Dungeons and Desktops: The History of Computer Rol&hellip by Matt Barton
5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what you want, 12 May 2012
If you are interested in the history of CRPGs (primarily PC and western-style CRPGs - there is a section on JRPGS too but it's one one section out of quite a long book) then it is hard to imagine anyone ever writing a better book than this.
