One of my all-time favorites. I still get into discussions (and arguments) with people about this. Great music for it's time (and instrumentals make it great even now!), great story line and real life influence (anyone catch that Magus is a lot like the founder of Islam?), characters were fantastic, and... just an overall great game. My kids WILL play this as their first RPG as well.

If you like the philosophical implications of the game, you may be interested to know that although I can't remember the exact site, there's a relatively popular essay that's been floating around the internet for a while which shows if not conclusive proof for the game being a biblical allegory, at least interesting comparisons between it's plot and characters and the Christ story.
sigh. If I wanted to be all christ chex as you put it, then I'd be actually talking about the bible. The man mentioned Magus's similarities to the founder of Islam, so I thought he might be interested in a well written paper that compares to the bible, which is interesting whether or not one is a follower of Christianity just due to the large number of similarities. It should be noted that almost every culture has a messianic figure, and that their stories are all relatively similar, and that with little work the paper could be adjusted to fit almost any religion or myth.
Oh, don't mind him. That's just his sense of humor showing ^_^
I'll keep that in mind in the future. Never can tell, considering that a fair amount of people would be like "OMG!!!! UR TRYING TO CORRUPT M3!!!" if you even mentioned something like that.
Oh you're funny. I like you.
Actually, I think I came upon that essay. Two things to note were
1. Most of these little tid-bits are only in the English version of the game.
2. Are common traits among hero stories (such as Hercules and Odin both overcoming death).

Good to see your interest though!
All stories are inherently biblical. Look at the Matrix, it ripped off that part from Psalms 211 where Jesus dodges the bullets fired by the Greeks!
@Akrahun Thanks for the kind words.
