Ok, I've never really much cared for Final Fantasy games, and the style of games like that, but awhile back I played FFX and it seemed alright, and I was wondering, which one is the best one to play for someone like me? Thanks.
Erm... I'd say FF8.

Competely agree with Jakkc, 7-9. If you liked 10, you'll be blown out of your mind by these three, though they are deeper in terms of gamingand length.
Slightly cooler than a n00b

7, 8, 9, and 10 are the best. you should also get 4 for gba. and if u want, theres also 1&2 for gba, but DO NOT GET X2 OR 11.
Opinions, opinions... Final Fantasies before #6 were just plain basic, even though FF5 had this nice skill-system, but it is FF6 and 7 that really hit home with enough story, mechanics, and doing. After that... Well; not much to say about them, there being so many things done wrong.
So, since everyone I've asked usually includes FFVII, I think I'll get that one. Do they make a PC version of it, cause I could swear there was one of those that I played a demo for on my PC, and if they do, is it better than the PS1 version? Thanks again.
Some people get confused with dealing with the name changes between the Japanese and American SNES Final Fantasies so I drew up this little chart to make things easier. Japanese - American I - _ II - _ III - _ IV - II V - _ VI - III VII - VII VIII - VIII Etc.
If you liked X then you'll probably like VIII, maybe IX, probably not VII. I hated VIII and X but that's just my opinion. X-2 and XI were garbage. With out a doubt the SNES ones beat out anything past VII with no contest. VI(III) and VII were easily the best with IV(II) following close behind. If I were you I'd buy Final Fantasy Origins, PS1, (Includes FF I and II), Final Fantasy Chronicles, PS1, (Includes Chrono Trigger and FF IV(II)), Final Fantasy Anthologies, PS1, (Includes FF V and VI(II)) and Final Fantasy VII - you won't go wrong with any of these. And if you liked X then obviously buy it.
46 and 2, are just ahead of me

Go get FF8, its my personal favorite of the series.
My advice get FF VII while 8 is good seven shines as the best one before ten. I don't recommend 9 i didn't care for it at all but thats partialy cuz I don't like anime. 9 is the only final fantasy released in the USA I never finished. If you've never played 7 your in for a treat it is a great game.
