Older Than the NES

aka: Older Than NES
Here are The Oldest Ones in the Book for Video Games. The NES's US introduction in October 1985 marked the beginning of the end of The Great Video Game Crash of 1983 and the beginning of The 8-bit Era of Console Video Games, and we have chosen it as a cutoff date for The Oldest Ones in the Book of Video Game Tropes.note 

A good number of the RPG tropes can be found here, since these games trace their roots pretty much directly back to Tabletop RPGs such as Dungeons & Dragons, which were among the first commercial games to be ported over to a video game system.
