Terminology

Fantasy video games generally encompass concepts such as magic, sorcery, and the supernatural. Dungeons & Dragons, Diablo, Heroes of Might and Magic, and Ultima: The Savage Empire are all examples of Fantasy.

While Fantasy generally refers to situations and abilities that would not be possible in real life, video games with a futuristic approach generally fall under the genre of Science-fiction.
