Almost perfect list. You just forgot to add the Xenosaga Trilogy.

And, weird... I never thought you'd like Shadow Hearts: Covenant.

Yikes, we limiting this list to five?


Disgaea: Hour of Darkness (Although Afternoon on the PSP is a superior version, if for no reason other than sleep mode on your PSP allowing you to cut up an item world.)
Shin Megami Tensei: XXXX (Select your level of difficulty:  Easy - Persona 4, Medium - Persona 3 (FES), Slightly more than Medium - Digital Devil Saga 1&2, Kick you between the legs - Nocturne)
Dark Cloud 2 (One's good too and pretty cheap)
Rogue Galaxy (If you like to GRIND...)

I really like Final Fantasy X and the Kingdom Hearts series. You should definately try the latter.

Best Turn Based RPG : Dragon Quest 8
Best Real Time RPG : Kingdom Hearts/Kingdom Hearts 2

FFX, FFX-2, FFXII (They're Final Fantasy games. You pretty much know what you're getting.)
Dark Cloud 2 (Very top notch action RPG.)
Kingdom Hearts (Personally I prefer the original over the sequel. I think they overcomplicated things a bit in the sequel.)
Dragon Quest VIII (Excellent old school RPG. Unlike everything else I've listed, this probably won't appeal to anything less than the most hardcore RPG fans.)

Surprised not to see the GTA series mentioned, yet. It's still an RPG. =)
