I was fortunate enough to play 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, X, and XII in order. Played endlessly. Still haven't plaed 1-4 yet, but I'd personally recommend starting with X.

You can also get Final Fantasy X HD, and X-2 HD Remaster on the PS Vita. I prefer Portable Consoles, had a Vita laying around, if it ever comes on Switch that'll be well worth it.

Mobile too expensive, looks on mobile market, sees about 15-20 different games nearly all the final fantasy games 1-9, can't find 8 yet.. notices final fantasy 7 for 15 bucks.. remembers back as a child wanting to just simply try 7, goes to game store and notices the price for a play station 1 game sitting proudly in the corner about 10 feet in the air, like some sort of Nationals trophy, for 120 fucking dollars. That's insane. I think the cheapest physical copy I have seen was about 40 bucks at an entertainmart, used electronics store.

For story telling, 7 and 8 are the best. For recommendations especially for new players.... I think they can only accept 10, and I don’t even think they will like turn based so in the end... only 14 15 and FF7 remake....

Final Fantasy X and X-2 should be mentioned as having Vita versions too because those both look beautiful and are portable to boot. I don't quite remember but I'm fairly certain that these Vita versions came out long before this video was released

Of course I'd say 4 or 7 but most the youth and new gamers can't take all that text reading and turn based grinding. If you weren't from that era or were never into those kind of games it's a hard sale.

My first Final Fantasy was the GBA remake of the original. It came with the second one in a single game called Dawn of souls. Could never get into 2. But the first one has been replayed multiple times

I would recommend any of the following: FF6 FF7 FF8 FF9. They're all epic and perfect for anyone who wants to get into final fantasy for the first time. The stories and gameplay are simply amazing

I'd start with the US's 3rd game. It was one of the best SNES RPG's of all time.

I would say X as it is probably the most accessable and then play VII to understand why it made the series a cultural impact and then IX as it has a lot of the Fantasy elements and if you enjoy the fantasy elements then play VI and then branch out from there.

I will always recommend VI as it has that great balance of world conflict (which you lose initially), characters' struggles, and how you journey as a player through.

My first ever JRPG was FFV, I didn't know any better how complex the job system was for an RPG, great way to cut my teeth on RPGs! I had my buddy guiding me along the whole way explaining how everything works in RPGs. FFV is a great way to jump in the deep end haha, I would say FFIV or IX are easier to learn about Final Fantasy

I started playing VII first. I loved the setting, the soundtrack, and the graphics, so I decided to start with VII. Of course, it also helped that it was the only one I owned. Then I started IX, after I realised I loved the soundtrack. And then I started playing VI, because I realised I really loved that soundtrack too. So far, each time I’ve started a new game, I’ve loved it more than the last, which is the exact opposite of what I thought would happen. I’d heard VII was the best, and then the games would get worse as I worked my way down the list. I’d say, starting with VII is good, but then jumping to IX will be a big change due to the different character customisation systems. Maybe just start with IX, as it’s my favourite, although I really find the steampunk design of VI too.

I rented Final Fantasy on nes in 1990 and fell in love . It was the first game I rented that I didn't give back . Lol , I still owe somebody for that game . The first Final Fantasy is the first one to get . It was the game that set the standard.

FFVI on Snes with the Ted Woolsey Uncensored patch is the best version. It fixes a lot of bugs and translation issues.

Don't even touch FFV or FFVI from mobile, they are garbage...I just bought FFVI because I was bored and wanted to play some old games and that thing is horrible, the art style is just so bad that it doesn't even feels like FFVI. Not to mention that horrible UI and in battle controls which feels like you were playing with a big dog's poop. They could've learn something from DQ ports for android, I have all the DQ for mobile and they have done an amazing job on that.

FF 1-3 would be recommended for study in video games. While they were good in their times, in this modern age it's not really satisfying enough. FF4-6 would also be great for video game studies but this open more to letting yourself really get immersed in the fantasy world. And these really nail it. You get compelled of what realm you're diving into. FF7-9 are those advancing mechanics, graphics, and story telling to the next level study. It is also a trilogy of dare I say of Life, Love, and Legacy. And I feel this trilogy needs to be played in order to understand where I coming from which I can't really delve into this comment. This is where passion comes more into play than just fantasy feeling. (Of course some of the older games are like this but just more modernish here.) This was a time where square was thriving so they're worth a look at some point before moving ahead to latest ff games. FF10-FF12 are the excellent choices for more modern gamers. They're the next step to closer modernization of video games but not quite there yet. Humble beginnings of a new era of gaming. FF13-FF15 are recommended for those who just love to play and not caring much about classics but rather fit their gaming style for an RPG experience for the most part. There is some departure from their usual troupes particularly gameplay style for the most part but nevertheless they warrant praise for its amazing innovation to continue venturing to a world of fantasy.

10 is definitely the one to start with. It’s got the right balance of story, game play, and customization

Unpopular opinion: I actually really like the art style of the ds version of 4 and I'm not a big fan of the art style of the psp version. But keep in mind that I kinda hate HD art and 3 on the ds was my first FF game, so I'm extremely biased.

Assuming someone is a newcomer, I wouldn't recommend anything pre-PS1 to start. My list would be: FFX-HD - Probably the most accessible game in the lot for someone new (my Fiances first videogame ever). FF7 FF8 FF9 FF4 FF6 The rest in any order.
