The first Final Fanasy game

Well lately, I just got an increased interest in the FF series, but the only problem is that I need to know which one to play first, since I'm not an RPG expert yet..........however it can't be 10-14, because I don't have those consoles............. thanks!

You don't need to worry about playing them in any kind of order since none of them really continue into the next.

The very first one is dated and kinda boring to be honest. It's so old that it's missing lots of stuff most modern RPG fans take for granted. They made an updated version I believe but the game is still not fantastic. I still would suggest you play it but don't expect some grand story and exciting combat.

FF2(US, 4 in JP) is a good one to play. It's one of my favorites and I think it's got a good story and character development(for the time). It's pretty linear though.

FF3(US, 6 in JP)is one of the best in the series. It has good characters, combat, story, ect. Anyone interested in FF should play it.

As for the rest, I liked 7 but it's not for everyone and the graphics look horrible now. I hated 8 but some people love it. Personally I think it spends too much time on emo characters and cut scenes but that's just my opinion. 9 is good and it moves away from the flashy crap in both 7 and 8. I thought 10 was garbage, 11 was fun, 12+ I didn't bother with, didn't look appealing at all.
