From character graphics to Windows

Just a small thought: On the PC, games with character graphics and the early Windows games (3.x era) had a lot in common.

I noticed it again when I got interested in Yahtzee/Yatzy type games. There are quite a number of them for DOS, mainly from the 80s, and only a single one of them is graphic. And of course, this type of game was immensely popular on 16-bit Windows.
