    In a way, it started with an old DOS game called Wasteland - which now has a permanent place on my hard drive - but I only watched my friend play it at the time, so it'd definitely be the first Dragon Warrior for me. ?Those slimes were freaky, man.

    Of course, it wasn't until Final Fantasy II (IV) came along that I was old and coherent enough to truly appreciate those funny little words-in-text-balloons that appeared to be so important in previous encounters with the genre... *coughs*

    As an addendum to my first point, the false rumor of Wasteland on the GBA made baby Jesus cry sad.gif

    Hmmm when I was 12 I laid my hands on final fantasy 3 and it was amazing. Really intriguing game that had a real story. That was like 1998 when I was in grade 7. I'm really glad I picked that game up from a garage sale. 1 dollar for that catridge.

    I first played chrono trigger when I was six(I didn't get far, because I couldn't read well). The first RPG I beat was FFVII.

    My first RPG was FFII in the US, and it was amazing. It actually gave me something entertaining to do while I was inside, and it helped me learn to read when I was younger. I don't remember ever having problems figuring out how to equip things or use potions, but I think I used to level a lot more than I do now. The more I think about it, playing RPGs definately helped me with reading while I was youger. Parents should FORCE all their kids to play RPGs!! Just kidding. Then I moved on to FFIII and Chrono Trigger, but it took me a while to get a PSX, and even longer to get a PS2. I'm just now getting into FFX (thanks to the greatest hits), along with Wild Arms 3 and Suikoden 3. laugh.gif

    I was forever scarred by playing the first Dragon Warrior when I was 5 years old. I hated it and it kept me of of RPG's for a long time.

    The RPG which started it for me was Phantasy Star 4. GOD I loved that game. It was fun, long, and its story PERFECTLY tied in all the previous games. In fact, it even included an event which was an awesome set up for the possibility for another game (no, not PS Online). Too bad they tottaly dropped the ball with PSO; pile of crap game has no right being a PS game. Anyhow, yeah, PS4 sparked the flame for me.
