This stuff in my wishlist/backlog lingers around FOREVER.

I think of a CRPG as literally a PC running the show the way a dungeon master would. These games are often quirky and can have flaws in their arbitrary mechanics. Given that they are computer games, the genre has cross-spread a bit. They are often associated with the isometric view that was popular in 1990’s thanks to Direct3D which allowed for really nice ‘scenery’ art. New iterations seem to be strongly tethered to the nostalgia that target audience has for old games.

I didnt include “Gold Box” games cause there are just too many to list/old, and I didn’t include Skyrim or Bethesdas games only because too popular/not productive for poll’s sake. (DA and Witcher are too relevant to skip) but feel free to write or mention anything related you personally like. Other odds and ends are stuff like Black Mirror, Dungeon Rats, Hard West, Inquisitor, Lord of Xulima, Some entires in the Wizardry and Ultima Series, Vampire the Masquerade: Redemption, etc. I was going to make this poll the other week when Divinity Original Sin 2 was about to come out but seeing that a few people on grouvee have had some of these games hit the main page are playing some things right now, i figure its worth a votethread/discussion. There are SO MANY OF THESE things and the genres twist and turn together when you branch out into TBT games, I got into it with black isle’s fallout 2, and catching up/cataloguing this stuff is on my perpetual list of things to do.
