(Video) These Mods REALLY Improve Dragon's Dogma

Mouse and WADS is fine for a lot of games. It’s not bad for Dragon’s Dogma either, but for a game that originally came from consoles, some players just can’t get away from using controllers. Unfortunately, if your pad of choice is the DualShock 3, Dragon’s Dogma doesn’t swap the PC button keys with your DS3 buttons on the screen. This mod is your answer.

The Best Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Mods PC Editorial (14)

“They’re masterworks all, you can’t go wrong.” While the European fantasy of Dragon’s Dogma is well-suited to the game’s over-the-top English voice acting, there are still some folks who want the original Japanese experience. “They’re masterworks all, you can’t go wrong.” Or maybe they want to ease the sting of the repetitive dialog by putting it into a different language. “They’re masterworks all, you can’t go wrong.” This mod restores the console version’s option of Japanese voices. “They’re masterworks all, you can’t go wrong.” Get it from Nexus Mods.

The Best Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Mods PC Editorial (15)

HD Environment Texture Overhaul

The Best Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen Mods PC Editorial (16)

While Dragon’s Dogma looks pretty great on PC with its improved resolution and framerates, you’re still looking at nasty, 2012-era textures once you get up close. And who wants that? This mod aims to completely replace the muddy vanilla textures with new, high-resolution options that look oh-so-much prettier. It’s another work in progress, but you can expect to see the look of the world slowly improved as more environments get updated. Grab it from Nexus Mods.
