All of us remember the first RPG that "clicked" with us. Maybe we played a few and they didn't work, or maybe it was your first. But regardless, since you're here reading this feature, there probably is that one game that started your love affair with the genre, and if you're anything like us, you haven't looked back since.
Today, we gathered a number of our fine editors to write about their first experience with RPGs, whether it's the first one they played or the one that got its hooks in them. Our first loves start all the way back at the first major JRPG, and they go to WRPGs that pushed the boundaries of the genre, and just about everything in between.
