Videogame jewel genres: adventures and role playing games

August 22, 2014

Hi nonexisting audience. Therefore I have nearly no links to this blog/HP I’m proud to present nobody my nonsense for everyone.

There is a genre which is in my eyes the top of Videogaming. It’s about the games that creates an enormous adventerous atmosphere … with an immersion that leads to a deep gaming experience with spirit!

Since many years retro is the major factor for me in playing Videogames. So from time to time I play a retro RPG or adventure of the 16/32 bit ära (beside present RPGs).

As I thought about that issue, I created for fun a list of adventurous games (adv or RPGs) I have played. And while creating this list, so much memories came back.

Games I played much later are marked as RETRO with year. Games without a year I played whithin the console period:

[Added note 2015: This post is from 2014 – but I decided to edit this from time to time to add the Adv/RPGs I played. I will markt those games with EDIT and year in bold print when played and RETRO if a game from long ago. And I decided to add a strategy section.]
