It's Skyrim, but more intimate

This game is a lot like other fantasy/fighting games. This one happens to be more focused around the character interactions than the fighting. The result is a game with less violent than a game like Skyrim, but with a bit more sex and swearing. If your kid attends public school, don't worry about the swearing. The occasional curses are about half of what they hear in a day. The sex is less about the act itself and more about the relationship between your character and your allies. occasional breasts or butts are shown, but really, your kids would see more at an art museum. If you have a mature, fantasy loving young teen, this is the perfect game for them.

Best instalment in the series (so far)

This is definitely a must play RPG with a very good story, good characters and amazing gameplay. The game is beautiful with magical colours, different environments and so on.

Good game but quite scary

I think it is great but I would have waited another year before playing this. It's quite scary and violent in parts. I say 13/14 plus. I like the team work, story and visuals of this game.

Awesome

Honesty the world is so amazing and the soundtrack is the best thing ever. You will literally be amazed by the equality that we don't even see in the real world yet. You companions are the best they are fun to hang out with and to talk to but, the advisers are the best I love Cullen, Josephine, and Leliana to the death. Plus if you don't want us to see naked people we are going to see it some day, so whats the point of hiding it now. As for the violence if you don't like the blood stains just go to the settings and turn it off. There is like no cussing and it's very justified when it happens like you understand why Dorian cusses at his father or when someone ties you up and leaves you die to demons. Plus you get to drink alcohol only once and they watch you drink alcohol probably way more then just once. Its a great game and you and you kid should play it.

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+

I love this game!

Creative, fun, and original. Great storytelling and really fun gameplay. The characters are really interesting, voice actors are good and there is diversity among the characters. Discusses themes of sexuality and gender well. Some implied and more graphic sex scenes occur, so know your kids tolerance for these things before playing.

Perfect

There is nothing wrong with this game; only unrealistic violence, and language doesn't really matter. The only thing is the sex, but it is not negative; women and men are viewed as equals. That is also the good message. The heroes of the game are driven by a good cause; to save the world. This game is excellent and if your child 11 or older wants it, it is a good pick.

Massive fantasy epic with a sprawling world to explore

There is so much content in this game that it may even rival skyrim! The world is massive with tons of gear to collect, allies to make and enemies to fight. The battles are bloody but are not brutal as the combat system is similar to an MMO. There are some sex scenes with breast nudity however it is all brief and it's animated for gods sake! There is infrequent use of f**K as i only heard it twice during my 200 hours+ adventure through Thedas!
