I'd say mine first was adventure games like from sierra and lucasarts. I learned to type fast from playing those and then it was the mouse only adventure games. I'd rather play a game if they still made em like Good old Indiana jones and the fate of Atlantis, heroes quest: so you want to be a hero or monkey island any day over these modern fps piles of shit.
Baldur Gate series. Think that was Dark isle. Haven't played in years. * Searching Amazon *
Edit: Gonna kill Drizzit first thing.
