Which game was the first RPG you ever played?

If you don't count Pokemon or Zelda as RPGs, then my first was the action-RPG Nox made by Westwood. I was too young for Diablo, but Nox was a good alternative/clone. I still haven't played either of the Diablos, but I wouldn't hesitate to play Nox again! There were 3 different classes, Warrior, Conjurer, and Wizard, and each class tweaked the storyline different ways. I fell in love with the setting, the nice music, and the tasty 2D isometric graphics. Joanna Cassidy's voice work as Hecubah was also amazing. Note that nostalgia may cloud my judgment.

So what was yours?

Icewind dale1, sure it's terrible when compared to the IWD2, but I was young and foolish so I loved it. Now I can't play it, but I still play IWD2.

Same! :D
Gotta go round up the party at Gilgamesh's Tavern and head over to Boltac's Trading Post to get some armor and weapons. And can't forget to press E)quip or the fighters will still have AC 10. :o

Ever get a ninja in your party? I'll bet you knew about the Super-Bishop cheat.

KotOR was my first RPG (never knew what an RPG was before that) and I'm still trying to catch up to the veteran RPG'ers. Still so much RPG's to discover and enjoy! :)

KotOR for me as well. Not into RP myself, but most RPGs have infinitely superior stories to FPS nowadays.

Don't know if it counts as an RPG, but the first RPG-ish game I've played was Diablo and subsequently Diablo II. After those I got Baldur's Gate II:Shadows of Amn, which was my first more traditional CRPG.

KotOR. Admittedly, I didn't *want* KotOR at the time. I wanted Battlefront 2, but I couldn't find it, and I bought the Best Of PC Star Wars pack, and so I played all the 3 FPS's that were in there, and I got bored, so I installed KotOR, and fell in love...

I played Diablo 2 when it first came out. I managed to get a level 30 pally in act 3 before being overcome by my short attention span and lack of skill playing video games that came with being 10 or 11 or whatever age I was at whenever D2 came out,

If Zork doesn't count...

Probably D&D 3.5 (The Basic Game box set)... then AD&D 2.0...

Chrono Trigger.

[/thread]A very good choice. Would've been my first as well, I'm sure, except that I didn't know it existed til the Playstation 1 days (during my SNES days I was relegated to playing what was available at Blockbuster). I'd have loved to play it on original SNES.

I remember the first time I beat it it froze during the cutscene and I had to do it over. I was so mad. :xp:

Way to think to inside the box! :D I forgot about pencil and paper RPGs. I got my first D&D game (http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/setpages/setscans/basic12th.html) about 2 years before Wizardry.

As far as I can remember it was Baldur's Gate. Damn good game and I'm glad I played it because it really got me interested in RPGs.

Since someone said that "Zork" didn't count, I will have to change my first RPG. Hmmm...
Metal Gear The Original (Nintendo)

Final Fantasy The Original (Nintendo)

Dungeons of Daggorath in 1982 ... actually, in the end probably more of an FPS than RP. But I was 9 years old. *chuckle*

I didn't start tabletop RPing 'til I was in high school with Middle-Earth Role Playing and D&D of course...

So, the first CRPG I played is probably Divine Divinity, a really, really decent top-down 2-D RP. I found it in a $9.99 bin at a drug store and figured my old beastie of a computer could handle it.

That was two years ago. So, that makes me a n0ob and an old fart all at once...

Mine was either that one
Digimon World.

or that
Chrono Trigger.

or this one
Diablo II


If you ask me the second one, however, I'm sure it was Breath of Fire IV.

I think the first RPG game I played was Star Wars: Galaxies. Interestingly, my tolerance of the combat in SWG (at the time) was what convinced me to pick up the KOTOR series.

Mine was Pokémon Red. I chose Squirtle ;D

If that doesn't count... gosh, I can't remember. Might have been a Final Fantasy.

My first RPG? Tabletop Dungeon's and Dragons (before the Player's Handbook came out).

My first CRPG? KotOR.

Including demos, I think it would be some obscure title called Abomination something. Excluding demos, I think it should be Deus Ex. Not really sure, though. Got fuzzy memories of that era.

Kotor 1 came out before Fable came out.

Kotor 1 was released in 2003 for Xbox and 2005 for PC and Fable was released in 2004 for the Xbox while the PC version came out in 2005.

Not really sure. Something by Sierra or Sir-Tech, I think. Sidescrolling, cartoony graphics, very small characters and little plot. Oh, and a very expensive method of resurrection. That was in about 2000, tho.

Yeah, I spent about 50 hours hunting creatures and living off of skins/pelts/etc. Of course, sleeping at night in Solstheim could be a bit dangerous...

I played Zelda: Link's Awakening (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_Link%27s_Awakening) on one of those huge original Gameboys. If that doesn't count, I also played Final Fantasy Adventure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_Adventure), which was a great game and had a far, far larger world than Zelda.

My first PC RPG was... actually I'm not sure. Maybe Morrowind. Before that I had mostly played RTS games, with the very notable exception of the Descent series. <3

07-13-2008, 01:13 PM
Well, if you don't count Pokemon or Zelda (really not much of an RPG) as one. :(

I'd have to say the Paper Mario was my first RPG. That game brings back the good old days of the N64. It's sequel on the GameCube was my second RPG. :lol:

Both fantastic games and should be played by everyone!

GREAT Game!! :D

Although, my first RPG was Darklands (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darklands_%28computer_game%29).

Still one of the better rpgs too actually. If more RPGs were like this one I'd probably play more as this was back when they cared about content as compared to graphics (still irks me).

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons on the Intellivision. I think it might have been the first graphic crpg ever made. Although really, the birth of crpg was Pool of Radiance on the C64. Awesome game that set the tone for the genre...

It's sequel - Curse of the Azure Bonds - was really quite awesome as well. The entire AD&D Gold Box is in desperate need of a remake tbh.

Not all Gold Box games need to remade, such as Eye of the Beholder III: Assault on Myth Drannor and Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor
