Wow, I can't believe so many people think FF pulled off so many things before anything else. Play more games, people!

Thank you! There are so many games that did so many things first.

I'm not even sure FF7 was the first full 3D RPG. I could swear there was another before it.

I'm too lazy to go back and quote, but re: first RPG to have classes - as someone already said, there was surely some old text-based or roguelike in the 70's that had classes. At the very least, we can go back to Richard Garriot's 1979 Akalabeth.

But here's a more interesting first - how about first game to have NPC's with everyday schedules? (Sleep, eat, work, etc. at certain times of in-game day.) I believe it's Ultima V, 1988.
