I jumped into the Dragon Age franchise with Dragon Age: Inquisition, an action role-playing game. And, as usual, it’s the third game published. I jumped in without researching the preceding games, and in a way, you don’t really need to. All you need to understand is right there in the game itself. Sure, there must be tons of lore that went right over my head, but that didn’t hamper my enjoyment of the game at all.
