plz to help

So, I'm looking for an RPG to get this Christmas for either PS2 or GC. I just want a game with a thriving fandom I can get into - however, I prefer games with a more serious theme. I was thinking Tales of Symphonia, but it is fairly light-hearted. So I'm falling back on Fire Emblem, one of the Shin Megami Tensei games (don't know where to start though - which one?) or a Suikoden game (don't know which one to start with there either, and the whole 108 characters thing scares me shit out of me). I'm more for plot and characters than gameplay. I don't care how it plays, as long as the characters are endearing and the plot enthralling.

Recommendations, anyone?
