dragon's dogma seems to about you (the player) living in this village. then suddenly a dragon attacks and you attempt to challenge him, fail because your not strong enough and some how this dragon takes your heart. I have no clue how you survive this because you should b dead when your heart is taken, but you the player have to find this dragon and get your heart back.
as far as the game goes, I do find it enjoyable and fun. it definitely is like skyrim and just as fun as skyrim. this game is definitely worth a rent. the game seems to show good quality, graphics and gameplay. I have a strider and I can use a bow and two daggers which I think is awesome.

I was pleasantly surprised with this little action-RPG. Imagine Fable 2 and monster hunter had a baby and forced it to play tabletop D&D, and you'd get pretty close to this.
Dragon's Dogma is basically a free world rpg Not particularly my cup of tea, BUT (and this is a big butt. Er, big but I mean) the game play and character development make this one incredibly addictive. There are quit a few unique classes to play as (and they can be switched to at the drop of hat, and each class has there own special unique abilities which are darn fun to just watch the animation. Heck, every ability in the game is impressive to watch. I mean, watching you character stab a thief with a 9 foot sword and then throw him 10 feet in the air it just good family fun.
Now there are some issues you might wanna be aware. One is that the world is HUGE. Feels as big as Skyrim. This I actually loved. Tons of random areas to explore and pillage. Unfortunately, there's only way to travel without hopping it, sort of a town call scroll, but these are rare , can only be used once, and have a limited number in the world.
And if you were expecting a grand story right off the bat, you're in for a treat. The razorblade in a caramel apple kind. The main story is quite slow going, giving more emphasis on side quests. But these are interesting enough on there own rights.
And the last thing you might wanna know about are the pawns. You can hire three comrades that are devode of free will of their own (pawns of course) and do anything you tell them. The pawns do not require payment. I dunno if its just me, but they come off as sort of self proclaimed slaves..
Not even to mention the fact you can lend your main pawn to other players as well. When done, they return with gifts from the player who borrowed them. All I'm missing is my pimp cane and hat.
All said and done, dragon's dogma it definitely worth a try, especially if you've always wanted to scale a Cyclops and poke him in the eye with your fi
