What's the first computer game you ever played? The first RPG?

My first exposure to computer games was in 1973 when I played Moon Lander on a mainframe at the Naval Academy. The next year I played Zork on the same computer.

My first computer was an Atari 800 on which I played hundreds of hours of Zork and the Scott Adams adventures. Those were the days!

Hee hee! Oh wait, you didn't play as Bob (the blue one ) did you? Cause we'd have to match, you'd have to be Bub, and I'd be Bob. Otherwise our love would never work

First computer game I played was a Star Trek predecessor way back that an engineer friend designed on a reel to reel mainframe at work.
I also played Lunar Lander back then, heh. When they finally came out with the first pc's I played some obscure titles on my Commodore 8.
"Blast, where's my boot floppy? When is someone going to come up with the idea of ROM?" Bangs head on table. Heh, those were the days.

Well since The Relic showed up here I just gotta reply!!! [img]smile.gif[/img]

Well my first computer game was Choplifter on C-64!
My first RPG was either Mutant (a Swedish game, or Runequest canīt remember, was 17-18 years ago..)..
First CRPG was Bards Tale 2 on the 64.. Hated it, I found a dungeoun and it was dark down there, then a hellhound ate my characters..

My first computer game was Mortal Combat (I've finished it in only two days)!
My first RPG was BG. Guess I am a newbie on RPGs.
