Dragon’s Dogma is a fantasy RPG title by Capcom which originally released for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2012. It was fairly well-received in reviews and amassed a cult following from fans due to the interesting Eastern take on Western Fantasy genre conventions and tropes, borrowing ideas from popular fantasy titles such as Lord of the Rings and also mythological creatures from traditional mythology. Four years have passed and now we finally see Dragon’s Dogma making a triumphant return on the PC platform.
As this game is fairly aged and part of the previous generation of titles, it may come as no surprise to you that Dragon’s Dogma runs on even aged PCs incredibly well. I was playing this title on a PC using the NVIDIA GTX 660 graphics card and an AMD 8120 processor (a processor which has since been removed from the market due to overheating and performance issues) and I was able to play with nearly all setting on high with a smooth frame rate of 60, dropping to as low as 45 in intense situations. As this is a port of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen, if you have played the game previously and are expecting brand new content, you can give this port a miss really.
