The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has handed out a Special Recognition award to Dragon Age: Inquisition, appreciating the game for its representation of LGBT characters. The organization wrote on its website:

Electronic Arts and BioWare’s videogame Dragon Age: Inquisition received a Special Recognition award for the many complex and unique LGBT characters prominently integrated throughout the game. GLAAD’s Special Recognition awards are typically given to outstanding media projects for which there is not a competitive category.

A BioWare representative later told Polygon that the company was “proud and happy” to receive the award. 

Dragon Age: Inquisition won critical acclaim upon release. PlayStation LifeStyle’s Mark Labbe praised the game for its immersive gameplay, story, and characters. You can read his review in full here.
