We have a system with Bioware Games. Marguerite plays them, I provide regular backseat support/audience and where needed an extra ideological viewpoint. It worked like a charm for the Mass Effect playthrough she did in 2012 and it’s been going well for the excellent Dragon Age: Inquisition.
One of the things I’ve really enjoyed about it is the depth of the world. There’s a ton of characters, all with their own backstories and all able to interact with each other very differently. None of them are entirely whole people, all of them are differently broken and seeing them interact with each other plays like a really good longform TV series that occasionally you need to save, quit out of and go to bed. Also, Varric’s fantasy film noir past, the beautifully written and performed Krem and the magnificent, seven-foot Qunari dudebro that is The Iron Bull are worth the price of admission all by themselves.
The music is one of the major highlights too, both the instrumental score by Trevor Morris and the songs that play in the Tavern you spend a lot of time in. Those are especially fun, giving you an idea of the current mood in the game as well as in one, especially catchy case, a musical sketch of a particular character. They’re all witty, subtle pieces of music that help make the game what it is.
And now, they’re free, as well as the sheet music for them
So, go grab them and get a small piece of a colossal, and remarkable, game. If nothing else it’ll give you something to listen to while you’re planning your next playthrough…
