Mine was Pokémon Genesis by Thrace (dshaybusha at the time), still one of, if not the, finest hack I've ever played.

My first hack was Pokemon Quartz. Pretty awesome, as it was the only (and I think, first?) completed romhack available at the time(I think). xD

Shiny Gold was the first.

Off topic-ish rant:
I remember playing FireRed and R/S/E, then wondering if there was a GBA version of Jhoto (at the time, the NDS system had come out pretty recently). I Googled and searched, until I stumbled upon Shiny Gold (it was a GBA file not an IPS in case people were wondering). After playing it, I learned that it was a hack! I tried to then find more hacks which I could play and wound up here (back in I think 2007-ish). I made an account to download hacks and such (which is what I did lol)..

I have long since forgotten the username, password and email for that account, but recently I decided to start hacking myself (started about early November-ish last year). I played a couple of hacks again out of sheer boredom. I think they were Sienna, Genesis and Rujin adventures (if that's how you spell it?). In my time, I've played a lot of hacks, and kept my eye on some of the better ones (which have long since died off :P).

My name forum name is FBI Agent, though you can call me FBI because it's shorter.

First Hack I played was Pokemon Identity. One of the truly great and tragic Pokemon hacks...

Maybe you'll see it again soon...

I've had a few requests to make this hack an actual thing now. So I'm re-inserting the tileset into an earlier, non-corrupted file.

Let me know if you want the beta 0.5.

I'm going to go different than most, my first hack I ever played was Chaos Black by MewThree Inc. When I first found it on Cydia a while ago, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. Then I came here and realized that rom hacking has grown so much since then. If it was released today, it probably would have gone straight to the trash. No disrespect to MewThree though, rom hacking was a lot harder back then.

Touhoumon. Don't remember if it was World Link, but I think it was.

...Some parts of that game were troll areas though. Getting to Sootopolis from Mossdeep took about two weeks.

My first pokemon hack that I played was Pokemon Snakewood. It's like the oddest looking hack I've played, but I do like hacks which have a different twist to it.

Next project: Pokemon Dark Nebula?

I wouldn't say that the original Pokemon Diamond/Jade would really count as hacks rather than poor translations with the Pokemon name added, even if they were the first unofficial games I tried. The first real hack I played, though, was Pokemon Naranja.

Same here, mine was Pokemon Naranja (Orange) and Pokemon Shiny Gold. Shiny Gold was a good hack, too bad that Soul Silver were released, which kind of overshadowed it. Naranja was good, but very glitchy and unfinished =(.
