Following a familiar Bioware pattern, the third installment in the Dragon Age series attempts to be much more of an action game than a Nerdy RPG For Nerds. One of the ways they've tried to distance themselves from That Kind Of Thing is by removing the ability to interact with distant objects by clicking on them, requiring you to manually walk towards an object and then click on it. This is, objectively, a more action-packed and rewarding object-clicking experience.
As someone who was very accustomed to The Old Ways, that means I've spent a lot of time in Inquisition standing still, trying to interact with something far away and wondering why nothing was happening.
