  1. Tales

    The Tales series is a franchise of fantasy Japanese role-playing video games published by Namco Bandai Games, and primarily developed by its subsidiary, Namco Tales Studio. First started in 1995 with the development of Tales of Phantasia, the series now spans fourteen games in the main series. Additionally, while primarily role-playing games, the series features an extensive line up of spin-off games that often span other genres, and four stand-alone animated productions based on the video games. While many of the spinoffs contain crossover appearancees of characters within the main series, the main series games are largely unrelated to one another unless denoted with their names. Eight out of Fourteen entries in the main series have been localized for North America and Europe, with the ninth, Tales of Xillia being announced for release in 2013, and less than half of the spinoff titles have been released abroad. While seen as a niche series in English speaking regions, the series is considered very high profile in Japan, just behind other series such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest. By December 2007, the series had sold over ten million copies, and by May 2011, it had sold 13 million units worldwide.

Examples of tales in a Sentence

  1. Gregory Pagano:

    These are tall tales of enemies settling old scores – not because they had personal experiences with him but because of what group he’s identified with, there is no greater motive than revenge.

  2. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    As we walked silently on that sandy beach, I began to realize that there was a unique story embedded in each and every grain of sand. Those were the stories of happiness and glory, blended and intertwined with equally compelling stories of broken dreams and searing sorrow. I felt that each grain was representing and presenting the story of Mother Earth, the tales of long forgotten civilizations and majestic empires, mind-boggling evolutions and revolutions, breakthrough inventions and innovations, godly acts by holy saints and horrifying genocides by evil dictators - all that once happened and then got wiped out over time, from the surface of our planet, by the omnipotent ebbs and flows of Time almighty......leaving behind those billions and trillons of tiny sand grains with counteless stories of Mother Earth.

  3. Marie Curie:

    A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales. ”

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    When I was growing up in a small village in India, the fairy-tales and children's stories led me to believe that villains and bad guys look like monsters, and they are really very rude and crude in their behavior. The movies during my generation also strengthened that perception. As I grew up and travelled around the world, I soon realized the reality that the bad guys and villains are often good looking, well-behaved, silky smooth and sharp and smart etc....often too smart to gain your complete confidence before their brutal betrayal and deceitfully back-stabbing you - when you least expect it. We all discover this harsh reality hard way, after getting entangled at least once in their tantalizing tangled web of deception, that the appearances can often be deceptive, and always too good to be true. And yet, not all the times but only occasionally, the dreamer and optimist inside us still likes to believe those fairy-tales and the happy-ending movies from childhood....

  5. Aleister Crowley:

    Modern morality and manners suppress all natural instincts, keep people ignorant of the facts of nature and make them fighting drunk on bogey tales.
