Strategy RPG games like the Fire Emblem series are my favorites. You control an army of units ranging from axe-wielding soldier types to lance wielding horse riders and even an assassin unit. it's a pretty fun series. my most favorite would probably have to be Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones for Game Boy Advanced. that's just what i think is a good series....
Is it wrong that I looked at this thread and hoped it would be about Dungeons and Dragons, WFRP, World of Darkness or L5R? Oh well, looks like you all like the computer games. Personally prefer the tabletop variety.

Old School RPGs... Hmm... I'd have to say the best retro RPG would have to be Secret of Mana. That's an instant classic as soon as you pick up the controller. There isn't a dull point in that game and the battles are real-time instead of turn-based. The boss battles are uber fun and the story will have you glued to your television until you beat the damn game! LOL. Another good classic is Illusion of Gaia. I've never beaten it, but it's a great game to play when you have the free time and a SNES. ^_^
Next-Gen (Dreamcast included), I'd have to say Grandia II for the Dreamcast. That game rocks! The battle system is very unique. It's turn-based, but almost looks as if you're in real-time. The magic used in the game looks beautiful and the plot is very well written.
Another good one: FFX!!! Best Final Fantasy EVER!! Well at least until I beat FFXII, LOL. FFX has got to be one of the most beautiful games ever made by Squeenix!
The Tales games and Kingdom Hearts Series are indeed among the best, but I'd have to say that the RPG games or sometimes they're even called "strategy" or "SuperRPG" are the games of Nippon Ichi Software.
It's pretty amazing. The highest level is 9999, you can customize weapons with other 50 skills and create your own characters in a class level your weapons up to 100+ and it takes at least three playthroughs to get everything in the entire game. I've played over 200 hours on each of them. Haha. I've got no life. But seriously speaking, they're on a completely higher level than others, and they keep getting better as time passes.
