@Bluespark - Another thing is that there are a lot of reviews for the PC version of Tales of Symphonia saying the PC port is broken. Maybe this was true when the game was first released perhaps, but not now with official patches. I had no problem playing this game on Steam, it was only €5.00 during a sale.
I am quite fond of the characters in this game too, but none of the skits were voiced in English which is a shame seeing as the English voices are quite good.
Another thing I quickly noticed was how similar Tales of Symphonia was to Final Fantasy X - both games follow a similar storyline and characters...
