[This is a repost, as my server died this week.]

Despite my earlier and unfounded skepticism, Matt Barton of the blog Armchair Arcade has posted the second of a series about the origins and history of the computer RPG. It’s currently up on Gamasutra, but he’ll be posting it on his own blog in a few weeks.

This installment features games from the time period that he calls the Golden Age of CRPGs: 1984-1993.

Just as tasty as part 1.

Curse you, Van Verth, for bringing this to our attention! Now I’m useless, awash in the memories of a summer long-past that was lost to Champions of Krynn…
