Which to play first if I've never played any of them?

Tales of the Abyss is the least impressive of the three.

Skies of Arcadia Legends is great.

Chrono Trigger is cannon.

Skies of Arcadia and Chrono Trigger are among the greatest RPG's of all time.

In comparison, Tales of the Abyss is pretty bad, or mediocre at best.

Chroino Trigger first, because its Chrono Trigger.

Skies is OK, I loved it back in the day, and the ship battles were fun, buts its standard turn based jrpg fare.

Tales of the Abyss is great, I prefer Graces and Symphonia.

My personal bet would be Skies of Arcadia.

Chrono Trigger

SoA I never really got into, I don't know what the big deal is.

I've only played part of Tales of Symphonia and the characters were too annoying, but the gameplay was kinda fun. I wouldn't mind giving Abyss a try eventually.

none of the above, they're all horrible abominations

ESPECIALLY CT, it's about three kids from the middle ages trying to stop a cosmic horror that the entire world's military might couldn't stop in 1999

.....and succeeding

you need a prime example of how stupid jRPGs are and how stupid jRPG characters can be? (going 1999 with a winged time machine results in the heroes out of nowhere deciding to suicide crash into the cosmic horror, there isn't even a "Yes/No" choice, they don't even give it a second thought, they just up and ****ing do it, and unfortunately, they do survive the impact) the lovechild abomination of FF and DBZ (Toriyama himself did the character designs, all seven of them! I think he might have done the writing too considering one of the subplots involving the Goku clone.....) is your interactive movie!

CT has 12 different endings all worth playing a new game+for. Other games NG+ are a total joke comapred to it. Now that said you should probably start with Skies of Arcadia since if you play CT there is so much to do you will probably just drop the other two. Abyss is skippable.
