So in celebration of Hobbit Day, I thought it would be fun to use my own expertise in games and delve into the influence Tolkien has had on the fantasy game genre. Specifically, I want to trace the history and inspiration of hobbits through games. Their progenitor might include halflings and any other variety of short-statured fantasy race.
Specifically, I am interested in what ways their features change over time and what role they play in both the role and the gameplay of the games in which they live. Do you have any favorite "versions of hobbits" in games? Have any input on the idea? Let me know by leaving a comment or a message on my talk page!
