Final Fantasy IV... Back when we westerners all thought it was called Final Fantasy II. And then a couple years later when Final Fantasy VI came out stateside I bought it and became hooked on the genre.
Yes, seriously, the Oracle games. I never even finished it, and I got it even before my grandpa gave me a pirated copy of Pokemon Yellow (from HK). I never really even played RPGs until...I can't even remember..for all I know, it might've been P3P when I started trying to complete them o_0
My very first RPG and game is actually pokemon on gbc. my cousin brought her gbc,so I was curious and play it and it's really fun although it's in japanese. Since then I started to save my money to buy a gbc. And that's how I started to get involved with gaming.. few years later I bought gba, then nds lite, psp, and now vita... and they are all handhelds lol
Beware of the trolls, always bring Troll Spray with you. http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c395/Caitgee/Web/258Troll_spray-1-1.jpg
I had a SNES throughout my childhood but never once got an RPG on it, so until I got a Sega Saturn I finally played my first RPG Albert Odyssey: Legend of Elden, which I hold great memories to this game to this day,
