very tough question, I vote Final Fantasy and don't blame anyone for choosing anything else.

EDIT: FF has the most amount of excellent games in the franchise(SMT is close but I haven't played all yet). Tales is really good as well, the gameplay is the selling point but the story is never very strong or the characters themselves. KH is a branch off FF and on its own there are few really good titles but the other ones are kinda junk, half and half.

Even though there hasnt been a good Final Fantasy game in almost a decade, Final Fantasy is still the best JRPG series and one of the best series ever.

I'm willing to bet that it'll be neck-and-neck between SMT and FF.

SMT has done a good job in consistently releasing high-quality games. It's a shame that I can't say the same for FF.

If SE released FF games that were of the same quality as FF's VI, VII, IX, X and Tactics in the last 4 or so years, then FF would be tens of miles ahead of the rest of the options in this poll.

Glad to see I was wrong. FF is the best JRPG series ever, even if the past few installments haven't been amazing/have been controversial.
