Fallout 3, The World Ends With You, Mass Effect, and Tale of Vesperia.

If I had a PS3 I'm sure Valkyria Chronicles would be on that list.

What I would consider 'Current Generation RPGs' are PS3, 360 and Wii games. As far as I'm concerned, portables 'advance' by generation independently of consoles. Taking that to heart, my list consists of:

Lost Odyssey
Tales of Vesperia
Fallout 3
Valkyria Chronicles
Eternal Sonata

Yes, many people hate that last one, but I think the game world is beautiful enough and the inspiration unique enough (and I find the gameplay enjoyable too) that it gets on my list.

Handhelds alone, my list looks like:
Suikoden Tierkreis
The World Ends With You
Crisis Core
Jeanne D'Arc

Neither are in any real order.

The only RPGs I've played this generation are Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Dragon Quest IV, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (if you count the last two anyway). I can't say I was particularly thrilled by any of them. I really wanted to like Radiant Dawn because it did tie up some plot holes from Path of Radiance and because it is a Fire Emblem game. But I didn't like how the narrative was structured, and, as a result of said narrative's poor structural integrity, character development (both personality and statistical) took a major hit.
Code:
The game's climax taking place at the end of part 3 didn't help much either.


I think I liked DQIV and FE:SD better in spite of their "rudimentary" narratives.

Anyway, there is a PS3 on the horizon for me, so when that comes I'll hopefully get a chance to play some I've missed out on so far.

The World Ends With You
Chrono Trigger
Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
Mass Effect
Eternal Sonata

Barring that, I guess I'd put the two Crystal Chronicles games at the top of my list
Considering how mediocre Ring of Fates was, I sure hope you mean the matching Echoes of Time games.

Anyways, I guess TWEWY deserves a mention because of sheer uniqueness. But the real tragedy is how many people are totally missing Jeanne D'Arc and Crisis Core due to lack of PSP ownership, not to mention the FF1+2 and SO1+2 remakes.

Hm, last time I played it, FF1 & FF2 didn't differ much from their previous remakes.

Missing FF2 is not a tragedy.

I missed Crisis Core due to lack of interest. I enjoyed what little I've played of Jeanne D'arc though.

I felt that between the much-improved graphics and "definitive" completeness that they were pretty worthwhile, if overpriced.

You've misunderstood me. I just seek your death only because you're in the way of my goal of world conquest. I can't help it that I have evil ambitions and am named Dark Lord. Honest.

Origins also gives much improved graphics compared to it's predecessors (i.e. the original versions of each game), but you don't have to settle for the neutered challenge that the subsequent remakes offer.

That'd be more of a blessing in the case of FFII, but yes. FF1 had it's magic system revamped to be less like D&D/FFIII and more like the rest of the series, and Origins compromised with an easier difficulty setting, better graphics, and some other modern conveniences (if your target dies before the attack goes, it'll go to another enemy instead).

Tales of Vesperia / Symphonia 2
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn

Those are like, the only RPGs I played this gen though. But SO4 is coming in the mail, and I'm playing The Last Remnant right now. I honestly do not care about most of games this time around. I do plan to get my hands on Lost Odyssey, Valkyria Chronicles, and Eternal Sonata though.......... someday.

If we are throwing handheld games into the mix though:
Castlevania: AoS / PoR / OoE
Ace Attorney games

glad to see alot of people are choosin eternal sonata. where were you people at 3 months ago when i was gettin flamed for sayin the game was a decent current-gen rpg. Now i will say as time progresses and more decent rpg's are released it probably wont make most people's current-gen top 5 list, but i see it stayin on alot of top 10s.
