Thanks to some complications with life I will be spending about 6 months away from my family and friends, but I will have my trusty PS3!

So here is my question for the interwebs:
What is your favorite JRPG? Or which do you thing is a must play?

I have a PSN account so it can be from any generation of Playstation as well as on the PSP. I'm just looking for something that's going to brighten my time alone.

Thanks for any and all help!!!

My favs are Star Ocean Til the End of time (ps2), Tales of the Abyss (ps2), and definitely Demon's Souls (ps3).... Get Demon's Souls =), or wait until October for Dark Souls

Although I don't play tht much role playing games, I heard that Valkyrie Chronicles (ps3), Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria (ps2), Rogue Galaxy (ps2)
are good.... Kinda watch my brother played them, and they look pretty good lol

There are so many good JRPG's to choose from.... This is a list of some of my favorites off the top of my head, but by no means is this definitive.....

PsP: Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (5*, absolutely great), Y's Chronicles (all of em rock), Star Ocean (both are awesome despite peoples affinity for the second as opposed to the first), Final Fantasy 4 Complete Collection (worth it even if you already played though FF4 in the past), Yggdrasil Union, Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Togeather, Valkryie Profile (another "can't miss" in my oppinion), Jean D' Arc (remarkable S-JRPG), Persona (they all rock as well!!),

PS1: Suikoden 1 and 2, Wild Arms, Grandia, Lunar (both titles are absolute musts and probably the most highly recomended on my list), Breath of Fire 3 and 4, Tales of Destiny, Xenogears, Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy Tactics, Vandal Hearts, Alundra, Legend of Mana

PS2: Growlanser Generations and Heritage of War ("must plays" for any JRPG fan!), Disgaea (personal favorites), Any of the Tales Games, Xenosaga (2 was rough, but worth it to make it to 3), Star Ocean Til the End of Time,

PS3: Disgaea 3, Record of Agarest Wars: Zero (not for everyone... you really need to enjoy JRPGS to appreciate this one..), Eternal Sonata (Freakin' awesome, just get it), White Knight Chronicles (if you have nothing better to do....)

NOTE: Disgaea 4 comes out in a few weeks and I will dropping all my current play-throughs at the moment to solely focus on this lovely highlight of my gaming year.... just saying.....

For PS3 I love Trinity Universe, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Ar Tonelico Qoga (I don't think these ones have been mentioned).
