PAPERBRAIN, released in 1985, and you say this is the first commercially released for the PC? Have you forgotten about Zork? And that's only the first I know of, but it's from 1982.

The game plays but its hard for it to figure out what it wants you to write.

This was the first text based adventure game commercially released for the PC, and the namesake of the adventure game genre. Although very primitive compared to the adventure games of today, it's two word noun-verb parser was ahead of its time. It's name was changed to Colossal Cave after a trademark dispute with Atari who had previously released an action game with the same name. Worth the download if you are a fan of the history of electronic gaming, as I am.
