Get nostalgic with this Tales series video retrospective

A brief look at one of the best JRPG franchises ever

While I haven't spent nearly as much time with Tales of Xillia as I've wanted (I'll blame the phenomenal Dragon's Crown and my newfound obsession with Saltybet) I'm still nonetheless impressed with the latest installment of the beloved Tales franchise. As always the battle engine is quite superb and, if not for the Grandia series, easily the best in the business. 

All that aside, the fine folks over at Sony's PS Access channel have put together a lovely video highlighting some of the fabled franchise's greatest entries in celebration of the release of Tales of Xillia. While the video is aimed at the series' UK releases, each title in the video has made an appearance stateside in one form or another. Either way, it's a lovely trip down memory lane. 

So which Tales games is your favorite? I'll always have a warm spot in my heart for Tales of Symphonia
