Which Tales completely blew you away unexpectedly

Tales of the Legendia for me, I played that game without any expectation at all, never watched any trailer and I just bought it cause it was there in the shop. I end up enjoying the character interaction so much, and the music oh god, the best in the series. The only thing lacking is just combat, it's so-so for me but still fun to play. What's yours?

Tales of Vesperia, I was blown by both the artistic style of the game and the characters. It's definitely one of those games I wished had made it over to ps3. Since it has more content on the ps3 console.
To look at the world in a different light, look with eyes unclouded by hate.

I'd have to say this one.

I never imagined a Tales game could be so... dark and emotional.
Some might argue with me but I believe this is the darkest Tales game.

Graces, it was may way back into the series and I basically expected a crappy filler RPG to waste my time with at the time. Plus, all I saw was people wanting Vesperia/Xillia instead of "the crappy Wii game" on the little I saw of forums.

Nope, loved it completely despite the low expectations, had to laugh at those guys since then.

And Xillia 1 surprised me in the "not nearly as bad as people say" kind of way.

I may have gone too far in a few places

Symphonia mostly because it was my first Tales and I had nothing to expect from the series, so being like 10 years old, a lot of the twists blew my mind, after a certain point me and a couple friends had a sleepover and stayed up all night to finish it.

Symphonia. I was a kid when I first played it and had a feeling of being a massive game and story.

Have you accepted Raspberyl as your loli and savior?

I thought Hearts R would be a disaster.

It's now my favourite game in the series.

Tales of Xillia since I hadn't played a Tales game in a while. I played Tales of Phantasia like a year before and decided to buy Tales of Xillia since I saw it was on sale and fell in love
