While it is understandable why some people might not like some aspects of DAI, the game is not even close to the epic fail that was Andromeda.

Comparing DAI to Andromeda is simply insane.

Andromeda does not feel like a Mass Effect game, everything is weird and bad. Hell... even the body models of the characters are all weird and unathletic with too big heads, like they are all body type 1 from swtor, on top of everything else that is wrong with that game. The point is the Mass Effect franchise is somewhat complete with 3.

The DA franchise is not complete without Inquisition and it still feels like a Dragon Age game. However you are beggining to see there, some vibes that will be completely embraced later with Andromeda. I am not talking about the mmo elements, they are insignificant. Still DAI is still in the family of ''good RPG games'', even if it is not like the likes of Origins.

There is alot I can forgive from a game , bugs and such .

But alas, I tried really hard to like DAI and MEA and it just leave you feeling empty and frustrated at best . And you can't help the ''WTH WERE YOU THINKING ?! WTH IS THIS ?!?'' .

I did get past my massive butthurt over DAi, and I'm working on my MEA butthurt lolol

well that last part is a lie..if anyone know who said ''The Banging Goona be Good'' , plz let me know. I've got a copy of MEA to shove up their fanny! lol

That's a misconseption ? (sorry but english is my 4th language but I think I got that word right?) .

Meaning that peoples often see a ''I don't like DAI! It was crap'' and automaticly assume 'Oh they are comparing DAI to DAO! Ohhh so they are one of thoseee!'' .

Let me tell you a little story !

I played DAO on Steam . And on Steam, my copy of DAO crashed for me...about 15 times on the same spot on my 1st playtrough . I picked a Mage-Elve and on your way up to the Tower after you get wynn, right at the door that lead you to the 3rd level ? Damn game kept crashing and crashing .

So...I delete that character , I'm frustrated . I make a Cousland, get past ostagar..blablah and go back and do the Tower again, begging inside of myself..plz don't crash again!!!

Miracle, I didn't . I end up in the fade , I become a mouse..and it start crashing no stop .

Then, it crash when dark spawn show up, it crash when there is a cutscene somewhere in the wildreness , it crash in Lothering when Spider, bears , Wolf attack you..when Villages attack you..when Dark Spawn attack you...

I finished the game twice since I got it years ago . By using a cheat that kill all monster as soon as they show up.

It was the only way . I've tried the long WALL OF TEXT directive of forcing it to work under DirectX9, Lower this and that, change this in the ini file, update your driver...etc .

All of that, it only made the crash goes from 5min to 30min . It still crash to this day for me .

And then when I finally tried to play the expansion 'Awakening' I think it was called ?

I end up with bugs, cutscene not firing , npc not showing . No crash, but bugs that stop you from going forward .

So I was never been able to finish it and to this day I don't know how that expansion end .

When I got my hand on DA2 , it was..a dream come true . No crash, no freezing, no bug..no nothing .

I loved it. I loved it above DAO, and above DAI .

I honestly can't wait for it. It'll certainly be entertaining seeing people like you lose their minds over a game that is actually great. Like I can respect not liking Dragon Age:Inquisition but wishing the saga to die, when for you it seems it already is dead anyway, is just needless really. Reminds me of people asking for SWTOR to close down merely because they don't like X expansion.

I don't personally care how many ''100% Loved it'' review, or score..or prizes a game get . if I don't like it, I don't .

And DAI was shallow, empty with nothing to hook you on.

Spoiler


DAi was supposed to be grindy, with crappy Loot on the side and the weakest story ever . If that was the aim, then yes, it deserve the prize and accolade it did get .

when I want to grind, I play MMO . Single Player games shouldn't be grindy .

And the writing is going down hill, I'm not holding any illusion that DA4 gonna be any Good .

Of course, this is my opinion. Some peoples loved DAI, just like some LOVE Skyrim . I hated Both with a passion lol
Eh fair enough, I still love them both to death (Even though I prefer Oblivion over Skyrim) but we'll agree to disagree then.

No I wish for them to not keep churning out a franchise to simply make money of it.
Which ends up tarnishing the reputation of the franchise, like everything it runs it's course some creators are smart and understand this which is why they stop creating whatever it is when it's great, so it will forever stay great.

It happens in every part of entertainment (Movies, TV and Games)
Yes I was the type to say Star Wars didn't need a 7, 8 or 9 because it undone the whole saga and made it pointless.

Also you're making your mind up that DA:4 whatever it's called is going to be "a great game" hello track record?

People asking SWTOR to close is a different thing to someone stating that what goes up must come down.
When developers don't own or have creative control over their IP's they have to attend meetings with their publishers who own the IP which causes for more issues with the current BW being on a thin string, the publishers also request clauses be made for the greenlight like (it must have MX's in) and so forth, truthfully EA doesn't need BW to create it as isn't obliged to let them, heck they'd probably have a better chance letting Respawn make the game and stamp BW on the front atleast die hard fans would buy it for BW sake and it'll probably be as good as a classic BW game.

Funny enough I do love DA:O the most but you gotta play that on PC it just had that raw feeling of a very fleshed out RPG experience.

DA:2 I really like although I hated playing it on PC but when I got on Xbox (Thanks Xbox Games with Gold) I played it and actually enjoyed it as an experience when developing time was taken into account. The story was pretty neat and I loved that your sister came a night warden then came back but because I couldn't explore or that story wasn't long enough I couldn't play by her side as a bad ***, I liked that the companions had areas where they'd be and I really like the skeletons revamp to be more jumpscarish beginning scene make me spill my tea.

Things I hated reused dungeons, inability to gear companions, removed abilities from Origin, Short story, that witch she was like the Kreia of DA not even used to the full potential, not enough free roam I wanted another city or two, being locked from playing after completion.

Sorry I'm not a nerd when it comes to lore so I don't know what any of the things/names are.

I agree, I stuck with a Battlefront 2 and actually it's a really good game now.. such a shame the player base has been dead.

But DA:I was a live service game that well never got better over time reminds me of games before dial up internet at least if a game was broken back then it had some uses like as a tea coaster or as some fire wood.

Damn digital downloads.

I like Oblivion, kinda remind me of daggerfall but all upgraded ? I know Oblivion doesnt have generated dungeon like daggerfall did lol but it has a similar atmosphere to it. A certain something, that was missing in Skyrim .

I modded the hell out of skyrim, and I was still bored to tears . I found that it was more fun modding the game, then actually playing it lol .

Saying something is great is inherently a subjective statement. It always includes "for me" because it's impossible to say something is objectively great.

On topic: I enjoyed DAI and am hopeful for DA4, but cautiously so. The way its been described before as being a games as service style game puts me on edge. I really hope they don't destroy the franchise because I've always enjoyed the world they've developed.
