Here are some great action role-playing video games to play while waiting for Dragon’s Dogma 2. While many entries on this list will not be exactly similar to Dragon’s Dogma, as it’s a unique and one-of-a-kind RPG, I believe that any fan of the game will find these to be entertaining in a similar way.

I will include well-known and must-play titles in this list, but I want to focus more on RPGs that are not quite popular as ones such as Elden Ring. This is mainly because the original Dragon’s Dogma was such a game that was overlooked by many. And also, the games on this list feature relatively good combat that can be entertaining.

GreedFall

GreedFall is a heavily underrated RPG. First released in 2019, it’s set in a unique world that mixes elements from medieval fantasy worlds like Gransys from Dragon’s Dogma or the Continent from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and from fairly modern and advanced worlds like London from Bloodborne or the West Indies from Assassin’s Creed 4.

This is an unusual but exceptional setting for the game. It features unique enemy design, character design, and world design that has never been seen in other games. The combat is decent, and you can customize your equipment to a great degree, and that’s one of my favorite parts of the game.

The role-playing elements and the story are also very intriguing. While there are flaws in the game with exploration and gameplay, they do not make this game any less worth playing.

If you ever find it on sale on Steam or Humble Store, it’s worth checking out!

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (or its remaster, Re-Reckoning) is a game set in a vibrant and dreamy fantasy world. You play as a character you create, and the game is very interesting in terms of exploration and quests. It is set in an open world, and its combat system is very impressive.

Like in Dragon’s Dogma, you must pick one class at the beginning of the game. Personally, I think many of the classes are very satisfying to play. While there aren’t as many unique aspects to be found in this game as in Dragon’s Dogma, it is still well worth playing through.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance

This entry is quite different from the others on this list. Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a highly complex and advanced RPG set in the Holy Roman Empire. It is a game that I like to consider “edutainment,” which is a game that provides a wealth of historical knowledge as well as impressive and fun gameplay.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance‘s graphics are still some of the best in gaming. Its combat, albeit a bit clunky, is quite enjoyable once learned. It focuses heavily on realism, and the story is also very good. It’s a first-person RPG and for me, it’s a welcome change from the third-person perspectives seen in the majority of RPGs.

Elden Ring

I doubt if there are many readers here who haven’t heard of or played Elden Ring by now. It’s arguably FromSoftware’s most popular title by far; its fame and popularity are well-deserved.

Set in a huge open world with a plethora of hidden secrets and side content, Elden Ring provides hundreds of hours of content. Its combat is excellent and you have a mind-blowing level of gameplay freedom and variety.

Dragon Age: Origins

Because Dragon’s Dogma is about dragons, it’s only natural for me to include another game that features dragons. Dragon Age: Origins is one of the best RPGs when it comes to depth and lore. Its combat is drastically different from all the other entries on this list and many might even find it underwhelming because of its real-time tactical nature.

However, the quests and narrative of this game are mind-blowing. That is not really surprising, considering that this is a BioWare game. The world you explore is not quite as open as in the aforementioned titles, but it’s still very deep when you take the lore into account.
