The lead quest designer at CD Projekt RED has criticised BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition for having too many fetch quests, although still maintains it’s a great game.
Speaking with Eurogamer Germany, Mateusz Tomaszkiewic, who is involved on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, shared his thoughts on the Electronic Arts-published fantasy title and RPGs in general.
"For my taste, it could do with less fetch quests. But it’s still a good game. Ultimately, it increases the diversity, which can never be wrong with role-playing games,” he commented.
“Well, my favorite open world game is Fallout: New Vegas. Even the monsters… There were these beasts who used to constantly tear me, what were their names again? Deathclaws. Just horrible creatures, since you could not just rush through them!
Also Gothic, an open world on a smaller scale but very well done with no scaling.”
