The Tales series is a series of Japanese games released by Namco Bandai. They are a big name title in Japan, though not as well known in the west. The settings and characters are different in each game; the series is connected only in themes, gameplay mechanics, and the naming convention in the titles. (Tales of Phantasia, Tales of the Abyss, etc.) Think Final Fantasy, but without the crushingly depressing amount of fanfiction.
The Tales series began with Tales of Phantasia in 1995, and continues to see releases in the present. Many of the games have also seen adaptations released in the form of anime, manga and radio plays.
The games are heavily narrative-driven, with character interaction being a heavy focus in cutscenes. They tend to feature themes of justice and faith, and often center around conflict vs. coexistence between different races.
