Breath of Fire III.


Got me hooked on the genre and maintains its position as #1 on my "favorite games" list, though I'm sure it's all just because of nostalgia.

I think it was Dungeon Defenders. Probably why I'm getting so nostalgic.

First RPG I ever PLAYED was Super Mario RPG, for about 15 minutes before my dad took it back cause I was playing on his file.


First one I sat down and played to completion was Grandia, which remains to this day my all time favorite game.

I don't think it is all Nostalgia. BoFIII was a solid game.

Phantasy Star IV. It left a long-lasting impression on me and actually got me into designing my own jRPGs.

My very first RPG (as well as my first videogame ever) would be Pokemon Ruby. I still love this generation, even if it's composed of 97.8% water and the rest is trumpets.


However, the first "true" RPG Game I had was MOTHER 3. And it was insanely hard, I never finished it. And since it was in English, I never understood until I learned it. And learning English didn't help, as this game was STILL AS HARD AS MUSTACHES.


So now, allow me to warn you of a very dramatic revelation :


I've never played any of the "Dragon Quest", "Final Fantasy", "Secret of-" or "Tales of-" RPGs.


You have the right to kill me. ;-;

Paper Mario, followed by Lunar Legend.  From there, played Golden Sun and eventually got into Final Fantasy XII and the rest of that series.  Atlus' games (SMT/Persona, & Etrian Odyssey) came later.

sword of vermilion on genesis was my first console RPG. I had no idea it was considered bad but I loved it & have a soft spot for it. It got me into the genre after that. My first psx RPG was FF7 since wild arms 2 was sold out lolz. I got gobs of rpgs for genesis & psx. My ps2 library is mainly fighting & action games though lol. Very soft spot for eternal ring & Evergrace XD

Pokemon Silver was my first game period.


But I think the first RPG I played that had a really big impact on me was Golden Sun!


What an awesome game! I aspire to do a title like it some day. :)

I'm more than sure the first RPG I ever played was Pokemon Silver but Tales of Symphonia is probably the first JRPG I played while knowing I was playing a JRPG.

Pokemon Colosseum and several other pokemon games, but my first non pokemon RPG is Tales of Symphonia on the Gcube. I had a lot of Nintendo consoles growing up so I didn't play too many RPGs until later in life.

Legend of Dragoon (PSX)...

The first RPG I found interesting battle system, combo timing, tranform, deep story, item and magic system, great BGM


I found this game is so much legend!

That'd have to be Final Fantasy 9, followed shortly by Final Fantasy 5. In terms of the series as a whole, those two are my favorite.

I prefer single roommates. After a hard day, all you want is sleep. I went to bed at 12. I was awakened at 2 because of my roommate laughing and whispering and stuff with her boyfriend on the phone. I didn't want to yell at her so I had to bear that cringy lovey dovey convo for half an hour, before I got so bored that I fell asleep again.

And now I'm wondering if I only made progress in learning this engine because I was procrastinating on everything else I need to do...
