I'm pretty sure that my first RPG was Quest 64. I have been playing since the NES days, and loved the Zelda series, but I don't really count them. So yes, Quest 64.
And since I didn't have another game to compare it too then, and I'm still kind of an open-minded guy, I liked it then and I like it now. It's not unplayable, it's just bare-bones and not very complex compared to... almost any other RPG. So I'm probably one of 20 people on the site who likes the game.
Zelda wasn't and isn't an RPG anyway. The entire series is an Action Adventure game.
