Well I tried asking this question in the RPG part of the forum but didnt get a single answer So I will try here.
Anybody have any recommendations for a good RPG game for the vita?
DOnt bother with monster hunter games tho I tried those and they really didnt get me interested in them for some reason :/

I'd vote for Persona 4 too.
I've played it and it is very good but it's not a typical JRPG in that it doesn't follow quite the cutesy anime art style and the tone is quite heavy (dealing with murder and suicide in some instances for example).
Having said that, it's not Skyrim either - it's definitely a Japanese RPG but Teen focused rather than preschool.
P4 isn't officially out in Europe yet but it's a safe import since there's no DLC to speak of. If you're not sure about it, Persona 3 Portable (PSP game) is available but still quite expensive. However that was one of the highest rated PSP games and is good in its own right.
Other than that, there's Disgaea which is more typical JRPG and Ragnarok Odessey which is a Monster Hunter variant so you probably won't like it.
Really the PSP library is the best place to look for JRPGs - they're usually not all that graphically intensive anyway so the nice Vita screen is enough to bump them up graphically.

any of the Ys games get a big thumbs up from me, Ys seven is superb, great action based combat and a nice little story to boot, not so heavy on the character development side, but well worth a look. (it is a psp game though).
Persona 4 I think is the only actual RPG ish game out for the vita in the EU atm. I havent played the vita version but the ps2 one was amazing. mix between a great rpg and a dating sim of sorts, very quirky.
Cheers for that I dont mind them being PSP games as long as they are in the vitas store I will have a look at a few gameplay vids and see if either Ys or Persona 4 are something I would enjoy

I'm with Terramax. If you've never played any of the wonderful JRPGs that were available for the PSOne, then the Vita gves you the perfect opportunity to experience them. They may be getting on a bit, but they certainly don't feel dated - and they still look half decent on the OLED screen.
Vagrant Story, Alundra, Grandia, Final Fantasys VII, VIII & IX will give you months worth of play for a bargain price.
