Forums - Gaming Discussion - What was the first RPG you ever played?

PS1. Final Fantasy VII

Around the Network

Super Mario RPG

I only bought it because Mario was on the cover. I had no idea what RPG was at the time and was surprised by the gameplay as it was not how I expected. Didn't like it at first, but gave it another go a couple of months later and enjoyed it.

PokéMon. :)

The first I remember was Dragon Quest on NES.

Maybe Super Mario RPG, maybe something else before that but I don't remember

Around the Network

Dragon Warrior for the NES. I think I got it free as some sort of promotional deal Nintendo Power was running.

Diablo on PC but never finished.

FFVII on the PS1 got me back on console gaming and JRPGs in general.

somebody help me out here. I think it was either chrono cross,are chrono trigger. I'm not sure if those are real games,but I remember it being the sequel of the other one. I was young when I played it,so my memory is hazy and I remember there being these cool magic spells,which started my love for being a mage in every dam rpg,that had that option.

Chrono Trigger came first and was on the SNES. Chrono Trigger came second and was on the PS1.
