If you mean a text-adventure, then the lnfocom library is your best bet. I suggest Zork, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Planetfall and Trinity. If you mean something like an old school RPG, then you should look at Dwarf Fortress.

You should check out a text based game called aardwolf. It is unlike any other text based game you have ever played. The url is below:

The blog url below will help you understand what to expect when playing aardwolf:

I heard Ultima IV was the game that changed the face of RPGs. It's available for free when you sign up for GOG.

Frog Fractions may not be a true text based game, but it has text based section. I tried when I heard about it on Giantbomb and it is hilarious. You can find that for free here: Frog Fractions | Twinbeard Studios
