Which game do you guys think would be best to introduce me to the series, and where should I go from there?

Oh man, that's a tough one. I started out with 4 myself, but 6 is my all time favorite. If you don't mind old school visuals, then get all of the ones on PSN, and just go in whatever order you want, as they are all really good games. Just don't start out with Tactics, 5, or 8, as they tend to have more advanced systems and are harder to grasp for a first time player.

My first FF was FFVIII, followed by FF Tactics. I have since played: III, IV, VII, IX, X, XIII and XIII-2. Also Tactics Advanced and A-2. VIII and Tactics are still my favorites to this day. Regardless of story, graphics or gameplay mechanics. I think if you play any of them and get into it, you'll love it forever.

Honestly, FFX is probably the most accessible game nowadays.

It'll probably be hard for a newcomer to appreciate the older games without getting their foot in the door first.

FF4. It basically redefined how turn-based RPGs were made after that. It also has one of the most amazingly composed game soundtracks of all time.

Just start your way from the beginning and work your way to the end.

If you go into any game with expectations you deserve what you get for fooling yourself. Have an open mind instead of using crack pipes like those who insinuate that FFXIII/FFXIII-2 aren't good games.

That said, i suggest you research all the games yourself instead of asking here where you are guaranteed to get biased opinions which might cause to miss a game you would've liked.
