The temple of apshi was my first. I remember you got this book with the game and when you came to a room it told you what page to read. I was so young I never used to bother reading and often had no idea what I was doing. It was for our TRS-80 and had no real graphics. Not really sure you can call it a computer game by todays standards. It was more of a first attempt to move off pen and paper.
Wizardry is the first game I remember that was actually a fully graphical "dungeon" and might and magic is the first one I played where you actually moved around the world....god I hated running into sprites !

Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.- FARGIN_WAR

Pc or console? Where are we, in the kindergarten?
I'm not quite sure about my first, in the mid '80s, on C64, probably Ultima IV, Pool of Radiance, or Bard's Tale (tales of the unknow).
On PC somewhere in the early '90s EoB or Pools of Darkness (the 4th of the series).
On console... lol. I've never touched any consoles so far, except PSP because of VCS (can't help it, Vice City rocks)
AD&D for the short-lived Aquarius...hooked up to a black and white tv. Total awesomesauce.

Well if we are counting those than my first was Advanced Dungeon and Dragons for the Intellivision.
Same here. AD&D on the Intellivision was my first too. The good old days.
However I think I do remember playing Atari's Adventure too. It looks familiar but it's been so long ago and my memory has been affected by a great many of things since then.

A good friend of mine's dad worked for EDS, they had 2 Apple computers and a Beta VCR when my parents still had a black and white TV lol. He had this game and we played it ALOT on the downstairs PC in 1984.
In 1980, these 2 P&P games were hot stuff. Though we had some AD&D and MERP books, these two titles were the most fun at the time. Fun times.
He also had an Intellivision and D&D on it. I stayed up all night playing it a few times. For me personally, when I got my first PC, I bought Pool of Radiance in 1990, my first AD&D PC title. I have the Forgotten Realms Collection still in my library.
First PC Game: Pool of Radiance July 10th, 1990. First MMO: Everquest April 23, 1999
Bard's Tale, Wasteland, Dragon Wars, SSI Gold Box series, Ultima
Bard's Tale III I still have on my hard drive
This title ofcourse, was my first real MMO. I logged on for the first time March 23rd, 1999. My first billing was April 23rd, 1999 for my first Paid Sub.
On the Amiga
The first game I'd actually call an RPG by modern terms due to it having a Leveling Mechanic would be Rogue. Awesome game that I still play every once and a while.
Final Fantasy 1 for the NES, Followed by Legend of Zelda, then Crystalis, and then Legacy of the Wizard.
Rogue was the shiznit. Totally forgot about that. Yea, that was my 1st one too.

This would be my first RPG also. I remember finding the easter egg in it also, where the developer or writer or something like that hid his name in the puzzle somewhere. Let me tell you it was also scary getting chased by the black dragon.
