Favourite RPG Series?

I had to go with TES, and rather dislike having to make that choice.
ROA, Ultima, M&M, and Gold Box I haven't played. NWN, FO, and Gothic I detest to various levels. BG rates as
tolerable. And while I really like Wizardry, I only consider the last three entries to be RPGs -- the first five are dungeon crawlers that slowly picked up RPG elements. So it's hard to rate Wizardry high as an "RPG Series" Fun, yes, but overall lacking in elements I consider essential for the "RPG" tag.
That leaves TES as the one series I can credit as an entire series. (Yeah yeah, I know, <insert random rude oblivion comments>.)
If we were rating individual games from the different series, my response would be vastly different.
I did finally get a copy of the Ultima collection (sadly, no Worlds of Ultima included), and I've been trying M&M on and off. In both cases, I'm planning to go through them in order. Now if only I could find a reasonably priced copy of the RoA series. I don't like/trust downloading games.
Hammer, anvil, forge and fire,
chase away the hoofed liar.
Roof and doorway, block and beam,
chase the Trickster from our dream.
