The Role of Computers was a series of articles originally by Hartley and Patricia Lesser—and later including Kirk Lesser—that were published in Dragon magazine.

The column debuted in June 1986 (Dragon #110) and ended in August 1993 (Dragon #196). The column was occasional at first but became a monthly feature with issue #126. Kirk joined the writing team with issue #128. It focused on RPG and simulation computer games.

The articles had several sections. The first section was an introduction and gave updates to the article series. It was followed by a review section, which gave reviews and basic walkthroughs of 3-5 games. The next section was called Game Conversions, which would provide industry updates and news on upcoming computer games. The final section was Clue Corner, where readers would mail in hints and tips on gameplay.
