This is what he was talking about I imagine:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronology_of_console_role-playing_games
I didn't really search it, but it seems to be pretty good as far as English games go. Although it does include some Japanese games as well, it's understandably more lacking in that department (When I have a little free time, I ought to go through and add a bunch of my favorite Japanese RPGs that aren't listed like The Adventures of Horai High School & the Summon Night games).
While I'm on the topic, I thought the general purpose article they had on computer/console RPGs was pretty good - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_role-playing_game
However, I thought the specific Console RPG article was pretty bad - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Console_role-playing_game
- as it felt like the whole thing was written by someone who despised console RPGs as inferior to computer or tabletop RPGs.
