    Well you gotta start somewhere. Not really a bad start though.

    Just joking around. Did you proceed with Fallout 1 & 2 after that?

    Does Diablo count as a RPG? Well in that case that was my first. The first real RPG must have been Arcanum. After that I got taste for more and Fallout and Baldur's Gate soon followed, along with their sequels.

    Maybe if you dont know any better. If you had never played an rpg I'm sure fallout 3 was mindblowing at the time. But even within the Arpg Subgenre it doesnt exactly hold up to a lot of other games.

    Also not my first rpg but I want to take this opportunity to give Yakuza 7 my complete seal of approval as the first JRPG to properly kindle a love for its genre in me. Ive had an outsider's appreciation for JRPGS for a while now and I've had tons of JRPGs and most of em kind of leave me feeling meh with the combat and I don't finish em. Yakuza 7, being a part of a series I love, made me stick with it until I fully understood and appreciated a JRPG combat system. I'll probably go through and play some others I've had for a while now.

    Calling Fallout 3 an RPG is, I think an insult to RPGs.

    Edit*

    And an affront to shooters because it is doing neither of them justice.

    My first RPG was the original Dragon Warrior game on the NES, and my first JRPG. Getting two birds stoned at once.

    My first rpg was the first Suikoden game. I remember being hyped and excited playing it after my Dad gifted me a PS1 back in 1997. :smug:

    Also, Frontier was a pretty cool one, and there was some game called Marketh or something that was in 8bit style, and it was about you getting possessed by an alien that called itself an angel so you would understand, and it was on a high fantasy world. It was pretty cool.

    Remember The Last Stand Union City? I personally enjoyed it, maybe I didn't know any better in 2011.

    Loved Last Stand 2 it was probably my favorite flash game, hated Union City. Guess I didn't give it much of a chance.

    Calling you an authority on the matter would be an insult to dust mites

    My first RPG was Skyrim, I think. After seeing hbomberguy's Fallout 3 video which is literally this site in one video (not a bad thing, I agree!) I got a PC and played New Vegas, than Fallout 1, and 2. Loved them all. Currently playing through Fallout 3 to form my own opinion about it. It isn't garbage per se, but... I think the best way to describe the game is that it is the single most fully realised fanfiction ever created, and it isn't even that terrible of a fanfiction. (by fanfiction standards at least) But it is severely lacking in agency over your character, a cohesive world with regional powers vying for influence, and it is way, WAY too easy to get OP. You have to really spec hard into a certain skill or perk to get to 100 in the first two Fallouts or New Vegas. In 3, by level 22 - 23 I had nearly 4 - 5 skills at 100 or 90+. Gonna finish the game and then do a review or something. It's a fascinating game to think and talk about.
