1. Shining in the Darkness
There is much I find interesting about the history of Shining in the Darkness. Western RPGs like Ultima & Wizardry. Then, some folks from Japan see, interpret it, and make Dragon Warrior/Quest & Final Fantasy - Eastern RPGs. Then, some other sub-group breaks away from the Dragon Quest folks to make this thing. This combination of random enemy encounters, first-person, turn based, dungeon descending, RPG, with game-verbs based around extended grinds with bookending returns to town.
2. Eye of the Beholder
These dudes just made a sweet dungeon crawler with a gang-leader Beholder at the bottom of the city sewer.
