    No mention of Adventure? I'm shocked. Especially since you called it groundbreaking in an older article.

    Actually, Ultima IV is considered to be the one worhty of praise: dialogue trees, a morality system, and a completely open world game.

    Hohoho Skyrim is a setback from Oblivion and Morrowind, it's cranking it down RPGs have been getting worse over the years, just look at FFXIII At least there's still the DS/PSP, they had so many good JRPG's it's nearly impossible to count them all

    I'm surprised you didn't pick FFXIV over XIII. Well at least till it gets fixed anyway.

    I don't typically count XIV/XI. But yes XIV makes XIII look like Chrono Trigger in terms of pretty much everything

    Now here's a subject I'd genuinely want to read more about, mostly because unlike fps, I couldn't play most of these in their time - both because it's an older genre, and because I didn't read english well enough to play these until the late 90's. I mean, the first "game on which you play a role" I tried to play was ultima VIII. It had too many parameters to handle, and sent me frequently to leaf through the dictionary to understand complex words, like "Avatar". That left me with a bad taste, and convinced me that RPGs are not for me. And are gay. The first RPG I played to completion was The Last Remnant btw.

    But then, nowadays it's getting harder to find a game that does'nt incorporate RPG mechanics to some extent, so I guess RPGs got the last laugh on me. :s

    There's a college course on the history of RPG? Where do I register?! XD
