A collection of images and wallpapers featuring RPG games or role playing games. Computer RPG’s were a digital representation of the pen and paper games that became popular in the 1970’s such as Dungeons and Dragons. They are typically adventure games that follow certain complex rules as to how the game world works and how the player avatar responds to those rules. They offer a greater depth and choice to the gameplay than a typical arcade game and you must often make difficult decisions for your character or characters to make progress in the game. The earliest recognised computer RPG is thought to be Rogue. It was developed on mainframe computers in 1970’s and featured ASCII graphics to represent the game world.
In the early days of video gaming the genre was confined to powerful computers with a save functionality because saving progress was essential. Games such as Ultima and the Bard’s Tale were some of the first to appear. Due to the save requirement RPGs did not appear in the arcades. As technology has advanced and consoles with a save function have become the norm and not the exception, the RPG genre broadened considerably. It now often has various features that crossover into many other game genres such as first person shooters and strategy games. Almost all games nowadays have some sort of rpg-like element such as the player character gaining experience and abilities as the game advances, or a character having interaction options when talking to a non player character. The ability to improve a character and make significant choices as a game progresses makes the game more immersive. It gives the player a greater connection and investment in their gaming avatar.
