My first RPG was Super Mario RPG. This was when I sucked at RPGs. Couldn't even beat the Hammer Bros... Now I can play through it in my sleep.
Anyway, I started playing more RPGs and became a fan, also gradually got better. There was a topic about Persona 3 on a forum I regularly go to and I decided to try it. Loved it. Then I went on to get Persona 4 when it came out.
Xbox Live Gamertag: Haseo8 PSN: Zichiker(made it years ago, which is why the name is terrible)
Might be showing my age a bit but Dragon Warrior/Quest 1 on the NES. I was terrible at it of course being only like 7 at the time. But it was great. Didn't play another rpg until final fantasy 2/4. By then I understood the concepts and fell in love with the genre.

One of those basic graphic dungeon crawlers off a freeware disc back in 1994. Can't even remember the name. A demo of Elder Scrolls: Arena sticks out in my mind too.
First RPG that I remember playing well ? Castle of the Winds. Though it may have been WarWizard or Aethra Chronicles. I don't remember what order I played those in. Would have been somewhere between 94 and 98, I also played Dark Sun Shattered Lands and Wake of the Ravager somewhere late in the latter half of that period.
There was a NES at my grandparents house around 93, but that didn't give much opportunity for the kind of time you'd have to put into an RPG so I never used it for that, I did mess around with Legend of Zelda but yeah, time.
My first "console" RPG was Pokemon in 98, got a Gameboy Pocket just for it. Though I'd played it on an emulator before.
Started proper console RPG gaming with the PS2 in 2003, first RPG I played there was Final Fantast X. I'd played FFVIII on the PC around 2000, so it wasn't my introduction to Final Fantasy.
