WorldofWarcraftComputer and console role playing games have been a very important part of my geek upbringing.  I can quote many of life’s great lessons from various games ranging from Diablo to Morrowind.  There is a very well done series of articles broken into three logical sections over at gamasutra, by Matt Barton that go to great lengths to examine the history of computer role-playing games.  I highly recommend the complete series but I will warn you they are very meaty and will take some effort to get through.

Part 1: The Early Years

Part 2: The Golden Age

Part 3: The Platinum and Modern Age
