Mine would be Tales of Vesperia and tales of xillia. They're both amazing.

Pokemon Diamond (Because Pokemon) and Dragon Quest ix (Because bonkers story, monsters, characters, and wordplay)
Skyrim, Dark Souls 2
Final Fantasy III/VI.
I'd have to go with Sonny 2. All newer games don't stand a chance.
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Mine would be a relatively unknown turn-based rpg called Dokapon Kingdom. The name makes it sound bad, but you can't judge a book by it's cover.
Dishonored and Fable, can't decide between them.
Dishonored - Even if it was quite short, it's still my favorite RPG. It simply is one of my favorites because the main character, Corvo Attano, is such a well done and a guy full of mysteries that you simply fall in love with him.
Fable - The first one, The Lost Chapters.. I think there wasn't other game that I played so many times. I literally finished it 14 times. 14! And I still feel the urge to play it. What got me? The story and the way it twists and the main villain, Jack of Blades. How can you not like that guy?
Baulders Gate 2, easily.
I've played a ton of RPG's over the years.
My favorites would have to be Lunar and Lunar 2, the Bard's Tale Trilogy, Final Fantasy 1, 4, 6, and the Shining series (Shining in the Darkness, Shining Force 1, 2, 3, Shining the Holy Ark, Shining Tears, Shining Force Neo, etc.).
Although a lot of good RPG's were mentioned in this thread, I'd like to point out that other than Zelda 2 : The Adventures of Link, no Legend of Zelda game is an RPG.
Dark Souls 1 & 2. It has a very detailed storyline, and the characters feel real, immersing you inside the world of the game.
Shining Soul 2, I think.
I played through Earthbound recently, and it amazes me that such a great game hasn't been remade yet. 3DS version now!
Earthbound, Chrono trigger, pokemon (any), Mario and Green guy: Superstar saga, and FFX.
Earthbound - Deep story, great mechanics, and lovable characters.
Chrono trigger - Incredibly deep story, love the uniqueness of the battles, and the uniqueness of the story (at the time)
Pokemon - 'nuff said.
Mario and green guy: Superstar saga - Hilarious, love the timed hits mechanic, love the ridiculousness of it all.
FFX - After three years since I've played it... I'm still welling up in tears when I hear the main theme, To Zanarkend
I finished Bravely Default yesterday. It has every cliche imaginable, and I love it for it. It's a love letter to fans of Final Fantasy everywhere.
