How many hours did it take you to make this list?

I guess one thing to bring up is each game has (at least, iirc) one censored cutscene so they're really confusing and awkward.
Besides that, the skill trees in 1 and 3 are great.

Episode 1 - pretty slow and a bit easy, mechs in battle are almost always useless, objectively mediocre I guess but I liked it overall.
Episode 2 - Kevadu put it well, it's very experimental (and difficult) like a Saga game, shit ton of sidequests, hated it the first time but replayed it as part of a marathon and thought it was great, but the voice acting and graphics are weird, also no way to buy stuff so items are rarer than in most games.
Episode 3 - the most intuitive of the games, like Hexyz Force it's super traditional but does it really damn well with a few extra mechanics, a really cool but balls hard minigame, solid difficulty, a fantastic game imo.
Xenogears - has a lot of secondary characters and subplots that get underdeveloped, chaining deathblows is a lot of fun to watch, overall a good game especially with the way shit gets real at certain parts, has a GREAT retelling/parody/thing.
If you like the stories in Tales games, you'll probably like these stories.
Xenosaga hypothetically fits into the backstory of Xenogears via the Perfect Works chronology.
@Tiamat boosts work by characters attacking to fill up a gauge, each time it fills up that character gets a chance to cut in front of an enemy.

If you have cable, you should have it, since it's on FX.
Amazon (instant video) has it too.

Drunk History is really good too, especially if you're decently into history, but it's best in short bursts.

Dunno if it was suggested but Wilfred maybe?
Laugh tracks (or real audiences in some cases) have become a thing I learn to tune out.
And if you're okay with something strictly comedy and no plot then Impractical Jokers.
Each episode is a competition with four friends trying to embarrass each other, and if they can't do certain things, they may get punished for it.
Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park
Art supplies
Fast food
Art class
Focus group
Sunglasses

edit: just thought of a few animated series.
Moral Orel is a solid dramedy about growing up in an overly religious town.
The Boondocks is a good commentary on race issues, this and Moral Orel are great if you have an aversion to South Park, but want satire.
Bob's Burgers is pretty damn quirky and fun.
Assuming late-night stuff is an option, watch Craig Ferguson if you haven't yet, and Jimmy Kimmel.

Never played these games but maybe you could check out the Heretic series?

And since Bioshock was mentioned, look at System Shock.

So what do you think makes an RPG part of this genre?
thoughts:
Code:
I've noticed that RPGs generally tend to be meatier than anything else, even most open-world games, maybe because they have a lot of substance compared to regular action games or platformers and such.
Limiting the genre to needing progression of stats and/or skills seems like it would disqualify most visual novels and graphic adventures from coverage.
"You take on a role in every game you play."
Is role playing a thing in something like Tetris?

What confuses me is why Xseed decided to go with the title "Story of Seasons" when it is, in fact, The Lost Valley that has a story about the seasons. That seems to make an already complicated situation even more confusing.

Lost Valley was announced almost a week (iirc?) after Story of Seasons, so Xseed wouldn't have known not to do that.
@Maxximum: one of my friends that likes Harvest Moon didn't know about it until a few weeks I told them a few weeks after it started (and hates Call of Duty) may have only found out about it after getting Lost Valley because of the series' name on the box.

Crimson Sea 2 (off the top of my head) for $3, it's crazy amounts of fun.

I assume this is tied to the lore of the anime bearing the same name?? If so count me in. Even if it isn't the best, it is FAR too in line with my personal tastes to ignore.

Yep, an adaptation of the first game.
some links on this are nsfw
I just noticed Sting co-developed it.
