Japanese role-playing game enthusiasts tend to have an inevitable slew of noteworthy IPs on their Mount Rushmore for the sub-genre as a whole. Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, Shin Megami Tensei, Fire Emblem, and The Legend of Heroes could all be considered worthy picks for the best franchises. Another pick that deserves all the accolades in the world for its historic run of releases and penchant for high-quality experiences is Bandai Namco's Tales series. Just like Final Fantasy, the Tales games start anew with a fresh cast of characters embarking on a precarious journey in hopes of defeating a great evil and bringing hope back to the family and friends they hold so dear. And on rare occasions, surprising sequels continue the adventures of Tales' most beloved roster members. It's about time we take a trip down memory lane and bring you all with us as we rank the best Tales games.
