any, they all bring something unique
Most of the series is worth a look. I would personally recommend VI, and stay away from XI but that's just me.
1-10 are all freaking awsome, but to start the seires I would suggest staying away from 1,2,6, and 8. Not because of the plot as much as the gameplay.
Any game of the main series that you can get thats not 11 or 14
To start the series off, I would recommend Final Fantasy IV. That's where I started, and it's the easiest to keep up with in regards to the games in the series I enjoyed, and it's also the easiest to pick up on gameplay-wise. After that, I would recommend VI, VII, VIII, and X. XII and XIII were pretty good, too, but I find that the older games were either really great, or just simply masterpieces. But that's just me. Start wherever you see fit. 126.96.36.199 23:56, July 11, 2011 (UTC)
I recommend 7. I started with it and loved EVERY second of it. Then go to 9, 10, 10-2, 12, and if you have a PS3 get 13. It is SO Frakking BEAUTIFUL! If you are looking for a portable FF game, All 3 Final Fantasy Tactics games: War of the Lions, Advance, and A2.
