The CRPG tag stands for "Computer Role-Playing Game." It is used to describe a specific subgenre of role-playing games (RPGs) that originated on computer platforms. CRPGs are characterized by certain gameplay elements and design principles that distinguish them from other types of RPGs.

In a CRPG, players assume the role of a fictional character and embark on an immersive adventure in a richly detailed game world. The player's character typically has attributes, skills, and abilities that can be customized or improved throughout the game.

Some key features of CRPGs include:

  • Narrative Focus CRPGs often place a strong emphasis on storytelling and player choices. These games offer expansive branching narratives with multiple paths, quests, and dialogue options that allow players to shape their character's story and influence the game world.
  • Character Development CRPGs provide deep character progression systems where players can customize aspects such as class, race, skills, attributes, and equipment. As they progress through the game, characters gain experience points to level up their abilities and unlock new powers or spells.
  • Tactical Combat Many CRPGs feature strategic turn-based combat or real-time combat with tactical elements. Players must make decisions regarding positioning, use of skills or spells, managing resources like health or mana points while battling enemies in challenging encounters.
  • Persistent World In some CRPGs like massively multiplayer online (MMO) RPGs or open-world sandbox RPGs, there may be shared persistent worlds where players interact with each other online either cooperatively or competitively.

Famous examples of CRPGs include:

  • Baldur's Gate series Developed by Bioware, these games are set in the Dungeons & Dragons universe and are known for their deep character customization, party-based gameplay, and rich narratives.
  • The Elder Scrolls series Games like Skyrim and Morrowind offer players vast open-world environments to explore, with non-linear questlines and a high degree of player freedom.
  • Divinity: Original Sin II This modern CRPG developed by Larian Studios puts a strong focus on player choice and tactical combat. It offers immersive storytelling, deep character development, and cooperative multiplayer options.

CRPGs provide players with complex narratives, compelling characters, strategic gameplay mechanics, and character progression systems that cater to fans who enjoy immersing themselves in expansive worlds filled with choices and consequences.
