Never played a Final Fantasy game before... Is FF XIII a good place to start?

Is Final Fantasy 13 and its sequel 13-2 worth playing if I've never played a FF game before?


Start with FFVI, VII, IX or X

I say start off with FF1. I do like 13 and it's a fun RPG, but you'll be missing out on many good games in the series. I say it's best to start off the beginning of any game that has multiple numbers (minus sports games).

NO. Start with FFIV, FFT WOTL, or FFVII.

Well or he starts with 13 - Is completely disgusted by that software garbage BUT maybe he has still some energy left > Starts the good FF Games(everything that Microsoft didn't destroy aka all other FF Games) and is completely overwhelmed.
After that he will probably get sad cause we will never get such good FInal Fantasy Games as long as people support Microsoft and Call of Duty but well...

I'm starting to think these "Should i play 13" threads are troll bait. 13 has been out for a while now, surely you can find decent reviews or other information.

People just want to stir up a "Pro vs Anti" war. -__-

There is no place to start. They're all different, progress differently, have different characters, and make almost no references to eachother.

Start with whichever game. Which can include FFXIII.

As someone who has played and beat the first 10 at least a few times each, I skipped 11, couldn't stand 12 and 13 will be the last one I play unless the series does a complete 180 and goes back to its roots and what made the older games great.
