It is by Roo of Clan of the Grey Wolf, who does the "16 Bit Gems" video series. Sadly this means the video of 2 nearly 20 minute parts is primarily about the JRPG though it does actually give respect to both Dungeons & Dragons and the earliest electronic RPGs including the first network games from the 70s.
But its mostly about Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy, though is just a general overview.
As an "Electronic RPGs 101" sort of thing though its VERY good and well worth watching if you have the time. While I prefer western RPGs of the 80s and early 90s over Japanese ones, I vastly prefer both of those over more modern real time titles.
Sort of makes me nostalgic for some simple JRPG or CRPG fun.
A blog about tabletop hobby and or strategy games, with a side order of electronic turn based goodness here and there. Now with tons of retro gaming content both electronic and tabletop. Also with 20% more self loathing douchebaggery!
