Destiny 2(The real sequel to Destiny and only in Japan but on the PS2 and PSP)
Symphonia(In America on the Gamecube. Has a PS2 version but only in Japan)

Legendia(PS2 and in America)
Abyss(PS2 and in America)
Innocence(On the DS in Japan only but has an English patch which is almost complete)
Vesperia(On the 360 in the US and has a PS3 remake in Japan only)
Hearts(On the DS only in Japan with a patch being made but only is very early in the works)

That's it aside from other titles which are crossovers/fanservice/side stories.

Many of the games are japanese only. I suggest you start out with Tales of Vesperia if you have a 360.

wow i didnt know they were mostly japanese, so the only ones i can actually play (since i have a ps2) are:
Phantasia --> english (what is a patch? and what is GBA?)
destiny --> english
eternia/destiny II --> english

is there a way to know which of the above games are the english or japanese versions? cause the only place i can get them is on ebay and i dont want to get screwed over?

also is the Verperia for PS3 in english??

Simply put, the patch is made(by translators/hackers) to translate the game into English. It requires a little work on your part though as you need to patch the disk/game/iso.

And GBA = Gameboy Advance

Clicking on the link of each game should help. Also, Gamefaqs....has the games' boxshots.

There is no reason to play them all because most of them suck pretty badly.

Namco Bandai is pissing me off. They are making me wish they would make a new Tales of game for a microsoft system as that seems to be the only way we Americans will get the game. Since it seems they won't let Xseed touch Graces for Wii or bring it over themselves.
