PCGH Special: Important games of the role-playing genre (From the beginnings to 1995)
Today we present you a selection of RPG milestones - regarding technical aspects and the content.
The question arises what a role-playing game actually is. In a shooter game you sometimes have to choose which weapon you want to take, too - so do they matter? For this article we stick to a simple definition: Multiple possibilities to solve a problem (choices and consequences), focus on character development and a good storyline with optional quests are the features we are looking for - no matter whether if you have a single hero or a whole party. The fascinating Asia role-playing games of the Final Fantasy series and similar games will get their own article later on. Hybrids like the "Quest” -series (Hero's Quest, Space Quest, Quest for Glory) count as adventures in our opinion.
Now have fun while browsing the picture gallery. And if you miss a certain game, just use the comments to explain which game that is and why you think it should be part of this collection.
