I'm looking for a new game with a focus on story, but with engaging gameplay.
My favorite console RPGs tend to have awesome/engaging stories but lack interesting or dynamic gameplay (ie, Fallout 3/NV/Skyrim have really interesting story elements, but the combat tends to be bland). Dragon Age was good, but I'm looking for something new to me.
I think the later two Mass Effects had a good balance, and the first wasn't too far off. Dragon's Dogma looked interesting from a gameplay perspective, but weak on the story.
This can simply be an opinion thread, and you don't need to stick to 360 (I've got all current handhelds and only lack Nintendo consoles), but I'm primarily looking for a co sole title personally.

Fire Emblem Awakening, man. Treat yourself. Persona 4 Golden for Vita is fantastic for 360, I really liked Fable 2 and 3's combat. It might be easy, but the spells are a blast. If you like turn based, Lost Odyssey is the absolute best this gen. On consoles, at least.

Dark Souls has my favorite game play / combat by far. Kinda lacking in the story if that's what you're looking for as well, but I loved the combat so much that I found myself grinding a lot just because I liked it. Because of that I had pretty good stats and equipment and didn't find it impossibly hard like some say.
