    RPG is a very broad term, what kind were you looking for?

    Allow me to specify for Hyro-Sama.

    Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
    Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga
    Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2
    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES (Don't bother with the regular version, this one has more content and a rebalanced social link system.)
    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4 (Warning! This one is gaming crack cocaine!)
    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoa Versus The Soulless Army
    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoa Versus King Abbadon

    I think that's it.

    I would also recommend Dragon Quest 8, Tales of the Abyss, Odin Sphere, Soul Eater, Disgaea 1 and 2 (or if you can get the PSP versions of those, do that instead), Makai Kingdom, Xenosaga 1, 2, and 3, Star Ocean: Until The End of Time, and Rogue Galaxy.

    If I think of more, I'll put it up later.

    Bortz is right OP, get DQ 8. It has the best soundtrack I've ever heard in a video game.

    FFX was a good choice to get and I'll have to agree with most others here on DQ8.

    rogue galaxy
    tales of the abyss
    disgaea (1&2) (psp version has more stuff)
    shadow hearts covenant
    arc the lad

    I would add dark cloud 2 because there's not a lot of game of that style on ps2.

    Okami (while it's not strictly a rpg (more zelda like), the game is a must play)

    Tales of Symphonia was on PS2, right? I played it on GC, but it is a seriously kick-ass game.
