Straight outta BioWare, here's a big chunk of the Dragon Age: Inquisition demo that was shown to attendees at E3. The game's out October 7 for current- and last-gen consoles (minus Wii U).
It looks nice. No doubt about that, but does anybody get that feeling like The Witcher series lapped Dragon Age so quickly that Bioware is scrambling to play catch up? (Catch up from an esteem point of view. Financially, I'm sure they're sound). Look at the parity between Origins and The Witcher 1 and now the gulf in maturity between The Witcher 3 and Inquisition. The Witcher just looks so... interesting and unorthodox, while Inquisition seems a little immature in its storytelling. The combat in The Witcher is more technical while Inquisition seems as if it can't make up its mind whether it wants to be Origins or Dark Souls. Now with Divinity Original Sin blowing the roof off of CRPGs again, and, conversely, with the intense competition in the action RPG realm that The Witcher and Dark Souls impose upon it, Dragon Age is in a funny, seemingly awkward position that it just can't seem to crawl out of.
Writing this, I noticed that I used the word 'seem' a lot. Well, hopefully when its time to actually give Inquisition a try, it will seem nice. At this point, it's just a matter of how nice, and it's hard to get a firm grasp on an answer.
