RPG elements: Zelda 1 & 2.
First actual RPG: Dragon Warrior on NES. I only recall not having a damn clue how to do anything since I was really young at the time.
First RPG played through entirely: Super Mario RPG, and I credit it as being what got me into the genre.

yup, FF7. Still love that game. Someone on the first page mentioned that they thought the game was over after the motorcycle scene. I thought the same thing! I had never played an rpg before and when I discovered there was a whole world map I was blown away.
Would you strongly disagree, slightly disagree, or only disagree with this sentence?

Super Mario RPG was the first.

Final Fantasy VII was the second.

Depends on how you want to count it. My real "first" was probably one of the Phantasy Stars and/or a Shining game. I had the Sega Channel on the Genesis, so I played a lot of stuff I wasn't very familiar with. The only reason I remember now what they were called is because I recognized them discovering them later. I didn't even know they were were referred to as RPGs, or what that acronym stood for.

Anyway, you couldn't save on Sega Channel, so I never got very far. The first time I heard what "that kind of game was called" was with Super Mario RPG. I rented it from blockbuster and had no idea why it was called RPG. I soon discovered it was like those Sega Channel games I had been playing (and was a little sad because it wasn't the game I wanted it to be).

I didn't really "get into" RPGs as a genre until Pokemon got me more familiar with the actual concepts and Dragon Warrior (the remakes on the GBC) got me interested in the more traditional RPGs. I then went exploring for the old school RPGs (I actually played Final Fantasy I for the NES before any of the PSX games, despite discovering the genre just a few years after FFVII came out) and started getting the newer ones as well.

Pokemon.......but Legend of Dragoon is truly the one that captivated me and made me the RPG loving gamer I am today.
