Lost Odyssey is one of the most depressing games you will ever play, I think. It is too bad that I never got to finish it due to shenanigans.

Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and Trail of Cold Steel are very good titles.

Goodness. You can name practically any title from the PS1, PS2, GBA, DS, and PSP that is not a Final Fantasy game and have it be underappreciated, but my submission is the entire Dragon Quest trilogy for the DS (4, 5, and 6; 9's on there, too, but that's a bit different). Wonderful games, and those DS remakes give them a fine coat of polish.

But, yes, everybody should play Radiant Historia. That's what the sequel to Chrono Trigger should have been. Amazing game.

I liked Bound by Flame a lot more than I expected. Not saying it's a good game but it's worth a shot. Also, Kingdom's of Amalur. I actually thought that was better than Skyrim as they came out not to far apart.

I'll throw in a more recent one, Nights of Azure on the PS3/PS4. It's a simple but fun RPG with action combat, light monster raising elements and beautiful character designs. It's also got a really good and actually mature story with an actually developed take on a yuri relationship.

TWEWY as people have said. Very original, probably my favourite DS game.

Golden Sun on DS was way better than I was expecting. The fight animations were surprisingly good.

Also Magical Starsign. I saw this in shops all the time but it looked like some boring generic game so I passed over it. I finally bought when it was on offer when there was literally nothing else to buy. It was so good. And it was actually funny?? Which almost never happens in video games.

Odin SPhere, which isn't a typical RPG but it looks gorgeous and I found the story quite good.

Came here to say Legend of Dragoon. Adding Mother 3 and Radiant Historia to that list.

Also, Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance is an absolute must.

I've been playing Okage: Shadow King for the PS2. I think it's pretty obscure, however it is available on the Playstation Network now for the PS4. The game came out in 2001 and it definitely shows, but the game is just oozing with style. The character designs are all very Tim Burtonesque and the game has a quirky sense of humor.

Another game I would have to mention is the original Dark Cloud. It had great music, good fighting system, cool world building aspect, etc...Maybe it's not as obscure as Okage, but I still think it doesn't get the recognition it deserves.
