Playstation RPG Backlog (PS1, PS2, & PS3)

Here it is. My complete backlog of Playstation 1-3 RPGs.
I'm sure its not as big as many others, but 12 RPGs are more than enough for me.
I never owned a PS2. Yeah, gasp! I know. I bought my first PS1 six months before the PS2 came out. So, I've been about a generation behind on consoles since the SNES-era. Last year when I finally caught up to this generation and bought a PS3, backwards compatability was big for me. So, when the Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle came out with an 80gig hard-drive and emulated PS2 BC, I was ready to jump all over that.
As a fan of the RPGs, I had a lot to catch up on. The first PS2 RPG I played thru was the awesome Persona 3 FES. Subsequently, I've played thru Final Fantasy X, X2, and XII, the Xenosaga series (Episodes 1-3), and Persona 4.
So, here's what I have left in my PS2 RPG backlog.
I'm about halfway thru SMT Nocturne. Long, involving game from what I've played so far. The story isn't all that great, but I do enjoy the demon fusing and stuff. Its just not a game I can throw huge amounts of time into. Great for playing a few weeks, then putting down and moving on, then coming back to later and play it more for a few weeks, etc.
I'm sure Digital Devil Saga is similar, so I will totally not touch that game until I'm finished with Nocturne.
Looking forward to Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter a little, but its low on my play list. I loved BoF 3 and 4, but I'm not so sure about this one. From what I've heard and read, it is relatively short, but brutally difficult.
I tried Star Ocean, and didn't much care for it. I'll give it another chance again sometime later, because I didn't get very far in it. One of my best friends loves the game and consideres it one of his favorite RPGs of all time. Me, I wasn't so convinced.
Don't know much at all about dot.hack and Valkyrie Profile 2. I've never played Valkyrie Profile 1 (shame on me?) so I might hold onto it until VP1 shows up on PSN.
What's to say about DQVIII? I've always been a fan of the Dragon Quest games, but this one just hasn't grabbed me and demanded that I play it.
Of all my PS2 backlog, I'd have to say that the one I'm looking forward most to playing is Tales of the Abyss. Many consider it to be one of the best "Tales of" games. The only other Tales game I've played is Symphonia.
Now, as for my small PS3 RPG backlog.
I'm working thru Eternal Sonata now. I should have it completed within a couple of weeks.
I've put about 8 hours or so into Disgaea 3, which is barely just a scratch on the surface. Never played Disgaea 1 or 2, so its all new to me.
As for Enchanted Arms, I suppose I'll get around to it eventually, but it is low on my list.
My only PS1 RPG on the backlog is The Legend of Dragoon. Its probably the lowest on my backlog, and I seriously doubt I'll ever get to it. But who knows, someday I might have time, so I'll keep it around for now.
So, that's my RPG backlog. For now. Hopefully I can burn thru at least 5-6 of these next year. After I beat Eternal Sonata, I'm probably gonna play Tales of the Abyss, or maybe DQ8. Depends on my mood, I guess.
