QuickBasic (actually QBasic, and then later QuickBasic when my mom shelled out the money for me to buy it) was my first language. I remember being completely flabbergasted when I found out they packaged an interpreter with DOS, and it had been under my nose the whole time. I think my first "finished" program was a D&D character generator. Basically, just colored and formatted text with the output of 6 or so random number generations.
