Dragon’s Dogma
Capcom surprised gamers everywhere when they announced a new role-playing IP for two reasons: Capcom doesn’t typically make many RPGs, and Capcom doesn’t typically make many new IPs. Luckily for us, Dragon’s Dogma ended up being a fantastic fantasy RPG with incredibly engaging gameplay, beautiful environments, spectacular boss fights and an awesome pawn system that allows created characters to level up within other gamer’s adventures. Even though I’ve seen some truly frightening pawns out there, Dragon’s Dogma has given us an RPG experience worthy of the Best.
