Acronym: Computer Role Playing Game

Adaptation of the pen and paper RPG to the Computer. The first two major CRPGs were Ultima and Wizardry. The genre has since evolved with its own conventions separate from the pen and paper game but at the same time still drawing influence from the source material. Many sub-genres and splinter genres have been established such as rogue-likes, MUDs, Action RPGs, JRPGs, and MMORPGs

Misnomer: CRPGs today are not necessarily exclusive to the Computer and have expanded to console platforms more and more since the first Xbox. The term "Western RPG" has been used to show distinction from the popular JRPGs in the console space.
Early era CRPGs: Ultima , Wizardry, Wasteland, Might and Magic
90's era CRPGs: Darklands, Fallout, Baldur's Gate
Modern CRPGs: Knights of the Old Republic, Neverwinter Nights 2, The Witcher
