5 Games Like Dragon’s Dogma

Dragon’s Dogma is yet another role-playing game. It has an interesting story line, with — obviously — a focus on dragons. Made by the same people — CAPCOM — who brought your Dark Souls, this title is a pretty unique one to get involved with. It’s difficult, it’s a little on the dark side, but it’s a great role playing game nonetheless.

Many herald the game as the best role playing game to date; however, as with everything, the game gets old after multiple playthroughs, and then you have fans looking for a similar game and experience on the market. While there are few games out there akin to Dragon’s Dogma, there are plenty of games that offer great combat systems and open world landscapes that the game offers.

So without further ado, here are our five favorite games like Dragon’s Dogma.

Mass Effect: Andromeda

Maybe you’re tired of the fantasy-style role-playing games and are looking for something a little more on the unique side. Mass Effect: Andromeda is that game, taking on a science fiction style and with one of the most rich, immersive story lines on the market. Players will be in the Andromeda galaxy, discovering strange, alien worlds. There’s a rich story line, hundreds of side quests that you’ll be able to part in, and a unique combat system. On top of that, there’s a lot of player-choice in the game that keeps things fresh and unique.

Fallout 76

Fallout 76 is the newest title on the market, but comes in at fourth place on our countdown. The developers — Bethesda — says this is the narrative prequel to the previous fallout games. It’s a purely online game, but still has a role-playing nature to it that requires you to work with players to survive, just twenty-five years after the bombs fell. There’s a massive open-world to explore, and you get a combat system similar to that of Fallout 4. There are plenty of side quests to take part in, as well as a rich story line.

The “online” aspect is the highlight of Fallout 76. You play with real people in this sequel, though you can also explore the expansive universe solo if you want. The game is four times the size as Fallout 4, so you’ll have plenty of content to keep you busy.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur comes up next on our list, and it’s a massive game. It was a big undertaking for the developers; however, they were successful and shipped a massive universe. There’s thousands of hours worth of content in this game, between completing quests and discovering the massive world.

On top of a big focus on exploration, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning has a great story line as well as hundreds of side quests. You’ll be able to customize your character, and even equip him or her with millions of combinations in skills, weapons, and armour.

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Inquisition comes in at second place on our list. Made by BioWare, one of the best developers as far as immersive storytelling goes. They put that same reputation into Dragon Age: Inquisition, and has made it one of the most loved fantasy stories in gaming. It has a unique combat system, though is far from the style that Dragon’s Dogma has. Inquisition was launched in 2014. It’s a good time to get in it right now, as fans are due for a new installment in the series soon.

There’s plenty of character customization in this game, a dynamic combat system, awesome dialog, and plenty of player-choice that puts you in charge of the story.

The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim

Coming in at number one place, and as a personal favorite, we have The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim. If you’re looking for a free style combat system — as well as an array of spells and enchantments to use — Skyrim will be right up your alley. On top of that, it has a massive universe that you can explore. There’s a rich, main story line, and thousands of side quests. All of that will keep you busy for thousands of hours easily, and even then, you may not be able to explore every corner that Skyrim has to offer.

Skyrim has a unique character creation system as well. There are hundreds of modifications you can make to your character, from the various elements on your character’s and to the overall body structure.
