Not really an rpg, more dungeon crawler, but the first wizardry on the commodore 64 (Gee... I'm getting old).

My absolute first was Super Mario RPG. My dad didn't want me playing it cause he was worried I'd overwrite his save file, but one time when he went to work I played it anyway. Ended up beating it before him, and his save file remained fully intact.

Awesome, I have never played a Nintendo product when I was a child. It only touched Nintendo during the 3DS era and even then it only played monster hunters

Final Fantasy 4. (back when the cartridge would say FF2 lmao)
Which was also one of my first videogames ever. I think I was like 4 or something. Been a favourite game of mine ever since (not too fond of the sequels tho).

And while not the firsts, Chrono Trigger and FF6 came soonafter and I loved them to death as well.

FFVII or Pokemon Blue if it counts. There might have been something before them but I don't remember them.

pokemon blue, well only for a short while. I remembered being too stupid to figure out how to play pokemon blue(i never bothered with the text, all i wanted was to get a pikachu immediately like in the anime) that my under-trained starter lost to a random encounter and blacked out in the 1st forest. No other pokemon, just my barely trained charmander... I was a kid who gets easily scared at anything back then so the black screen freaked me out so badly i never touched the game again. Not that it was enough to turn me away from pokemon and any other games that freaked me out as a kid. Ruby and BW ended up being one of my fave gens and I gotten better at being a pokemon trainer lol.

Super Mario RPG. It somehow made me enjoy all sort of RPG because I'd press a button thinking it would give me more damage for games like Pokemon.

That I can recall, the Dungeons & Dragons game for the NES (not sure of the exact name), back in the late 80s someplace. Don't remember where or how, but I remember the music and gameplay though.

Phantasy Star on Master System. I loved it and quite enjoyed the PS2 remake. It's time SEGA remembers the original games and green light PS V.

Final Fantasy VI on the SNES was the first traditional RPG I played, back in a time where I didn't know any english and thus didn't know what was going on past the little indications of emotion that the little pixel sprites did every now and then.

It was actually one of the RPG Maker XP game posted in a Thai forum, a short and nice adventure game of the protagonist fighting the evil. Since then, RPG (and 8-bit to an extent) has always fascinated me.

Pokemon Gold because Stadium 1 doesn't exactly count. I remember grinding the Elite Four over and over again to get my Feraligatr to Lv. 100. Not exactly sure why I bothered, but I guess that could be part of the reason why I grind Gen 2 solo runs.

Do you guys think it's better to have all members in your team from the beginning (then you can pick who battles) or you gain team members as the story goes?
