Which Final Fantasy shall I play?

For example- points awarded by levelling is very random. Sometimes your guys can get 20 to 40 HP with a level up, and sometimes you'll spend time grinding only to have a measly single (*#$ HP point given to your characters.

This is in most FF games. I think they only stopped it with FFX (maybe IX I'm not sure)
It's kinda annoying as I like to do challenge runs of VII and I have to hope that stats go up the way I need them. If they don't go up how I need them then it can make the challenge impossible (or just take considerably longer)
Valkyria Chronicles is the best RPG this gen!

"This is in most FF games."

I've been playing FF games since the first one on the MSX and I've never seen any except the first that will award a single measly hit point for a level up...

If you got time and patience...

Start from I, go all the way to XIII/-2 in order, skip XI if you can't play it, so that you can get a nice appreciation of the progression of the series.

EDIT: Btw TC, this suggestion is recommended because as some said, it's harder to play the older ones after the newer ones, later games have references to past games, and my own reason, everybody seems to have their own favorite and least favorite FFs, so you won't get very reliable advice with so many varied opinions.

But 1-3, and 4 to a lesser degree, are somewhat "hardcore", so if that isn't your thing, start at 5, 6, or 7. Preferably 5 because the job system is awesome.
Look alive, you fools.
