I have some extra money on my $20 card, so I was wondering which Final fantasy should I get? I'm leaning towards VI and Tactics the most followed by VIII, IX, and origins in that order. I really enjoyed playing ten and my main hesitation with choosing is that I read the slow loading times with VI and I am unsure about the active time battle system because I like to take my time with games.

All of them.

But I'd start with V, VI, VII, and IX.

Why should I play V first is it just because it is the earliest sequentially, or is it that jumping from better to worse graphics might cause me to dislike the previous games?

Don't play V first, it's the best one and you'll miss the amount of customisation it offers in the rest of the series

Get VII or IX

VI has slow loading times and VIII is godawful.

Man people really hate VIII don't they? I say get VIII Just because everyone played VII first they compare it to that but it's really not a bad game. I prefer the junctioning over materia. Magic is for pansies. Also while VII is great it can be a little difficult to get past the bad graphics to the amazing story.

8 is my favourite by miles, but it isn't accessible like 7 is. i suggest 7 or 9 first, but definitely play 8!
