The Return of the Races in DA: Inquisition

Ah, great news, great news indeed.

Game Informer has been spewin’ out some serious Dragon Age: Inquisition knowledge during their one month preview extravaganza awesomeness, and while you can bet your ass I’m staying up-to-date and stalking every single news article the moment they’re released for public consumption, I’m a bit behind on reporting it here. But that’s okay — all I ever really do during Dragon Age: Inquisition posts is squirt my fangirlisms all over you digital face. Also, that’s disgusting.

But seriously, I’m very pleased BioWare was able to implement different races in Dragon Age: Inquisition. I’ve always been a human kinda player, but I know several of you out there (not to mention the millions of you I don’t even, like, know) are so so SO passionate about having the option of racial selection — there is a LOT of truth re: Dwarven players’ passion — ¬†and it really adds something ,even for lame-o human players like myself. (I kid! Humans that play as humans are awesome!) Simply having the option to choose a different race other than what I picked¬†makes me feel as if I’m playing through a one-of-a-kind story. There’s something warm ‘n fuzzy inducing about knowing that if I decided to play as an elf I would experience slightly altered narrative throughout the game.

Good shit.

    Yeah, I’m really glad they brought this back. One of my favorite things about Dragon Age Origins was every time I started a new character as a new race I got a completely different opening sequence and it was like having 6 different games available to me. More, really, considering whether one was a mage, warrior, etc. But I was kind of awestruck when I’d play as an elf and have people talk down to me and then I kinda get the opportunity to be all, “Oh, really, bitch? Yeah, now bow down because I’m a fucking Greywarden. Yeeeeah, you like being under my boot.” So yeah, this is a great addition to what appears to be shaping up to be a sweet-ass game.

      Haha, I love it! That’s exactly it! Combine the origin stories with the different choices you could make, and you really do have totally different games available. I’m soooo happy about this.
