Forums - Gaming Discussion - Which was your first RPG (video game) you played through?

If people count Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening as an RPG, that was my first one.

If not, Dragon Warrior Monsters 2: Cobi's Journey was a game I played through shortly after that. I'd argue it was at least on par with the early Pokemon games.

Loved it to death.  I used to spread the map on the floor and just stare at it.

With western RPGs, it was probably Daggerfall.  A terrible game, to be honest, but one that I loved because it was so ambitious and had so much potential.  It was exactly what I was looking for, as a big fan of fantasy as a kid, but the technology just wasn't ready yet.  Still, the template is the exact same as Skyrim.  It also made me feel physically sick when I played it for too long.

Also, let's not forget another classic:

Faxanadu on NES. I’d post a pic of it but I fail at posting pics on this site.

That game.  I remember writing down those long ass codes--and then writing down the wrong thing and losing a ton of progress.

Breath of fire 2

I game on all consoles and PC

It needs a remake IMO. Never got around to beating it. The later dungeons are impossible without a map. Still logged over 120 hours in it when I was a kid though.

Probably gizmos and gadgets on PC.

Maybe something on gameboy though...really not sure.

Edit: Missed the RPG part. Gotta be pokemon then I am thinking.

I guess rogue on the pc, although that became a different genre.

Not a clue, as I was probably 0-4 years old. Final Fantasy 1-4 would be a good guess though.

It was either Secret of Mana or Bahamut Lagoon.

Though I could barely read any Japanese aside from Katakana back then so I had no understanding of the Bahamut Lagoon story. But it got me interested in the tactical rpg genre, which I later came to love after Final Fantasy Tactics years later.

On PC, Might & Magic III: Isles of Terra. Dune, which mixes many genres, might also count
On consoles, Secret of Mana

Played through? As in, actually beat? That would be Pokemon Blue version.

Final Fantasy 7 would have been the first that I ever played, but I never actually beat it until a decade or two later. I kept getting stuck on that stupid harp, could never find it If it wasn't for internet guides saying where to dig for it I probably would have never beat the game.
