RPG:

I'd like to say Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Non-RPG:

Red Dead Redemption.

Spec Ops: The Line?

Back when it came out I was fairly impressed with Spec Ops: The Line, but later I noticed that the game was praised for doing stuff that MGS1 and 2 did more than a decade ago and it got shit for doing so.

For non-RPG. . . *shrug*
Everything that comes to mind would be "mature" in the generic ratings way; blood and tits.
The Metal Gear Solids touch on some mature themes. . . but they're also hard to take seriously.

The games know how to have fun with their own universe, that doesn't diminishes the mature themes the series touches upon.

Confession time.
The only MGS game I've ever played is the bad one on the NES.

lol~

At least that version of Metal Gear made the name of the series known in the West by selling a decent amount of copies in its time.

Surprised Shadow Hearts hasn't been mentioned. Joachim and To the New World excluded.

What the hell is mature mean, anyway? Are we just talking about whatever stereotypical adult themes are, and the level of tact with which they're handled?

For non-RPGs I want to say The Sea Will Claim Everything or Photopia -- especially Sea; Photopia's arguably a bit too emotionally manipulative -- but these are both barely games.

Although if I wanted to pick a game that had themes that, like, grew with me? Maybe Earthbound for the RPG?
