My first RPG was the first real RPG for ANY console... Dragon Warrior (Quest) for the NES... One of the best games ever as well because back then they couldn't just wow the audience with graphics, they actually needed a plot and such...

04-09-2002, 04:04 PM
legend of zelda for the NES. crazy game.

My first RPG ever was Shining Force 2 for the good old Sega Megadrive (or Genesis, whatever the feck it was called.) The game got me completely addicted to the genre, with a great storyline, good characters and an easy to understand battle system. I still play it on occasion... Excuse me whilst I go kick the last boss' arse again....

04-09-2002, 10:28 PM
My first was Zelda: Link to the Past.


04-09-2002, 10:31 PM

Chrono Trigger!!

05-30-2007, 07:46 AM
Earthbound (SNES). Great game but a little tough for one who never played an RPG before in his life.

05-30-2007, 09:04 AM
chrono cross

greatest rpg ever

greatest music

greatest story

greatest character

greatest of all

05-30-2007, 09:24 AM
I've said it a thousand times before, and I'll say it again.

Final Fantasy III for the SNES (FFVI) was my first RPG ever. And one of those I'm actually still playing.

05-30-2007, 01:33 PM
Chrono Trigger!!

Fuck you for reviving this five year old thread.

05-31-2007, 01:50 AM

Cosmic Fantasy 2 for the Turbo Grafx CD. I suppose I could say Zelda, but, I don't recall really being into it at the time. .......I might've played Ys 3 for Turbo CD 1st though, can't totally recall. But CF2 is a real rpg.

06-25-2007, 03:52 PM
Are you fucking morons for real? there already is a topic for this on the first fucking page, post in that one, whoever revived this should burn in hell.

06-25-2007, 03:52 PM
Pokemon Yellow, if that is defined as an RPG.

Also, Zelda is an adventure game, not an RPG.

06-27-2007, 12:07 AM
my first rpg was Beyond the Beyond for ps1

08-12-2007, 11:09 PM
I think it was pokemon red on gameboy, Best game ever! I still like it, not for the pokemon thing.. but for the great gameplay and story :)

08-12-2007, 11:49 PM
Zelda (NES)

08-13-2007, 12:26 AM
Can't remember the name. But it was an old TBRPG -esque game for my old computer.

08-16-2007, 12:02 AM
Final Fantasy VII. 97'

08-18-2007, 04:01 PM
Mario RPG was my first RPG, and I still love that title to this day. It's a great game, I love the graphics and of course the story is very good too.

Then I played FF4 and was hooked on RPG's

Earthbound for me. I absolutely hated it, though. I mean, fighting from a menu and taking turns? WTF?! I wanted to run from the left side of the screen to the right side of the screen while jumping. It wasn't until Pokemon Silver I got into RPGs, and it still remains the game I've spent the most time on.

08-20-2007, 03:35 PM
So, why revive a thread that has been dead for two months when there's another one just like it that started earlier but is still alive?

Anyways, as stated in the other thread, my first RPG is FFVI (FFIII US), which I played on my cousin's SNES clone. The whole thing blew me away and is actually what got me started on the emulation scene (greedy pig won't let me borrow the game and SNES, and my aunt refused me an SNES because I already have a Sega MegaDrive and she thought that was good enough -.- )

08-20-2007, 04:12 PM
oh well....

My first RPG (for playstation) was FF anthology in 1999 i think. Then FF8 shortly after when i got it for my birthday in September when it came out :).

This is regardless of zelda and all the other ones cuz i don't remember which was my first :D. But if you want.. Zelda was probably my first one.. Not sure which one, but probably the one that was on the OLD Nintendo's with the big cartridges.. ROFL

08-20-2007, 04:59 PM
FF8. Lol the first boss on the top of the tower was so hard. And then my bro turned it off on me.

08-30-2007, 03:51 AM
Dungeon and Dragon (Not the Advance rule set), and you had to play this using dice, a sheet of paper to mark your stats, and a Game Master.

The fun part of the game was that it was a blast in multiplayer mode.

Trance Moogle
09-06-2007, 01:01 AM
I am pretty sure my first RPG was chrono cross, my aunt gave me chrono cross and final fantasy IX for a christmas present when I was little. I ended up playing chrono cross first but ended up like final fantasy IX better.

