parents guide to Dragon Age Inquisition
Dragon Age Inquisition is an addicting fantasy RPG set in the fantasy land of Thedas. Like most fantasy RPG's Dragon Age contains questions of religion and faith.(the entire plot revolves around you being believed to be Andraste's chosen, for those who don't know Andraste is the wife of the Maker/God).As with All Bioware games dragon age has the player make tough moral choices which may e distressing to some younger players. The game also contains optional sex.
Sex/nudity 4/10: All of it is OPTIONAL. men and women viewed as equals. The player can take part in both bisexual and asexual relationships. the player character and the love interest of choice are shown kissing then the scene fades to black showing them in bed later. No genitals but bare breasts can be seen for about a minute and character a clearly naked.There is also some sexual dialogue/references.An example of this is after a battle if Iron Bull is in your party he'll ask if "anyone else is turned on right now".
violence 8/10 Very fantasy like. no worse than a PG-13 movie, Players can slash, stab, shoot with a bow and arrow, and cast spells to burn, paralyze, or freeze enemies. Most of the enemies are demons but there are some humans and other creatures. in a cut scene in a optional quests a character gets their throat slit. (no worse than pirates of the Caribbean movies which has heart ripping). If you chose a certain path in the game a character will jump off a cliff rather than be captured by you. When you get to Skyhold you will be asked to judge criminals. you can either spare or kill them. note that the judging sections are optional but adds to the story. Enemies bleed. After battles you and your party will be covered in blood for a short time. some major charter suffer injuries depending on your choices.
swearing 4/10 infrequent but there is some usage of the f word and other language.(No worse than The language in The Martian).
Ease of play 8/10 the game is very addicting (I have well over 100 hours).
Some parts are frustrating if you are under level.
drinking 3/10 references to alcohol some wine crates in Skyhold.
consumerism 6/10 As with all EA games there is a lot of additional content you can pay for. But if you get the game of the year edition like I did it all comes bundled with the game and is cheaper than buying it separately.
conclusion if Dragon Age inquisition were a movie it would be PG-13 for strong sequences of Fantasy violence, some scary creatures, brief strong language, and some sexuality/ nudity. 14+
