Demon's Souls, Pokemon Silver/Soul Silver, Mass Effect 2, Chrono Cross (released in NA in 2000 so it counts dammit), Chrono Trigger (DS remake :P), Mass Effect, Paper Mario and the Thousand Year Door, Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story, annnnnnd well to fill it in I suppose I'll say Pokemon Sapphire... wow this is hard most of my favorite RPGs were in the '90s.

I've gotta be missing something though...
