|Dungeons & Dragons|
Games based off the popular Dungeons & Dragons pen-and-paper role-playing game.
Classic Dungeons & Dragons settings
The original D&D setting, by Gary Gygax. Two video games only use this setting.
Six D&D video games use no specific setting. The earliest two (Cloudy Mountain and Treasure of Tarmin) actually just use the D&D name, without any other element from it.
A "Basic D&D" setting. Two role-playing video games and three more video games use this setting.
One of the most famous settings, by Laura and Tracy Hickman. A role-playing video game trilogy and six more video games use this setting.
1987: Forgotten Realms
The main D&D setting, by Ed Greenwood. Currently, 32 video games use this setting.
More Dungeons & Dragons settings
A fantasy space travel setting, originally conceived as a bridge between different D&D settings. Only one video game uses this setting, but just the portion around the #Forgotten Realms (hence the name "Realmspace" in its title).
A gothic-horror setting. Three video games use this setting.
1991: Dark Sun
A post-apocalyptic setting, where magic is mostly replaced by psychic powers. Three video games use this setting.
A setting based on Arabian Nights. Only one video game uses this setting, and it received mixed reviews. It re-uses many graphical elements from the #Dark Sun games (released in the same years), such as deserts and buildings.
A Victorian Age steampunk setting, conceived as a bridge between different D&D settings. Only one video game uses this setting, but it received great reviews; it uses the Infinity engine of Baldur's Gate.
A setting where players act as rulers of nations, and deal with politics and strategy, instead of adventuring. Only one video game uses this setting, and it received mixed reviews.
A steampunk setting. Two video games use this setting.
