PC RPG Quest – 1980s: The Golden Age Of RPGs

This week, Nadia and Kat are joined by Jason Wilson as they continue the PC RPG Quest with an exploration of an important chapter of RPG history, the '80s! Plus Nintendo direct news and Chris Pratt as Super Mario.

Episode Notes

The ’80s are alive and well in our souls — and on Axe of the Blood God, too. This week, Nadia and Kat are joined by their good pal Jason Wilson as they continue the PC RPG Quest. It all started in the ’70s, but PC RPGs got a major boost thanks to the rapid growth of the home computer market. It’s a very important chapter of RPG history. After all, without Ultima, Wizardry, or SSI’s Gold Box games, there’d be no Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy. What a sick, sad world that would be.

Also in this episode: A new Nintendo Direct brings a deluge of RPG news, and Super Mario now shares his soul with Chris Pratt. Mama Mia!
