A nice list, indeed, and I

A nice list, indeed, and I was quite prejudiced going in when I saw the URL. Of course, there isn't a single CRPG on the list, which is somewhat shocking, really. I suppose at one level any list like this is an exercise in futility, since there are so many different types of games and gamers. Heck, it'd be hard enough just coming up with the ten most important shoot'em ups.

I suppose if I had to choose a single CRPG to represent the entire genre, I'd probably select Ultima III. But here's my entire Top Ten List for important CRPGs, based upon my research:

1. Ultima III
2. The Bard's Tale
3. Pool of Radiance
4. Dungeon Master
5. Ultima VII: The Black Gate
6. Fallout
7. Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn
8. Morrowind
9. Diablo
10. Neverwinter Nights (BioWare)
