NPC & AI Questions & Answers

The term NPC stands for non playable character. It is used to refer to characters in a video game that are not the character you control. In an RPG, an NPC would be a character that you go to in order to get quests and purchase items from. You never play as them, they are sort of decorations that make the world feel more alive.

NPCs are controlled by artificial intelligence or AI. For your standard quest giver at a small village, there may not be a whole lot of intelligence needed, but for characters that follow you around and engage in combat, the AI needs to be far more advanced to make it seem like the character is alive and as if it is being controlled by another human.
