    Hmmmmm, I believe it was Pokemon Silver, it was either that or Super Mario RPG: Legend of The Seven Stars, both amazing games

    Dragon Warrior A.K.A. Dragon Quest. The first one. I'm still terrified of crossing bridges to this day.

    Final Fantasy, the original.  I started systematically destroying all RPG's I could discover after that.

    I think my first RPG was MMO called Nexia The Kingdom of The Wind, because I got access to the internet first before my mother bought me a PSX. That is why I'd became familiar quickly with RM mapping style

    I think mine was the original Deus Ex. Not sure if I can classify any games I played prior to that as RPGs, and I was a bit of a late comer to FF.

    Might and Magic I. I had no idea what I was doing and just ran around randomly fighting monsters and trying to figure out what I was supposed to do. But, I still managed to have fun with it, so that's what matters, right?

    Vandal Hearts


    Seriously. The sight of the blood gushing out of the NPC's body when they got killed is what makes me jump into this game!


    (I saw my friend playing this game when I paid him a visit)


    Before, I was just Survival Horror player until I found this game.


    Vandal Hearts has also been the one getting me into playing and loving other RPG games ever since.


    Thanks, Vandal Hearts....

    Super Mario RPG, Final Fantasy IV, and Earthbound were among some of my first RPGs. Oh, and of course Pokemon!

    The very first RPG I've ever played was Ultima: Exodus for the NES. I have the original cart I had as a kid with the same game save still intact, even after ~20 years!

    I also still have my original PS1 memory card from 1998 that contains my original FFVII save. Good times!

    The absolute first Rpg was actually Alundra:

    [​IMG]
     

    It's the game that made me interested in Rpgs in general. I was a little kid when it was released and I remember that my best friend had this game on his PSX back then, so I used to go at his house everyday and we played it together (he was playing, I was watching and giving him hints) untill my father bought me the PSX and the game too. I didn't finish it back then though, mainly because I was a kid and very inexperienced too...some puzzles of this game were too hard for me at that time. Some of you old PSX veterans might remember it, it's a very good action Rpg that some describe as a Zelda clone (probably because they lack better references) and an awesome game overall, with a classic plot but very well made and enjoyable. After this I played the amazing Wild Arms (the first one, still for PSX) and totally became an Rpg addict.

    Castlevania Symphony of the Night... lol I remember I was so scared to play that game because when you die, blood splattered from Alucard all over the place. I was 6 when I played it.

    FFVI, took me probably years (I was pretty young) to get maybe halfway through the game, I remember to this day how amazing the Magitek Factory felt the first time.

    Also my stebdad hated it, which probably increased my like of the game.
