so I am relatively new to Action-RPG's. The only series I have played is Mass Effect (1 and 2) and I love them to death. I was looking into the medieval side of the genre and came across games such as Skyrim, Dragons Dogma, Risen, Dragon Age etc. I have crossed out Risen and Dragon Age. This leaves me with Skyrim and Dragons Dogma.
From the videos I have seen the combat in Skyrim doesn't look that great, as opposed to DD. Many people praise Skyrim, but there is also a lot of hate.
If there were demo's (on PC) out there for either of these games I would not be troubling you with my concern.
Which do you guys think is better? and why? if you feel both are MUST PLAYS then let it be known.
