Of course, I posted this in the old episode comments too late. I’ll repost here for convenience. You kind of touched upon it, but didn’t exactly answer it, heh:
What’s the oldest console or computer RPG that you’ve played? Are you curious about playing some of the oldest games that are still playable? Near as I can tell, the oldest surviving RPG is The Dungeon/pedit5, a game created for the PLATO computer system back in 1975. I shouldn’t be surprised, but it’s amazing that soon after D&D came out, people were trying to use computers to simulate it.
I ask because my curiosity got the best of me and I finally played Akalabeth. I wouldn’t call it good, but it was entertaining figuring out how to use an exploit to get through it as quickly as possible.
Never fear! We got to this one just the other day, but it hasn’t been posted yet.
