Before there were video games, there were novels, short stories, and adventure books where you had to choose what you were going to do and turn to a certain page to discover the outcome. There were also tabletop roleplaying games where someone would create a whole story based on the contents of rulebooks, and you'd create your characters and let a series of dice rolls decide their fates throughout the adventure.
