What was your first RPG?

Which game was the first RPG you ever played?

If you don't count Pokemon or Zelda as RPGs, then my first was the action-RPG Nox made by Westwood. I was too young for Diablo, but Nox was a good alternative/clone. I still haven't played either of the Diablos, but I wouldn't hesitate to play Nox again! There were 3 different classes, Warrior, Conjurer, and Wizard, and each class tweaked the storyline different ways. I fell in love with the setting, the nice music, and the tasty 2D isometric graphics. Joanna Cassidy's voice work as Hecubah was also amazing. Note that nostalgia may cloud my judgment.

So what was yours?

Icewind dale1, sure it's terrible when compared to the IWD2, but I was young and foolish so I loved it. Now I can't play it, but I still play IWD2.


Checking out seems not to do much.

KotOR was my first RPG (never knew what an RPG was before that) and I'm still trying to catch up to the veteran RPG'ers. Still so much RPG's to discover and enjoy!

KotOR for me as well. Not into RP myself, but most RPGs have infinitely superior stories to FPS nowadays.

Mine too was KOTOR. I'm more of an FPS player, but KOTOR is awesome :P

Don't know if it counts as an RPG, but the first RPG-ish game I've played was Diablo and subsequently Diablo II. After those I got Baldur's Gate II:Shadows of Amn, which was my first more traditional CRPG.

KotOR. Admittedly, I didn't *want* KotOR at the time. I wanted Battlefront 2, but I couldn't find it, and I bought the Best Of PC Star Wars pack, and so I played all the 3 FPS's that were in there, and I got bored, so I installed KotOR, and fell in love...

I played Diablo 2 when it first came out. I managed to get a level 30 pally in act 3 before being overcome by my short attention span and lack of skill playing video games that came with being 10 or 11 or whatever age I was at whenever D2 came out,

My first RPG was KotOR II, and then KotOR I. I guess that I played them a little backwards.

A very good choice. Would've been my first as well, I'm sure, except that I didn't know it existed til the Playstation 1 days (during my SNES days I was relegated to playing what was available at Blockbuster). I'd have loved to play it on original SNES.

I remember the first time I beat it it froze during the cutscene and I had to do it over. I was so mad.

Way to think to inside the box! I forgot about pencil and paper RPGs. I got my first D&D game about 2 years before Wizardry.

As far as I can remember it was Baldur's Gate. Damn good game and I'm glad I played it because it really got me interested in RPGs.

Dungeons of Daggorath in 1982 ... actually, in the end probably more of an FPS than RP. But I was 9 years old. *chuckle*

I didn't start tabletop RPing 'til I was in high school with Middle-Earth Role Playing and D&D of course...

So, the first CRPG I played is probably Divine Divinity, a really, really decent top-down 2-D RP. I found it in a $9.99 bin at a drug store and figured my old beastie of a computer could handle it.

That was two years ago. So, that makes me a n0ob and an old fart all at once...

I think the first RPG game I played was Star Wars: Galaxies. Interestingly, my tolerance of the combat in SWG (at the time) was what convinced me to pick up the KOTOR series.
