@fobwashed said:I'm fairly deep in gaming and have never heard the term CRPG before. To google!They aren't really made anymore, is why. The term is mostly used to distinguish them from JRPGs back when those were the big things all the console players were hanging their hats on. Generally, they are focused on exploration, numbers based RPG combat, and letting players have lots of freedom to decide their character's direction. Its pretty easy to follow the path from the old-school CRPGs (like Baldur's Gate and the old Elder Scolls games) to stuff like Skyrim today (thought obviously, Skyrim is more mainstream focused and wouldn't really qualify as a CRPG).
