Also not played the games yet and I'm also gonna say YES!
I've played a bit of Trails in the Sky, would have played more + other games however there's the whole too many games not enough time and all that jazz, but from what I did play of that the Trails series looks very promising. I think it's definitely worth a go if you're a JRPG fan and particularly if you like the more traditional ones.
The feels are real, trust me! And yeah it's sort of obvious I'm a JRPG fan that enjoys traditional gameplay, lol :P Hmm, so it's two for yes so far, despite neither of you playing them... still counts though! :P
