    only for GBA and DS?
    I would go first with the Golden Sun games for the GBA. That was the game that got me into RPGs. The puzzles are top notch, The battle system is fun and dynamic (with the Djinns and all that shit), and the music is the best you could find in any RPG (Motoi Sakuraba = GOD).

    All of the Super Robot Taisen games minus the first Original Generation game (Didn't like it that much but it was good)

    My personal favorites:
    Bowser's Inside Story
    Super Robot Taisen OG Saga Endless Frontier
    Chrono Trigger
    Golden Sun: Dark Dawn
    Pokemon main series (although I did enjoy some spinoffs as well and am thinking of replaying Ranger 2 some day)
    Pokemon Mystery Dungeon (series, but mostly Sky)
    Kingdom Hearts: X/X Days (the missions got repetitive, but the battle system was okay, the slot system was pretty fun to use and local multiplayer was cool)
    The World Ends With You
    Castlevania (if that even counts)

    Not in any particular order. These are all for the DS.

    Others have said it, but play The World Ends With You if it looks at all interesting to you.
    Knights in the Nightmare is also fantastic, and I hold it up there with TWEWY in terms of depth of gameplay and overall quality.
    The Shin Megami Tensei games are all top notch RPGs and a good challenge.

    Superstar Saga was muuuuch better than its two sequels, pacing was incredible and it was throughly challenging.

    As for other good RPGs....
    Radiant Dawn
    Summon Night Swordcraft Story 2
    Nostalgia
    Tales of Hearts (jap only but battle system is incredible)
    the sequel to Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon that only came out in japan, it has a completed english patch however.
    Mother 3, english patch too, absolutely phonemal rpg, especially if you loved Earthbound

    Speaking of patches, SaGa 2 and 3 remakes on the DS also have fan patches available. They're pretty nice remakes, though the series itself can be a pit offputting.

    Say whaaat. I loved the GB versions of both of these games, though I'll admit I didn't play all the way through the DS versions (patches were incomplete at the time).

    Incidentally, since this was posted near the beginning of January, I'm going to assume the OP has decided on what to play next? So, what did you pick, you crazy young man?

    The DS has tons and tons of RPGS on it. I'm a huge fan of rpgs/jrpgs and can go on forever with lists of good games but here's a few titles for the hell of it.( sorry if some have been previously mentioned )

    All DS titles

    Radiant Historia - AMAZING story, highly recommended
    Soma Bringer - Hasn't been released in the west, you'll need to use a flash cart but there's a complete English translation patch, it's also from the same makers of xenoblade
    Suikoden Tierkreis
    Etrian Odyssey I + II + III
    Dragon quest V
    Dragon quest IV
    Dragon quest VI
    Dragon quest IX
    Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 1 + 2
    Infinite space
    Summon Night: Twin Age
    Solatorobo Red the Hunter
    Phantasy Star 0
    Orcs & Elves
    Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals
    Might and Magic Clash of heroes
    Okamiden
    Castlevania Down of Sorrow - (my favorite out of the series)
    Children of Mana
    Devil Survivor series
    Disgaea
    Tales of Hearts
    Tales of Innocence
    Knights in the Nightmare
    Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume
    Rondo of Swords
    Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled
    Nostalgia
    Golden sun: Dark Dawn
    Lunar Knights
    Contact


    (FF series left out)

    Ok getting bored of listing, but that should be enough :). None of the listed games are bad in my opinion. I have good memories and experiences with all, also I didn't like the world ends with you at all, imo it's overrated, but I understand and respect those who love it. Though there are lots of other fantastic ds rpgs that could use some of TWEWYs attention.

    I highly recommend Soma Bringer. Since it wasn't released in the West you will need a flashcard, and luckily there's a full English translation, so you'll need to patch it with that. The DS is my favorite gaming device and RPGS are my favorite types of games so if anyone wants to talk about some DS rpgs or the DS in general then hit me up^_^. Have fun! :nds:
