Role-playing video game | footnotes


  1. ^ The original Dragon Quest game is often cited as the first role-playing video game,[citation needed] though it borrows heavily from the Wizardry and Ultima series.[citation needed] Further, in spite of coming after it, Western audiences consider Final Fantasy "more important" than Dragon Quest.[37]
  2. ^ This often gives an impression that JRPGs are similar to adventure games.[63]
  3. ^ Though some argue this has not been the case outside of tactical RPGs,[85] while others argue that combat systems in Japanese RPGs are too complex or lack accessibility.[84]
  4. ^ Though things like downloadable content can stem piracy to some degree, and MMO and single-player RPGs may to some degree attract different audiences—and thus not interfere with each other financially.[45][68][133]
  5. ^ Diablo III was also released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 3, 2013,[194] as well as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 19, 2014.[195]
  6. ^ Review aggregation sites like GameRankings and Metacritic omit reviews from many older print magazines.
  7. ^ For instance, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, which is the only Western RPG to have been awarded a near-perfect score by Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu.[226]
