not really accomplished but
Final play time for Dragon Age Inquisition came in around 137 hours.

I tried to pretty much touch everything. I only finished one mosaic somehow. And so I found the final boss battle too easy, because it recommended levels 16-19, and I was level 24.

D said, well, if you did everything, then would you play it again?

I said sure, although not anytime soon, because there's always different choices to make. For example, I saved Hawke, because HAWKE (and Varric would have been sad. Varric/Hawke are the BroTP forever, even when Hawke's a girl.), and I told Leliana that I wouldn't support her as the Divine (and I love my Lele, but I thought Cassandra had the better plan, but Leliana becomes the Divine no matter what? I guess? because the epilogue said she was). And I let Morrigan take the power from the Well because I didn't know if it would kill me or what. and other stuff.

I loved the romance with Cullen, though, and can't imagine picking someone else. Finally, someone who sleeps with you and is HAPPY after instead of "OMG what did I just do I have to go now kthxbye" like Isabela and Fenris in the last game.

And the Wicked Grace card game scene was the best.


So the post-credits thing, then... there's either going to be an expansion or a fourth game.



Looking forward to some DLC.

I love how much you fangirl over the romance in a game in which romance is a secondary, even tertiary feature.

That's the whole reason I play these games. I basically stalk the characters waiting for new romance dialogue options to open up.

I haven't finished Inquisition yet because a part of me doesn't want it to end. Have just finished the Well quest, so not long to go now.

I agree with you about the Cullen romance - what I've seen of it is pretty much perfect so far. The scene in Skyhold's little shrine with the statue! Weeping happy tears forever! I went with Anders with one character in the last game, and Fenris with another and the amount of angst was untrue. Nice to have a straightforward romance with a straight up nice guy.

I could talk about these fictional romances all day.

I didn't want it to end either! Although when I was in the last area I explored, which was the Wastes, I think? I found that pretty tedious and wanted to move on, game-play and story-wise, but not to make it end! I wanted to keep talking to everybody all the time. Well, not Sera.

And Cullen is just dreamy. His character arc over the games was really well executed. It always feels better starting a new game with a new character and having a few familiar faces around. I was like "OMG it's Cullen! OMG there's a flirt-option! OMG it's a full romance and not a tease!"

Iron Bull was the best new character. I loved him. If not for Cullen, I might have gone with that romance.

Yikes, I do talk all day.
