The last one I’ve ever tried was Vesperia.
I’m so painfully behind on the franchise.
Tales of the Abyss is hands down the best game in the series. It was practically flawless. However, Chloe from Legendia is best girl.
In order of which ones are the best in my opinion
Tales of the Abyss
Tales of Vesperia
Tales of Symphonia
Tales of Phantashia
Tales of Zestiria
Tales of Eternia
I need to get myself a PS4 so that I can play Graces and Xillia, also Berseria
Tales of Symphonia was the best. It’s the only one that allowed you to have a romance with one of the female characters of your choosing. It’s a damn shame that the games that followed were lacking in that department
Of the handful of Tales games I've played, this is how I'd rank them:
1. Graces f (first one I ever played, so maybe I'm biased)
Anyone that's a fan of the Tales games, I'd highly recommend playing Y's VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana. It's similar to the Tales games, and I personally think it's better than any of those titles I've played.
YES! relatively new to the franchise but it is becoming a favorite. Played through Xillia (millas side), Berseria, Abyss (Best character development), Graces F (excluding the future arc). I own rebirth on the PSP (havent played it yet), and currently playing through Vesperia. Xillia is my fav.
I still see people commenting on this thread so gonna add my two cents
Adore the entire tales series, top 5 off the top of my head:
1. Tales of the Abyss
2. Tales of Xillia
3. Tales of Vesperia
4. Tales of Graces
5. Tales of Legendia
Some of the best JRPGs I've ever played
I've only ever played Tales Of Berseria, Symphonia (and dawn of the new world), Xillia and Vesperia.
They're pretty good but I'm more of a final fantasy guy.
Berseria was my personal favorite though. Velvet is best
Tales has some great titles, my favorite being Vesperia.
I prefer the Trails series though, for its long interconnected narrative and world building (9 games and counting).
