    Must have been either Pokemon Yellow or Gothic 2. Or Deus Ex. Can't quite remember.

    Don't worry Ballfondler (nice name by the way), we're in the same boat here. :D

    Not really sure if it counts but the closest, and first, and remote RPG I played was Final Fantasy XII. Still play it to this day but I'm always worried about my disc breaking. I'd like it if I had a digital version for my PC but that is a long shot in the void. Might have to see if I can burn it to other discs.

    Otherwise I'd doubt that Risk, board game, would count. Always get butterflies in my belly when I start in Germany and conquer the world. :bow:

    Voodoo Castle for Commodore 64, did not get far though as I was 7, I think all I could figure out was getting the box of matches. Not sure if that would be considered rpg though, seems like everything is an rpg now-a-days.

    Final Fantasy 8- it was one of the first games I remember playing too. It's still looks pretty good, even for a game that's nearly 20 years old

    Can' remember actual first. But the first I remember playing is Shadowrun on Sega Genesis. Funny that this game appeared to be better than 1st Fallout back then. Shadowrun had all I like in RPGs now - the actual rp system defining my character, atmosphere, freedom. It had some of the BEST 'radiant quest' design I've ever encountered back then. From fetch quests and shoot some goons to infiltration into the corporation office where you must plan your approach. Conversations through future skype was also fun and useful. Companion system was as ingenious as simple - you had direct control of the mercenary you hire when you need him. Still love it.

    Secret of Evermore on the SNES, and still holds up as one of my favourites to this day. Especially the amazing soundtrack courtesy of Jeremy Soule (was actually his first ever game soundtrack, and personally I think it's still one of – maybe even THE – best).

    Dragon Quest IX. Too bad that when i look back, i realise that:
    1. JRPG, lotsa grindin'
    2. Purchased it late, so i missed 20% of the free DLC content and never git into co op.

    Besides of that, fond memories a plenty.

    Do Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Paper Mario, or Final Fantasy VI count?

    If not then unfortunately my first actual RPG was Oblivion.

    I'd say it counts, but, tbh, oblivion is ok.

    I might have played some RPG's way before this but the first ones i remeber must have been Fallout 2/Final Fantasy 9/Deus Ex. I only remember the great games i played back in the 90's/early 2000 so i might have forgotten queite a few bad ones.

    R.I.P :salute:

    KOTOR 2. I wasn't very good at it at the time, I couldn't make it out of Peragus. Then it was Oblivion, I think. The levelling system was rubbish, but I loved Oblivion.

    For me it was Baldur's Gate 2 without the expansion. It was the multi-CD version and it is the instigator of my current RPG addiction. After losing the discs I was fortunate to find a boxed-set for sale which included all the Baldur's Gate games plus expansions, all the Icewind Dale games plus their expansions AND Neverwinter Nights 1 and it's expansions. Still have that, but I now have GOG versions for most of these games as well as the brilliant Planescape: Torment, which I had only been able to play recently and still haven't finished, unfortunately.

    I think Arcanum. And if not Arcanum, probably some DOS game I've forgotten about.

    Come to think of it, there was this Lord of the Rings RPG that I mindlessly wandered around in (I was probably like 4). Not sure if I'd consider that really playing it, though.
