It was seven. I remember the adverts on television, and then my sister went out with my father and returned home with this brand new thick-cased game. Me and my sisters didn't know how to attack at first until the oldest of us fugured it out! It was our first experience in general with an RPG. I used to play the game behind my sister's backs. Because I was young, they never trusted me with their things, so when they weren't in, I'd play the game, but not save the data. Funnily enough, I'd always beat bosses they were stuck on!
To be honest, my first FF was FFVII, back when I was around 9. sweatdrop
Although, I just loved the game so much, I decided to play the other ones too. I then picked up in order;
FFVI, FFVIII, FFXI, FFX, FFVI, FFIV, FFI, FFV, FFXII, FFII, FFXIII, and FFXIII-2.
It's a mess in the order I played them, but I found it enjoyable. xd
I really feel like a lot of these gamers here are lying about which game they played first to sound like some cool hipster or maybe I'm a delusional a*****e, either way, hipsters aren't cool, but anyway...
Final Fantasy 10. Second game I've ever played and favorite game of all time.
