When exactly did you start playing RPGs? It's just an honest question, because I get the feeling that maybe you haven't been playing as long as some of the rest of us. I also thought I recall you saying that one of the Infinity Engine games was the first RPG you played.

I've played a lot of the games mentioned here including Dungeons of Daggorath back in the early 80s. Although I don't recall if the term action-RPG was used that far back, it certainly was at times in the mid to late 90s. Prior to then, I'd say "hack and slash" was the more popular term.
