Abstract or description

Though not the first video game set in the ruins of an apocalypse—examples
of earlier games include the car-combat role-playing game Autoduel (1985) and
the turn-based strategy game Road War (1986)—Wasteland was groundbreaking
because it was the first ever sandbox, post-apocalyptic, role-playing game, and it
created many of the foundational narrative themes of the genre.
