Every Turn-Based RPG I’ve Played

From approximately 1989 to 2004, I was an ardent fan of role-playing games. I loved the relatively low-stress engine that didn’t require me to mash buttons on my controller, and I also loved entering names of me and my friends in the roles of the heroes (and occasionally, a love interest). I eventually lost interest in modern RPGs, partially due to their size and endless sidequests, but mostly due to getting older and preferring casual games. Now that I have a family, I can’t see myself dedicating the time it takes to win an RPG. So this list may wind up being static.
