FFVII, self explanatory...
World of Warcraft, lore, deep skill cap, and just being a massive game (on all fronts...)
Tales of the Abyss, one of the most polished tales game out there.
Tales of Vesperia, same as above.
Xenosaga series, I loved them all, especially 2 (seems odd isn't?)

FF7
Lufia 2, this game has everything you need for a great game, it was the best rpg until FF7 was released. I still play it and enjoy it now.

Well, hell, I've been out of the loop too long to put together a real list of favorite RPGs, so I'm just going to throw out a favorite that I think deserves a mention here:

Jade Empire.  The battle system was pretty deep for an action RPG, you had plenty of opportunities to talk to the different characters and flesh out their own personality (along with developing that of your own character), and the game was one of the most beautiful of the last generation.  But what impressed me most of all was the world building, from the 'elder' language created for the game to the various pieces of lore you could read, to side quests and architecture aimed at leaving you immersed.  I haven't played this game in several years, but it still sticks in my head from time to time, and I think it's BioWare's most underrated work.

I'm pretty sure I posted in this thread a ways back, but I've play some more titles since then, so I'll post again.

In no particular order:
1.FFVI
2.Suikoden II
3.Persona 2 (Both Innocent Sin(thanks to the translation patch,)&Eternal Punishment.)
4.Arc the Lad II.
5.Dragonquest V (DS)
6.Exit Fate
7.Last Scenario

Some info on those last two; firstly, they are possibly my least favorite of all my favorites, but I still count them on the list. Secondly, these are both freeware titles, made by the same guy. Naturally, the production values can't compare to commercial games, but the titles themselves underneath all that; I thought they were rather good, containing everything that draws me to the genre, and doing it well. Exit Fate in particular is a Suikoden homage, (more-so of II,) and even uses tilesets from and has a similar spriteset to it, so you can see why I'm fond of that one.

Oh, and 8. The Laxius Force Trilogy. Independent RPG's made with RPGMaker; read the reviews here if you're interested. Like those last two, it's the least of my favorites, but I really like it/them anyways, despite production values even lower than Last Scenario.

Honorable Mention: Chrono Cross. For a while, it did seem like would end up being something real nice, but it ultimately turned into a mess by the end.

And finally, while I'm far from finished with Legends of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, it may well end up being one of my top favorites.

1) Super Mario RPG (It's because of this game that I love RPGs)
2) Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (Worlds are awesome, gameplay is smooth and fun)
3) Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story (I like a good light-hearted game sometimes)
4) Illusion of Gaia (Just discovered this one, it's really awesome)
5) Ys Seven (Didn't think a A-RPG could be this good. The dungeons are sooooo good)
6) Dragon Warrior (1) (It isn't really good, really, but it's the first RPG I tried.)

Let's see... justification is a little hard since I don't feel like paragraphs for each game. I'll just mention a few things I think were truly awesome about each:

Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter - Challenge / game play, plot / characters, atmosphere.
Final Fantasy VI - art direction, score, plot / characters.
Final Fantasy XII - Game play, art direction, voice acting.
Saga Frontier 2 - Art direction, score, plot.
Persona 4 - Challenge / game play, plot / characters, voice acting.
Vagrant Story - Challenge / game play, plot, atmosphere.

I've trimmed this a lot. I'm a little dismayed so many non Squaresoft (Western in particular) games didn't make it past the cut (because there's a lot of really good one), but that's the way it goes.

1) SMT Nocturne. (Everything.)
2) Chrono Trigger (Being the first RPG I really loved, and the only one I've beaten 20+ times)
2) FFVI (Being the first FF I really loved, enjoyed everything about it - music, characters, blah blah)
3) Digital Devil Saga 1&2. (You got to devour your enemies.)
4) Shadow Hearts (Atmosphere & battles)

Honorable mention to various Fire Emblems for character development and interaction (like the support system). Xenogears for awesome music even if the themes are a bit pretentious in retrospect, but I still have great memories. The Persona games rank up there somewhere too. I'm just too lazy to rank them all.
