The CRPG Book Project – 5th Edition (And Still Not Final…)

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 11, 2017

Felipe Pepe has been a man with a mission for several years. He’s been gathering together reviews from a modern-day perspective of Computer Role-Playing Games covering 40 years of history.

It ain’t done yet, but the current edition clocks in at a needle-burying 450 pages, covering over 250 games across 4 decades.  Naturally, that’s not everything (I suspect there’s been that many PC RPGs released in just the last three years!),  but it covers many of the most significant, popular, noteworthy, and/or influential games over the period.

The reviews and essays are by all kinds of people… bloggers, game developers, journalists. Even li’l ol’ me… including an article where I admit that even as a guy who celebrates “old school” style RPGs and is a developer of the same… I have no idea what the hell that means. I wrote that article a few years back, and I still don’t know. Doesn’t matter.

I also got to review of two favorites… Ultima Underworld 1 and 2.

Anyway, enough yappin’.  DOWNLOAD HIS BOOK! It’s awesome!
