Yes! It's one of the aspects that I miss most in 00s RPGs. To be fair, some of my favourite titles, like Morrowind or Gothic did not make extended use of this (Morrowind had those legendary artifacts whose backstories you could find in an unique book, so that was kind of cool, but I wanted so much more of that. And I guess they also had the books which also played the role of offering you localized lore background, so that was cool too.) but that was one of my favourite thing in Baldur's Gate and Planescape: Torment. Every item you picked up might have ended up being an entire story in itself.
