Ahhh, SNES RPG oldies. Terranigma (only released in Europe and Japan) is right up there with Chrono Trigger and FF6 for me. Amazing ending, and the soundtrack is brilliant. I am also one of the few that really liked Secret of Evermore. The soundtrack for that one was done by the same guy that does music for Elder Scrolls and Guild Wars!
There are also many that I love on the PS1, like Star Ocean 2 and Lunar, and my tastes for this-gen RPGs are more on the western side. Borderlands, Mass Effect, and my boyfriend and I are really looking forward to that Kingdoms of Amalur game. The demo was awesome.
Tough call. For quite a while I'd say Final Fantasy III (US) and / or Chrono Trigger. Squaresoft did some of the best games for the SNES in its day. I can't say anything really captured me from then until I played Mass Effect, which I very much enjoyed and hen got my hands on Oblivion - and I found a Mistress on the XBOX360. Or so k1tt3n says :-) I'm playing Skyrim now, and love it. I'd love to go back and play all the Final Fantasy games that I haven't so far, but I think I'd rather to the Elder Scrolls even more. So it's a toss at this point between FF III and Oblivion, although Skyrim is gaining fast.

I really like FFX. We own FFXII but I haven't gotten around to play it yet and my husband got stuck somewhere and hasn't picked it back up in a long time. FFX was just so beautiful to play. A little different, but I also really enjoy the Paper Mario series. Its super easy and fun to kill time when I didn't want to put a lot of effort in :)
Final Fantasy 7 is my all time best...followed by Mass Effect 2.

There are two that instantly come to mind. Secret of Mana and Legend of zelda: link to the past. I agree with Best that this was an awesome multi-player. I had 2 older brothers and it was one of a few games that we all could play together. I also would have to say Earthbound would rank up there too. :)

It's likely between Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy 3. Or maybe Final Fantasy 2. Secret of Mana was amazing too, offering multiplayer like it did, which was incredible for two young RPG-loving brothers in our house. ;-)
Gosh, on the other hand, Shining Force 2 was so awesome. And Xenogears. I spent so many hours with my buddy playing Dragon Warrior 3...
Well, I can't choose, but either way just the question takes me back in time to some wonderful memories.
Maybe Morrowind. Likely caused my divorce. Seriously.
