The Origin of NPCs

NPCs have a long history in video games, dating back to the earliest tabletop role-playing games, like Dungeons & Dragons. In these games, the game master (GM) controlled the non-player characters to help animate the story and interact with the players. With the advent of video role-playing games and the evolution of technology, NPCs have become central elements of many game genres, like RPGs, MMORPGs, and adventure games. Today, NPCs continue to play a crucial role in the experience of Twitch streamers and gamers, enriching virtual worlds and offering diverse and engaging interactions.
