Default Tales of Arise - IGN's RPG of the Year 2021

December 27th, 2021, 00:52
IGN thinks Tales of Arise is the best RPG of the Year 2021:

The Best RPG of 2021 Winner

Tales of Arise

The Tales of series has been comfort food JRPG goodness for years, and Arise keeps that warm familiarity while making a number of overdue changes to the Tales of formula. It amps up the formerly linear motion battle system to almost full-blown character action RPG intensity, all while retaining the jubilant anime franticness of everyone yelling attack names at once. Its story tackles hefty topics like the horrors of war, slavery, colonization, and the challenges of rebuilding after all that, and mostly manages to handle the difficult intricacies with care. But it also is still a Tales story, peppered with humor and light-hearted interactions between its complex and fascinating cast of heroes. With them at the helm of an adventure across a beautiful, intriguing new world, Arise comes together to give the Tales of series a much-needed reinvigoration while still feeling, thankfully, like a Tales game. - Rebekah Valentine

Good JRPG but I would never call it my RPG of the Year. Mainstream sites.

At least their counterpart in Japan gave Cyberpunk 2077 that honor.

Everything in that article is JRPGs. A mild adjustment to the title would solve this, albeit then it wouldn't be clickbait.

Wow if this list truly represented the best RPGs being put out today, it'd be time for me to find a new hobby.

Nah, it's just time to place IGN on ignore. I did that a long time ago.

If I was 23 again like the people who work at IGN and discovering JPRGs for the first time, I might contribute to an article like this. But I'm not.
