Maniac Mansion me thinks, I mean besides table top / board game type stuff
Lucky enough for it to be New Vegas, and coming blind. Although that's disregarding JRPGs, mainly Dragon Quest, before it.
Final Fantasy X. I played it up until the point where the final boss came up, then the disc got a scratch and I didn't manage to finish the game at all.
JRPG - Secret of Mana back in '96.
CRPG - Diablo 1 back in '98. 1st playthrough I got scared of the "Ahhh. Fresh meat." and turned off the game.
Started a new one and was thankful it didn't have the Butcher quest.
Final Fantasy 7
More of an adventure game really.
Pretty much an adventure game.
PnP: Das Schwarze Auge (Realms of Arkania) 1st Edition, Shadowrun 2nd Edition
CRPG: Wasteland, Ultima VI
Console: Final Fantasy Legend (GB) I think
Gothic 2 Demo then Gothic 1 then again Gothic 2 + Addons
If you go by tags on Steam, then FO3.
If by definition of RPG, then FO NV.
Ultima: Quest of the Avatar. First time I played it, I put it right down because the graphics where complete shit. Gave it another chance after my childhood friend raved about it. Learned that graphics can easily be overlooked with a proper RPG.
Thats not an rpg cmon. I know it's officially one on paper but... well cmon.
So yes, it is an RPG.
Sure, it's not the same kind of RPG like say... Fallout, but really the term is pretty broad.
For me, an RPG always has some form of customization, character building, item management, and things that are governed by some form of random number generator or dice roll. Pokemon fulfills these criteria to some degree in my opinion.
For me, an RPG must simply have a character, and the opportunities to decide how that character would react—that's it.
*That means that technically an RPG about a man stuck for life in a prison cell could qualify; but the requirements become less forgiving when they introduce NPCs.
Ha... Old Boy:The RPG.
I think it was Diablo on PS1 but that's not quite the rpg we talk about.
I never thought of that but it might be that my first proper rpg was Fallout 1, thank God.
Attribute points, Equipment, Spells from books and scrolls, Quests from tomes and NPCs... I think it's 'RPG' enough.
Diablo 1 is an Action RPG. So it's definitely a RPG.
I was never convinced that ActionRPG meant anything other than a variation on Gauntlet.
Back in the days, I have never even seen Diablo 1 / 2 as RPGs, up until someone said they are supposed to be RPGs.
