Hey, hands up who remembers Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone's Fighting Fantasy gamebooks?

Back in my day, we had Choose-Your-Own-Adventure books, which provided a basic interactive narrative to encourage children to read. Jackson and Livingstone had their own take on this, but being designers of tabletop RPGs in their own right, added combat and stat-tracking systems to recreate a role-playing game without a DM.

Fighting Fantasy is now back and available digitally, to introduce a new generation of players to this very old-school take on single-player RPGs. Check out Neal Chandran's review below to see if it holds up in 2017.
