Home Console RPGs – The First Ten Years (Part 2)

Welcome to Part II of my examination of the first ten years of Home Video Game Console Role Playing Games, or HVGCRPGs. If you missed the first part, click here. We looked at the first five years of HVGCRPGs from the very humble beginnings of RPGs on the Atari 2600 in the early 80’s, up to The Legend of Zelda and Dragon Quest/Dragon Warrior for the Nintendo Entertainment System in 1986. Now, in Part II, we move on into years six through ten and start off with perhaps the biggest year console RPG’s would ever have, 1987.
