Not only do I like tabletop RPGs, but I also like computer RPGs. So I really enjoyed this article:
The evolution of the RPG
I played a number of these - the Ultimas, Wizardry, Fallout, Pool of Radiance, Diablo. Not all of them by any stretch. But it's interesting to see the development of the CRPG over time.
It builds from, and up to, a bit of a Dragon Age teaser. But that's fine, it's all tied together, from Adventure and the origins of Link and the way CRPGs have tuned the elements of RPGs as they went.
Very entertaining reading.
