Salutations! Welcome to the home page of my computer RPG Club.
In my very humble opinion, the computer leads the pack as the best retro machine of all time. As part of the RPGBacktrack podcast and writing work I do with RPGamer, I have started a computer role playing game of the month. I challenge myself to play these games from the way back when, right up through yesteryear, and then write about my experience. And, you can join me! We can talk about it on Twitter (#CRPGClub), share our experiences, and you can even win our a prize from my list of free GOG games, just for participating! So, let’s talk about the games!

As you can see, 2019 is our year of the Witcher in #CRPG Club. While we will continue to work through Gold Box games, and dive into some action based RPGs, we plan to dive through the entire Witcher series before the year ends. And, you can join us! For the FULL experience, and bonus points, read or listen to the entire book series before playing! You can find out more information (such as what order) at PC Gamer.
There really are not any hard or fast rules. You can play all of the games on the list in order, or you can skip around. You can take longer than a month one some and zip through others. You can talk about them on Twitter using the hashtag #CRPGClub , or use the comments below! Really, this is just an excuse for us to play some awesome CRPGs and talk about them with each other and our friends.
Share your experiences on Twitter using the #CRPGClub tag, or chat about it in our CRPGClub discord channel. For doing each of these, you are entered into JCServant’s monthly drawing to be able to choose one of the games listed below. If you share on both, you get two entries for that month into the drawing!
This list changes often, so check back from time to time.
