when I was younger, I just watched my brother play a lot on the Ps1 and he would occasionally hand me the controller.

First rpg i played and beat on my own was Thousand Arms. I really enjoyed its fantastic dialogue and VA. It's also very funny. Did anyone play this too?

The first RPG I ever played was Dragon Warrior on the NES. At the time I didn't know what to do.

It was until Phantasy Star IV, Final Fantasy 6 (III on the SNES at the time), and Chrono Trigger did I really start to enjoy the genre and understand the combat mechanics.
A fan is confident in the game they prefer being able to stand on its own merits.
A fanatic attacks the opposing game showing insecurity in the game they like.

Yeah I loved my good old C64 - had so many games for that there are probably loads of RPGs that I had but can no longer remember - not even going to count the old read'n'type adventures from the early PCs either (mainly 'cos I can not remember any of their names) as I am not sure they are what most would class as RPGs.

I held on to the C64 for ages and skipped the NES/Master system era so had to play all those early RPGs on the emulators much later.


I loved that C64 as well. I can't recall the names of the games I had (but I know some of them were really bad) or other games I played on other older PCs. I skipped the entire Sega console line but stayed into Nintendo (but still played very few RPGs that weren't Zelda-ish).

I have many oldies to play through goodoldgames and emulators. I still have yet to play some of the other Gold Box games - how many did you get a chance to try out if I may ask?

What I can't remember is the first turn-based RPG I played.

First RPG for me? The first Dragon Warrior, although now I'm more of a Final Fantasy person, though I still do love the DW/Q series.

Man, I was so young when it came out, comparatively. I guess only third grade or so.

Either Final Fantasy Legend or Dragon Warrior 1. Can't remember. The first time I got obsessed with an RPG was with Earthbound though.
Great job!

+1 for Earthbound mention. I made friends back then who hated RPGs fans of that game.

Retsupurae on Earnest Evans, a wacky game!

It was an NES game. I'm just not sure if it was Dragon Warrior, Ultima, or Final Fantasy
I was going to procrastinate today, but decided to put it off until tomorrow.
