Owning both, I'd say the 3DS.|
The Vita has very little exclusive to offer imo and there isn't much on the horizon. It's a lovely bit of kit, but its dreadfully supported.
The 3DS has a couple of essential games and then some very good ones. It's also truly portable, easily slips into a pocket, whereas the Vita is a chunky beast with a glorious screen you don't want to harm.
Heck, if you're after RPGs you could get a 3DS and very cheap PSP for the back catalogue.
