Tales RPGs Are Like Gumdrops, Says The Guy Who Makes Them

Jason Schreier: ''I like to compare the long-running Tales action-RPG series to fast food: they’re not particularly nutritious and you always know what you’re gonna get, but when you’ve got the craving, they can’t be beat. Hideo Baba, on the other hand, says they’re more like gumdrops.

I had asked Baba, the man who directs and produces the Tales games, about the reputation that they’re all kind of the same: same JRPG gameplay, same hack-n-slash combat, same anime-styled graphics, same stable of restorative items. Often they even share the same voice actors.

I wish I had recorded his response.'' (Culture, Hideo Baba, Tales)
