PS3 Tails Of games have been a huge letdown

So much so, that now, I hate the entire Tales franchise. The games are getting repetitive and boring. Having played much better JRPG last gen, I can see how stale the franchise is getting. My first Tales game was Symphonia which I enjoyed. The Tales of Graces had a bad plot, dialog, cast, fighting system, everything.

I think my major problem, is having played just terrific games like Rainbow Moon and The Last of Us. I just went back to Xillia. The graphics look like Zelda OoT for me. Not sure if it is because of playing on the PS4 as of lately, but I've only given it 2 hours, and the linear maps, terrible fighting system is getting to me.

I'm sure some people enjoy it. but I don't know why. Is it because it's like a fighter/RPG hybrid battle system? Or because of multiplayer JRPG?

Do you have to enjoy anime to get into it? I don't really like WRPG like Skyrim and the lot, but just can't get into this series anymore. I am sad.

I am inclined to agree. Didn't like Xillia all that much for some reason. I hear Xillia 2 is supposed to be better but I'm not holding my breath. Graces was abominable in every way imaginable. I just want Vesperia for PS3 localized. But that would require Namco to have a heart. And to not be bribed by Microsoft.

They generally ARE. Tales is a subpar RPG series.

I agree, but I feel the same with Final Fantasy as well.

Eh, they're really fun to play, that's more than I can say about at least 50% of JRPGs.

Try FF13 if you enjoyed Graces F. Both don't have world maps, and corridors for you to transverse though.
