Fighting Fantasy eh? That's not at all meant to leech off the popularity of other games I'm sure...

The Fighting Fantasy series pioneered paperback role-playing books in the early 1980's. In fact, there was nothing like it at the time. Each book used a dice rolling system for combat. The reader had to use pen and paper to keep track of the items they found during their adventure. Additionally, the books came with their own inventory page if you wanted to use that instead. The Fighting Fantasy series not only came first, but itinspired many different Gamebooks over the years (including the Gamebook Adventure series by Tin Man Games).
