1up: With Dragon's Dogma, Capcom's Big Gamble Just Might Pay Off

Before playing the first few hours of Dragon's Dogma a few days ago, I didn't really know much about the game. In fact, my awareness of Capcom's upcoming RPG basically boiled down to a vague awareness that it's supposedly the most expensive product the company has ever produced, and the fact that the nickname for the game around the office is the rather pejorative "Monster Hunter for white people." Having spent a little hands-on time with the game, I can't speak to the former -- honestly, it's a little rough around the edges for what's supposed to be a big-budget Capcom project -- but I can definitely see where the latter comes from.

The story is too old to be commented.

The one who has no idea what your talking about is you.

It has no rpg features. Capcom has said its not an rpg but an action adventure. Are you so delusional you think you know more than capcom? If so your just a dellusional troll

in depth character customization - saints row
questing - zelda, gta
loot - zelda, okami
good story ( hopefully ) - nothing to do with what makes an rpg
a party system - nothing to do with what makes an rpg, you can control multiple characters in plenty of action adventures, and really there is no party. You have a helper that you basically have no control over. Its an AI team mate like alot of gta's have

oh my bad what is it that makes an rpg then? becuase last i checked those are all pretty standard features of what most consider a role playing game. you create a character, you play the role of this character in a fictional story in a fictional world.

i could just as easily do what you did there with almost any "rpg" such as final fantasy which has all those features as well and even its combat is more real time these days. start ocean is another example. are these rpgs or am i wrong about that too?

so tell me again what makes this an rpg? becuase as far as i cant tell just becuase its a real time battle system is why you are claiming its not an rpg.....its called an action/rpg dude. and this is equal parts both