09-06-2007, 01:32 AM
I can't remember exactly I think it was Firedragon or dragonfire or something.
and it had a character named "bow" who had the ability only to walk threw the forests on the main map. Then my next was Final fantasy 3. The chrono cross. Wizardry, Might And Magic 6,7, & 8 rocks also. If you haven't tried that game it check out

I vaguely remember playing the first Final Fantasy on the NES but the first RPG I played that I remember fully was Final Fantasy VII. After that, I found other ones that I liked more, but that one I will always remember. lol, it was the only Final Fantasy game for the playstation that I did not have to buy multiple copies of because one of the discs just decided to stop working.

I think mine was Tomba on the PS1.

Mine was either Final Fantasy VII or VIII for the PS1. Not totally sure which.

06-28-2008, 05:34 AM
I thought about it, and I used to think it was FFI or Dragon Warrior.
Actually, the first RPG I ever played was Shadowgate.

Fuck you again for being the most colossal idiot currently befouling these forums. You do not know what makes a role-playing game. If you would actually listen to people like me who know better, you might accidentally learn something, but you're obviously much too retarded for that.

07-07-2008, 06:18 PM
Either FFI (NES) or Dragon Warrior(NES), but I didn't complete FFI till much later. I feel obligated to mention Pool of Radiance (NES) which started my long-standing admiration for the Forgotten Realms campaign setting even thought I still haven't completed the friggin' thing.

tdkryu, not everyone will point this out politely, but LoZ has indeed been classified as perhaps the seminal action-adventure title of that era. Link's Awakening has more similarities to an RPG than the original LoZ.

This is like saying a stapler is more similar to an airplane than a paper clip.

It's totally true. Staplers can get modded with a jet engine and seating for at least 3 to allow airborne paper unities.

Paperclips, however, just stay the same. A lame piece of bent wire.

07-08-2008, 12:00 AM
This is like saying a stapler is more similar to an airplane than a paper clip.

Well, whatever analogy you wish, really.

It is not an RPG, yet similarities exist so I can understand the confusion. Not everyone knows what defines a proper RPG. JRPGS in particular often use the term with exceptional latitude so yes, I can understand how some gamers erroneously label a game as role-playing.

07-08-2008, 12:08 AM
doomjockey, the problem in your LoZ comparison is you named the wrong game. I believe you meant to say Link's Adventure.

07-08-2008, 12:15 AM
Wtf is up with me. You're right. The second one, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is exactly what I meant. That's more similar to an RPG than the classic LoZ games.

I think the Snes game was called "Mystic Quest Adventures". The GB-game was released as "Final Fantasy Adventures" in the US and in Europe it was called just "Mystic Quest".
I dont know why Square took different names for the same game. ^.^

nope. aside from zelda 2, no other zelda game is an rpg.

i think my first rpg ever was dragon warrior for the nes.
back then i didnt knew WTF was an rpg so i just kept encountering these monsters and killing them, and i moved more and more away from tantegel castle at level 1 and BAM! i find this big ass scorpion and kills me in one hit.
i was pretty shocked.

i when i was 4 11 years ago
still stuck and playing

10-26-2008, 05:05 PM
Breath of Fire IV, eleven years ago? That math is off. Unless I can't trust my memory, Wikipedia, or IGN, the game came out in 2000ish. You sure you aren't thinking of another one?

10-27-2008, 11:27 PM
The first RPG I played was Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. Though, that wasn't the RPG that got me into playing other RPGs. That was Wild Arms: 2nd Ignition. Ah, how I love those games dearly...

EDIT: The first RPG I ever ~saw~ was Starocean: The Second Story, sorry wasn't sure if "saw" counts as my first RPG. Anyways both those RPGs are better than most FF so I suggets them to anyone that isnt obsessed with graphics and moreso on story and gameplay.

11-30-2008, 11:12 PM
...I think mine waz Diablo, great rpg:D

well my first RPG game was Suikoden II

Final Fantasy VII, when I was ten and it first came out. Literally didn't know what the fuck was going on, had to put it down for a couple of months in lieu of twisted metal, crash bandicoot, etc. Then went back, played and...hooked.


Also, the first time a commercial hooked me for a game too.

12-20-2008, 07:05 PM
either pokemon silver or Phantasy Star Online.... i dont remember which one was first lol
