The WesternRPG tradition, on the other hand, had a much more complicated history with action elements. The earliest [=WRPGs=], just like the earliest [=ERPGs=], were turn-based {{Dungeon Crawl|ing}}ers, and it wasn't until 1987 that real-time combat elements began entering the mainstream, with ''VideoGame/TheFaeryTaleAdventure'' (as well as ''VideoGame/DungeonMaster'' in a semi-real-time form). From the late 1980s, ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda'' gradually influenced Western [=RPGs=] to lean more towards real-time combat, inspiring titles such as ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Times_of_Lore Times of Lore]]'', which in turn inspired later ''VideoGame/{{Ultima}}'' titles. At the same time, the notion that RPGsEqualCombat was being challenged by ''VideoGame/UltimaIV'' (1985) and its sequels, which showed that the genre can be much more than that. Thus, instead of splitting along the line of turn-based vs. real-time combat, [=WRPGs=] gradually phased out the former in favor of the latter over the following decade, while exploring other aspects of RPG gameplay, such as [[InteractiveStorytellingTropes interactive narrative]] and [[WideOpenSandbox simulated worlds]]. Western [=RPGs=] eventually went MultiPlatform during UsefulNotes/{{The Sixth Generation|OfConsoleVideoGames}}.
