has shared some Dragon's Dogma PS3 video footage today from E3 2011 stating that the video game is not an RPG.
To quote: In the beginning of Dragon's Dogma, you are immediately confronted by a dragon that rips out your still-beating heart and flies away. Your quest is to track down the dragon and discover why he stole your heart and why you can still hear his voice echoing in your head.
At PlayStation's E3 livestream, Product Manager Mike Schmitt gave a live demo of our E3 build of Dragon's Dogma. The dragon rears its head, breathes a spout of fire and flies off, paving the way for an intense battle with Orcs and Harpies.
It also introduces the Chimera, a monstrosity that combines the attributes of a serpent, goat, and lion. The E3 demo introduces the gameplay concept of "pawns," or computer-controlled companions that aid you in the fight.
Dragon's Dogma is not an RPG. The development team has previously masterminded the Devil May Cry games, Resident Evil 4, Killer 7, and many more. This team likes action, and that fact shines in Dragon's Dogma – a game with fast, stylized combat in an open world filled with massive beasts.
