Single-Player RPGs / Re: Favorite "Tales of" Game and why?
« on: August 12, 2012, 12:24:29 AM »
I'm a relative late-comer to the Tales series*  but I'd go with Abyss.

As far as story/characters go I'd have a hard time making a decision, however i feel FoFs gave Abyss the most interesting combat system.  I actually wish they would have gone a little further with them.

*Started with Symphonia, completed that Graces, Abyss, Vesperia and Legendia.  I've attempted some of the classics (Phantasia and Eternia) but failed to get drawn into them.

Xenoblade by a pretty wide margin. 

I loved the characters and the combat, even thought the story was pretty decent.  The only part of that really left a sour taste in my mouth was the fact that the developers thought it adequate to ignore the last 10 years of evolution in the area of interface design.  The quest UI, reputation UI, even the inventory were all a complete mess.

I feel like I should revisit FFXII at some point to give it another chance, but the combat completely turned me off.  Most of the cast didn't help much either.
