CONFESSION: I feel like the rivalry/friendship system was one of the things 2 seriously did right. I could finally create a relationship with characters who did things I disliked or, just disliked in general, that wasn’t based on me kissing their ass. Hearing that it wouldn’t be there in Inquisition is breaking my heart, if true. I can’t be everyone’s friend and be realistic.
Confession: It really makes no sense that Hawke claims to barely remember her father since he only died three years before they had to flee to Kirkwall. Which means that Hawke would’ve been 15-16 when he died.
CONFESSION: I hope Inquisition goes back to the Origins/Awakening style of communicating. I didn’t care much for the way you could respond as Hawke, since all of the choices were pretty much the same but just in different ways of expressing them. It didn’t leave much room for diversity. They made Hawke too much like Shepard from Mass Effect. You don’t really get to have your own character like in Origins.
CONFESSION: This is gonna sound so sappy, but in DA2 I would have loved to see a cutscene of Hawke and the whole party at the Hanged Man for a night of drinks and Wicked Grace. It’s something you see in a lot of fanfiction and fanart and it’s suggested a lot during gameplay, but I would’ve loved to watch it while smiling like an idiot for the moment of friendship and light-heartedness.
Although I love the main storyline of DA2, I hope that Inquisition does a better job creating memorable minor characters & side quests. After completing the games multiple times I still can’t remember the minor characters & quests that show up in other people’s confessions, i.e., random homicidal bloodmage no. 2 blends together w/random homicidal bloodmage nos. 3, 5, and 7. The only side quests that really stand out are those relating to your followers. It’s a shame.
