The first Final Fantasy on the NES.

I remember spotting it in the bargain bin at a Revco drug store. I'd never heard of it before but I loved swords and fantasy stuff so it was the top pick for my usual, "please, mom, buy this for me, please, I really want it and I'll never ask you for anything else ever again," routine. She was trapped in line at the prescription counter and I guess I wore her down. I think it was super cheap but, still, it was rare for her to give in.

I had no idea how important a win that was for me at the time.

Damn, that game was hard for me back then but I still fell in love with it. I used to just stare at the awesome map that came with it. I still have that map, along with the original box. It was my treasure. Oddly enough, my clearest memory from the game was getting curb-stomped by that random mecha who dropped Nuke on your head. Perhaps my first "WTF" gaming moment.

Final Fantasy 4 and Pokemon Red around the same time.

Whoops, misread the question. First JRPG I ever played was Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, followed by Pokemon Blue. First WRPG I ever played was KOTOR.


I rented the thing, lol rented, and had three days to finish the thing. I got stuck in the cave with the tombstones and the spirit puzzle.

Several years later I bought the game and, now no longer a kid, I owned the game like nothing. Still it has some nice puzzles. :)

Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

The first RPG I played was a demo for The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past in a shop. At the time I was too young to comprehend what it was all about and I had a Mega Drive anyway so that was a solitary experience. The only thing I did in those short 5 minutes was basically pluck grass out of the ground which I found stupid and boring. Ahaha!

If Zelda: LttP isn't considered a RPG, then it would have to be Pokémon Blue and later Gold, but never finished them. They were my brother's and the repetitive nature of the gameplay threw me off.

So the first proper RPG that I played and completed (and had been anticipating it enormously since I first watched it on TV in a show about videogames) was the one in my avatar picture, Shining the Holy Ark, for the SEGA Saturn. Even though I was already a gamer before that, that was the game that cemented my love for gaming and showed me how deep, engrossing, involving and fun games could be. Especially when they had a story to tell, incredible scenarios in which to tell it and amazingly interesting characters through which to tell it, along with rich and satisfying gameplay. Forever in my heart, Camelot Software Planning!

It isn't.
