L’un des premiers jeux à avoir utilisé ce inspiration est l’un des ancêtres les plus vénérés du style, Wizardry, qui mêlait aventure à los angeles première personne dans des univers simulant los angeles 3D et insertion de monstres en second. Lorsque le most popular épisode sortit en 1981, sa qualité graphique permettait de découvrir une imaginative and prescient plus intimiste où l’on parcourait des donjons et affrontait des monstres puissants dans une quête dont les ressorts scénaristiques importaient finalement assez peu. L’expérience se suffisait à elle-même et les racines empruntées à Donjons et Dragons ont finalement fondé les bases du jeu de rôle occidental qui va se développer à sa suite. Catégorisé dans les dungeon crawlers, des jeux mêlant exploration et motion à los angeles première personne, los angeles série Wizardry se développera pour devenir une véritable référence du C-RPG, passant le flambeau à de multiples créations s’en inspirant.
