Final fantasy noob

So I have never played any of these games, though I love RPGs and play games like skyrim, oblivion, Morrowind, fallout, and the tales games. If I wanted to play one of these games which should I start with? I'd prefer one that is pretty low price.

Final Fantasy XIII-2. It's cheap used or new.

if you're willing to play one of the older school ff games, 6 and 7 are good. i didn't like 8 and i haven't played 9. 10 is ok. 12 is my favorite, but that one seems to be a hit or miss with some people. 13 is whatever.

IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX

^Personal favs. You should play them.

X and XII are both very good too but very different to each other.

X - More straight forward story, decent mini games and tons of sidequests (especially in the PAL version) A bit linear for quite a while though and the voice overs are a bit meh to be honest.

XII - More political/war/humanity story. Not that many mini games but it has dozens of hunts, hidden espers and a gigantic world to explore. Voice acting is superb, miles better than X and probably some of the best voice work in the series.

Final Fantasy Tactics is a very good choice as well. Fun battle system and great story. You should check that out too. And, even though its not Final Fantasy, you should play Chrono Trigger if you havent already.

TC, I suggest you go ahead and play all of them, in whatever order. IMO every FF is good, and the series gets better with each game. Though VII is pretty much considered the pinnacle. You can find most of them on PSN for very cheap prices, so you have no excuse to try a few out if you're really interested.

If you play all of them, I recommend you start from FF1. Some of the changes from VI and on may make the earlier games less fun for you.
