Tales of the Abyss for 3DS. I was getting a 3DS for my birthday this past Spring because of KH3D, but I didn't want to get it and leave it alone. I heard the game was a great JRPG so I got it. Best decision I ever made when it comes to purchasing games. I loved it and it led me to buy Vesperia and get involved in a little bidding war on Ebay for Symphonia.
I really liked the graphics even though they're from six years ago. Luke was a jerk at the beginning but I still liked him and wanted to give him a chance. He's one of my favorite Tales characters besides Asch, Yuri, Kratos, and Zelos. Jade was hilarious. I loved his sarcasm and Kirk Thorton did a really great job playing him.
The battle system was fun and addicting and I liked how you get EXP and Gald after defeating a boss (unlike Final Fantasy).
The music is beautiful really. The soundtrack is second to FF7 in my book. Karma is a great theme song and Tear's Fonic hymn is beautiful. Mirrors, Meaning of Birth, and Wish and Sadness make my heart stop and send chills throughout my body. And also the battle theme reminds me of Sonic Heroes which is part of my childhood.
Dollow, if you love Graces, trust me you'll love Abyss, Vesperia, and Symphonia. You might even like them better in fact.
