I’m replaying Dragon Age 2 after five years at the behest of a friend who said the Legacy DLC was worth it. There are definitely thoughts going on in my brain, but the whole “doors that are unable to open because we just reused the same five maps” is still very much true.
The reason it’s an issue is because the doors just…don’t open. They’re there, you can see on the map there are paths and rooms beyond them but there’s no indication that they’re locked or acknowledgement that they’re unable to be open. You just follow along and then, oh! you can’t go here this time, sorry. Initially I was capturing every one I came across but there were too many to keep it up.
