    Title says it all. I'm looking for a game that has a really deep storyline, preferably a RPG.
    Can anyone suggest one or a couple?

    Are you tried The World Ends With You? It's long enough for me to not complete it yet.

    I know you asked for RPG, but one of the series that I think has great gameplay and a really deep story is the ace attorney series, even thoughits not really an RPG, the gameplay is very fun.

    I agree with tenentenen if you are searching for good games with a deep storyline nothing better than the Ace Attorney games, I'm a RPG lover but this games are the best.

    But if you really want an RPG with that features I can recomend Dragon Quest V.

    In my opinion, the Ace Attorney series has the best story ever, who cares if it isn't an RPG?! IT'S AN AWESOME SERIES!!!!

    Also try KH 358/2 Days, TWEWY, and Dragon Quest IV

    Time Hollow has a deep storyline, kept me playing and enjoying it even though the game itself is rather linear.

    In Vulpes' Fur
    Phoenix Wright/ Apollo Justice (best story ever on DS for me, not an RPG though)
    Prof. Layton DB/CV (2nd best story ever on DS for me)
    KH (3rd best story for me)

    And then, in no particular order....

    Chrono Trigger
    FF III and IV (although if you have a PS1/2/P or GB FF VI and VII has better story)
    TWEWY
    Time Hollow
    Hotel Dusk
    DQ IV/V/IV
    SMT:DS and SMT: SJ
    Trace Memory
    Knights in Nightmare
    Suidoken
    Disgea
    Soma Bringer
    Fire Emblem
    Final Fantasy CC: RoF/EoT (RoF was better in terms of story, EoT in gameplay)
    Pokemon: Mystery Dungeon (these have much better story than Pt/P/D)
    GTA: CW
    COP
    Luminous Arc
    Avalon Code
    M&L 2/3
    Castlevania (all of them)
    Sonic: Dark Brotherhood
    Sands of Destruction
    Henry Hastworth
    FFXII: RW
    Metroid
    Trauma Center 1/2
    Yoshi's Island
    Super Robot Taisen
    Nostalgia
    Pokemon Ranger 2 (the first one's story was boring)
    Zelda (good to some people, for me, meh)
    Tales of Hearts
    Tales of Innocence
    SaGa 2
    Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume
    Rune Factory 1/2
    Nanashi no Geemu (if it ever gets translated)

    All I can think of. Hope it helps. [​IMG]

    Not really, it won't be fun if you know the answers to everything. But because I wanted more, I've played all five of them and am waiting for the Miles Edgeworth one to come out.

    Nothing in ds come close to Xeno series in term of story line, I guess they think that a plot tangled with religious, psychological, politics and morale beside the usual kill the bad guy is unsuitable for ds geography which is mostly kids.

    If you want one, get a console.
