Why do people think TOGf is one of the best rpgs on PS3?

Now don't get it wrong, I love the game, was one of the first to get all trophies in NA, broke my phat playing the ex dungeon for too long, etc.

As a Tales game, I prefer others much more in terms of gameplay,characters(especially),story. Really solid game, loved the extras and costumes and all the "little" things.

Now that I'm thinking about it, maybe it's chosen because the lack of rpgs this gen(or quality ones or Japanese styled ones). Have people played other Tales games? Would you still choose it if you included PC,360,Wii rpgs?

There aren't many other choices.

Because it is. That owes more to the fact that there is less competition as of now than any merit Graces actually earns for itself.

There are easily better Tales games, but not ones that are readily accessible to all PS3 gamers in English.

If I include PC rpg`s than no, I love the 3 Legend of Heroes: Sora no Kiseki chapters! Great games!

True, which is why Graces f (though it's a solid game) isn't even my favorite PS3 Tales.
Best 3D battle system, and probably a really coherent story, but Vesperia does everything else better for me.

If we're talking JRPGs most of them were crap this gen...well that made it to North America.

Outside of Disgaea anything NIS as well as Idea Factory or GUST is nothing but anime cliches meant to please otakus.

Level 5's White Knight Chronicles wasn't their best work, especially since they ended the PS2 era with Rogue Galaxy. Atleast WKC2 was better.

The Final Fantasies... though I didn't hate them like everyone who complains, I didn't exactly love them either. It also always pissed me off knowing that the ps3 version was "downgraded" so it could be equivalent to the 360 version.

Star Ocean Last Hope, had bland story and blander characters...alright gameplay though.

I did hear good things about Eternal Sonata. Might pick it up one day.

So yeah the list isn't that big. Pretty much why Tales of Grace f is up there

I`ve played other tales game. Pretty much played every game from symphonia and onward.(Legendia, Abyss, Vesperia, Mythology 1, symphonia 2, graces, etc.)
and I have to say that Graces is probably my second favorite game in the series for me. With only abyss suprassing it.

It may not have the best story but everything is top notch in my opinon. Love the characters and it probably has the best skits in the series. The combat system is the best in the series if we`re talking about 3d tales game. and I love the progression system via titles. Overall, I say I love the game.
