Dragon Age Inquisition has arrived at last, riding a massive hype train last seen ferrying the likes of Destiny and Watch Dogs.

Grand Theft Auto 5 was a crown jewel of the last generation of consoles. Released late in their life cycle, it brought an unpatrolled sense of place and purpose thought its beautifully realized game world.

I’m playing The Sims 4 for review, but a standard Review in Progress would be too commonplace, so instead we’re going to follow the story of a house that I am playing.

There’s only one way to find out, isn’t there?
