Dragon Age is a fantasy role-playing video game series that was developed back in 2009 for Xbox 360 and PS4 with the title Dragon Age: Origins. It has got great popularity ever since and we have been seeing tons of versions released after that. The developers have also extended the game support for Microsoft Windows, and OSX. There are also new versions of the game that are being released for PS4 and Xbox One so you can expect some pretty decent graphics with cool animations, an amazing storyline filled with tons of magic, and great sound effects.
The game has got great popularity as we are obsessed with those magical creatures already. Dragon age allows you to have a closer experience with Dragons and go on magical adventures. The graphics are pretty close to reality and it looks like a movie that you can control. You get a chance to explore castles, dungeons, and control the storyline.
You get to choose how the story will unfold in the game and every choice you make will change your future in the game. The best thing that I personally loved about the game is its highly versatile terrain with mountains, snow, forests, and a realistic sky on it. Special weather effects make the experience more magical for you while you are playing Dragon Age. Of Course, there are different dragons from the old age stories that you get to interact with, fight, and make your way forward in the game.
There are several versions of the game that got released over time and have gained some pretty high popularity. A few of these versions that you must try if you liked playing the game and want to know more about the story are:
- Dragons Age: Origins-Awakening (2010)
- Dragons Age 2 (2011)

In addition to dragons, you can interact and fight some other cool and magical creatures in the game that make it more interesting. Not only your characters you choose but these creatures also have magical abilities of their own.

You also get to enjoy a better experience as you can team up with your friends and go on some magical adventures together. There are plenty of resources that you can gather and use on your adventures. In addition to these small encounters with the foul creatures and some battles that you might have to fight, you also get a chance to fight wards with strategies and command armies.
Overall, Dragon’s Dogma provides you a wholesome magical experience that is unmatched with this sort of game in every possible sense. Developers have paid great attention to graphics, rendering, train, animation, SFX, and VFX so you won’t feel the game lacking in any aspect at all.
While Anthem is not about dragons primarily, it is one of the latest and most applauded games in the role-play action video games that you must get your hands on. A collaboration of frostbite, BioWare, and Electronic Arts combined together to provide you with an unbeatable experience in the world of online multiplayer games. The game was released in early 2019 so it is a bit advanced than Dragons Age and Dragon’s Dogma and you can expect pretty high-resolution graphics with more smooth and stable animations thanks to high FPS support.
While the other two games are in the past based storyline, Anthem is taking place in the future with a wholesome story filled with fantasy and fiction. There are advanced robotics, aliens, and other cool creatures that you are going to interact with.
You and your friends assume the role o freelancers who are out there in the world on an expedition to find the unknown secrets and find the best for humanity. The game has some greatly designed terrain that would make you fall in love with it by the first look on the game. The vast open-world to explore with your friends gets interesting as you move forward and you will find it hard to get enough of this game.
