    Did Zelda basically create RPGs?

    Sorry if this topic is completely stupid, but I've recently heard that Zelda was basically the first, or the first major RPG. Is that true? Just wondering.

    Yea, definitly one of the first MAJOR Rpgs if not first. They definitly started the major franchise in my eyes tho.

    euhm, no. there were tons of rpg's before the first zelda, on pc.
    Weren't there text-based rpg's in the '70s on computers with the graphical capability of just a few lines of text?

    It did start a major zelda franchise

    The Ultima series got started in 1980, many years before Zelda. That was definitely a major series.

    I dont think that Zelda created RPGs but they did help to create the world of RPGs i think that the Final Fantasy games pretty much created RPG.

    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.
