(Off-topic) What is a "CRPG"?

    I always thought CRPG was the proper name for a computer RPG (remember the controversy over that, about 20 years ago in this very website?)as opposed to plain RPG, which was specific to the pen-and-pencil game so popular then. (And is still popular, eh Peter2?) But I see games listed in Steam as being CRPG, which seems like it would be ANY RPG listed therein. If "JRPG" means Japanese, does "CRPG" perhaps mean Chinese? Czech? Croatian? I haven't seen the term used in "PC Gamer", to which I subscribe.

    Inquiring minds want to know! Thank you.
