It ties with Symphonia. Symphonia has a special place in my heart, although I am aware of the terrible character flaws with the main protagonist now. Thankfully, I realized what a hypocrite he is. Abyss, on the other hand, shines out to me because the character development is so large - particularly for the main protagonist.
I have yet to find a Tales game that I'd enjoy playing as much as these two that also that has much character development in it that I care about the characters.

I've only played 3 so far including Abyss, but it is in number 2 for me.
I'll probably like Xillia and Graces more but I don't even have a ps3 --- Remember kids, cancer doesn't kill people, people with cancer kills people.

Yeah. The only other Tales I've played was Symphonia which I hated and gave up on. This time I came in with low expectations and enjoyed the game quite a bit. --- shoot the core.

Yes it is my favorite tales of game, Though i never played any other ones before. --- Jade: Perhaps children are children precisely because they do not realize they are children.
Abyss has the best story of the bunch along side Phantasia. It's used to be third until I replayed the game on my 3DS. --- "Your arms are too short to box with God!"

Out of the ones I've played? Abyss>TOS:DOtNW >.> --- My trainer card: http://s18.postimage.org/qtw7d7655/image.jpg What I look like in real life: http://s11.postimage.org/54ec25d7n/images_CAEA78_FU.jpg
Vesperia introduced me to the series, and I can honestly say, I like everyone in the party. I can't think of any other games I've played where I don't dislike/hate anyone, aside from Vesperia's. This game and Abyss are the only Tales I've logged at least 300 hours on, and I've yet to burn myself out on them. Only game in the list I haven't replayed is Innocence.
Can't even get myself to add DOTNW on the list; 13 hours of my life I'm never getting back.

Phantasia is my favorite. Do enjoy Abyss. Not fond of its free run or unknown mode though. --- http://i2.minus.com/i3URrnOg5yoy7.jpg
