Dragon’s Dogma: 2012 Game Of The Year

ThirtyAndNerdy.com co-founder Matt Strnad makes a stance on why Dragon's Dogma is his pick for 2012 Game Of The Year! (Dragon's Dogma, PS3, Xbox 360)

Dragon's Dogma was definitely a contender in my book.

I loved Dragon's Dogma... So so much. Which is ironic because I hate Capcom soooooo much. Dragon's Dogma was so good though IMO, that it over-powered my hatred for Capcom and I actually bought the game at retail rather than used. I usually don't like to support Capcom this gen, but if it gets them to produce more games like this, then I'm all for it.

Thats funny cuz i felt the same way. I even bought all dlc to help support this game to see if an expansion or sequel could be made. And it continues because i am gonna have to sell my copy now if i want any money from it because the full game and expansion will be $40 in April...and i cant wait. This game was so good that i overlooked the lacking story, which i am a huge fan of. I love what they will be adding so i cant wait. I only wonder if one of the new enemies is an online enemy with rare loot. And i hope they include a new game + with increased difficulty. I spent all that time getting all the rare loot only to realize there was nothing to use it on.

Yeah. Personally, I can't wait for a possible PC port. Imagine the mod support a game like this could get.

Love the game... but my character became so powerful. I would love to make monster level up with me or have more hp or become harder to kill. High Bolide a Chimera and 7/8 meteors tend to hit the boss for an insta kill.

I would love to have Dragons Dogma 2 with multiplayer co-op and a bigger world with stronger, harder monsters.

Probably the best game Capcom has churned out recently.

Assassin class is definitely my favorite.

Haha, glad someone agrees! I've talked to people who love it as much as myself, but I've also read a lot of reviews by people who felt it was incredibly bland.

not mine, the game itself is great in gameplay but the lack of difficulty really hurt the replay value
thirtyandnerdy  +   966d ago
I totally agree! I thought it was tough in the beginning, especially with as much as the game let's the player explore at their own pace (never knowing what the heck you're gonna run into). But after beating it and downloading the "Hard More" update, I still breeze through the game with a character (and pawns) that are only in their high 60's.
joab777  +   966d ago
Theres a hardcore update? I didnt know that. I havnt played it through the 2nd time cuz i was waiting for further content hoping the new game plus would have a higher difficulty. Like i said above, i love the online ur and getting rare loot but there was nothing to do with it once u got it. I wonder if get a level raise too or u can just choose 3rd tree os skills. My characters are such a high level.

I had a lot of fun with the game. Little too unpolished I think for game of the year. Excellent entry though. Hopefully, this expansion/new game will be even better.

I think if Capcom gives this another go with some more polish and refinements, this could be a truly incredible game.

I liked Dragons Dogma, it was a very good game, but somethings...were just irritating.
GuruStarr78  +   966d ago
This was my 2012 game of the year as well!
joab777  +   966d ago
Me too but imagine how great it wouldbe with a polished story and an icrease in difficulty on ng+. I am not a huge fan of immediate travel because for the first time in awhile i felt like each thing i did was an adventure.
bluetoto  +   965d ago
As long as the increased difficulty is an option like in the first everyone will win.

I'm not a fan of just increased stats for enemy A.I. as it doesn't make the fights more challenging, just longer. I want something that relies on skill and not patience.

Dark souls suffers from this, great game, poor A.I.

I liked it when I rented it, but I knew they would release a Super Dragon's Dogma: Arcade Edition, and sure enough, they are in April. Never buy a first edition Capcom game.

Haha, like clockwork, right? Silly Capcom. =/
