You know. Take the Witcher and Deus Ex's philosophical and social commentary, mix in the black humor and amorality from Vampire the Masquerade, add a little psychological uncertainty a la Spec Ops: The Line...

And then the Tales combat system, techs, skits, and all that.

Would automatically be the best game ever.
Masquerade was fantastic.

I don't think it'd fit very well. Something about "dark and serious" just doesn't seem to mesh well with "flashy action combat", in my mind.

Xillia 2 is extremely dark and depressing by Tales or even most jrpg standards.

Obviously it's not really like what you described though.

The notion of it bores me personally.
I like my games light-hearted and fun.
I generally don't take things seriously enough to buy into the 'darker' stuff.

It just wouldn't be what I've come to expect from the series. Why would I want to drastically change something that I already enjoy so much as is?
I could just play another series if I want a completely different experience.

To provide a new perspective, and for the writers to try something new that they ordinarily wouldn't be able to.

I doubt they enjoy writing similar stories/characters over and over again.

Xillia 2 is the darkest one. It also the one with the best story in the series. I don't know if I want more Tales games like that. It was so sad. Even now, I'm still sad. That game made me cry so much.
