I haven't got this game and I don't think I will have chance to get it. Plus the fact I am not as into massive RPG's anymore unfortunately, I tried to play Oblivion and Skyrim and got bored of both after about 10 hours. I'm not sure if Dragon Age is the same kind of game but it looked it from what I read and saw online.
Don't get me wrong I used to love them and if they ever remade FF8 or 9 for next gen I would be all over that, I preferred the old turn based combat system to the modern way RPG's have gone. I had a few good RPG's on the 360, there was one JRPG which was turn based but I forget the name now, that was ace
Things like Breath of Fire on the old PS1 were great, all those kind of ones did it for me but I dunno, just not that into modern ones. Tastes change I suppose, if I'm going to play an open world game I prefer something like Assassins Creed or Farcry.
To be honest I also got bored of oblivion, and I am into RPG's.
In my opinion DA:I is not like oblivion and skyrim, it is very different.
Its not true open world, just has very large areas to explore.
There is a clear path to do the story, whilst skyrim and oblivion its very easy to spend 100s of hours doing other things.
You have a party vs the one character in those games.
Its third person view not first person view.
The combat system is way better.
I also love quality turn based rpg's, ironically the last one that was a hit was funded by microsoft. Lost oddysey. A big problem with those games they have largely moved over to hand held consoles and alot arent been translated to english anymore.
