With Bloodborne slowly dripping away from everyone’s hands, it’s time for a whole new slew of games for the month of May.

Dragon Age is a huge game. It’s not surprising that there are plenty of environments to take in. To be honest, I am kind of surprised at how many times I stopped moving to take in the view. Yes, as a whole, none of the areas in Dragon Age can match Skyrim but I am uncertain if Skyrim takes the cake when you put Inquisition’s areas and put them all together. Either way I want you all ...
