Are there any RPGs that are set around Modern times? The setting could be within around 10 years of the date of the games release, If the game takes place in some fictitional world, For the most part, their level of technology would be somwhere around where ours is. I can accept it if there is a nation out there that is super advanced (similar to esthar in FFVIII), I guess I can accept the occasionl Robot and Bio-weapon as well.
For the most part, they are either set in what would be considered the dark ages (the older final fantasys, elderscrolls etc) or far into the future (xenosaga, star ocean etc)
Pretty much the only one that comes to mind for me is Parasite Eve. Are there any others?
edit: after reading through this again, based on the description I gave, I guess I could include FFVII and VIII as well.
