It's the winner of countless awards over the past few months, and now developer BioWare has attempted to explain the success of the acclaimed Dragon Age: Inquisition .
Bottom line? As producer Mark Darrah said , it's a "return to form:"
"I think really it's both a return to form, a return to what BioWare did in its roots: exploration, story-telling, character development. Also, us starting to explore new areas [being] deeper, open-world gameplay. I think just that combination is what really resonated with people."
That's precisely why we gave Inquisition Game of the Year (along with numerous other outlets), and helps to explain why it landed top honors at the D.I.C.E. Awards this past week. Yes, we love returns to form, especially when fans of the genre have been requesting it for years. There are some developers who listen to such requests…and others who don't.
