the problem with CRPG is that it doesnt have a proper definition.

does it need to be based on DnD?
Then what about Dragon age?
deos it need to be party basd? then what about Neverwnter Nights
Does it need to be isometric? Then again dragon age after 1
Does it need to be RTWP? Then what about ToEE?

Most people know what a CRPG is when you tell em the word CRPG, but saying what ISNT a CRPG is pretty tough.

Is Shadowrun returns a CRPG? Is dragon age inqusition a CRPG?
if not why so? are the goldbox games CRGPs? What about wizardry?
