Diablo 1 was the first. There are various Post Mortem's regarding its game design and how it came to be. And the original game design document is available as well.

Well, not to be an over technical asshat.. Diablo actually isn't the first arpg, as that is the "broader" category it falls under. It is however the first Diablo-like, minus the -like, and it spawned it's own sub-genre

Yeah I meant ARPG and wondered if any before Diablo.

Just CRPG I had played some before such as the SSI games like the Pools of Radiance series and a Krynn series. I think the first CRPG I played was Death Knights of Krynn and I was interested in it because I liked pen and paper DnD. Some games maybe before that on Nintendo but not sure they qualify as CRPG things like Legend of Zelda in like around 1987.
