1st Rpg Game You Ever Played...

Recommended Posts

Final Fantasy II on the Super NES. My parents and I thought it was a weird game at first, but eventually it became something we all got hooked on. And the last time I checked, my save file was still in tact. I never managed to get the adamant ore from the Pink Puffs in that one room near the end of the game though...

I played Final Fantasy II (IV in fact) and I hated it so much!

But then fell in love (I'm still married since then) with Final Fantasy III. That was my "first" RPG.

Adventure for Atari 2600, if that doesn't count then Sword of Fargoal on C64. Again, if too simple it would have to be Dragon Warrior 1 on NES.

I remember renting Final Fantasy II (IV) when I was about 7, but I just couldn't appreciate it then because of my age and the fact that english isn't my first language and I was barely starting to learn it. So, the first RPG I really got into was probably Breath of Fire a few years later, but the first one that truly captivated me was Chrono Trigger.

I can't quite remember which was my first RPG... it was either Final Fantasy Mystic Quest on the SNES or Phantasy Star 2 on the Megadrive.

The 'proper' Final Fantasy games were never released in the UK at the time, so I wanted to snatch up anything FF related after reading so much about them in the wonderful Super Play magazine.

I bought my Phantasy Star 2 cart second hand, and it didn't come with a manual, so I found it a bit harder to get into, especially as all the spells had non intuitive names!

The first RPG I've played was Final Fantasy on the NES. Didn't really understand the essence of the story because I was quite young, but I liked it ! Dragon Warrior is a must too !

My first would have been Adventure on the 2600 back in 1980 (ugh!). Although the first true RPG would have probably been Ultima III: Exodus on the C64.

Final Fantasy for the NES. I didn't own it, but I played it at a friends. Had no idea what the hell I was doing at the time! Now, I own it for my NES and thoroughly enjoy it.

Dungeon Master on PC, in that time this game was promoted in Czech magazines as the best game ever created. And the first place in the Best games of the month chart of one magazine was repeatedly occupied by entry "Waiting for Dungeon Master II" :D One couldn't simply avoid it. Great game and my first RPG.

To be honest I don't remember what the first (video game) RPG that I played was. It had to either be Ys on the PC or some other game that I don't remember the name of that was also an old EGA PC game. My first console RPG game would have been Phantasy Star on the SMS and also the first RPG that I would have beaten. Still to this day is in my top 5 RPGs of all time if not one of the top 2.

I was not much of an RPG fan until I played Shining Force. An epic of a game, which I have played several times over the years.

Secret of Mana was the first Rpg game that I ever played.

I played it nearly every day for a couple of week's but I never managed to finish it.

Hopefully it will come out on the Virtual Console and I can have another go at finishing it.

Hmm if we're counting action/RPGs then it would be the Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

If we're not, then it would be Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (SNES).

Unfortunately, when I played FFMQ the first time, I was kind of expecting something similar to ALTTP (real-time combat) and was sorely disppointed.

SEVERAL years later (and when I was a bit wiser) I got FFMQ again and beat it :D

VERY simple RPG, minimal story, but it has KICKBUTT battle music (and pretty good music in general actually)

The first to play... Chrono Trigger, I remember I've played it one month before the US Release, It had a wonderful gameplay, even if I could't understand the text, because it was totally in English and I am a non-native english speaker, and I was just 10. Its incredible the impact that this game made on my mind.

The first to beat..., Super Mario RPG: The Legends of the Seven Stars, playerd two years later than Chrono, and, thanks to early english courses, I understood almost all the story ;)

Thanks Square!
