Hmm, it seems that only a few people here like final fantasy, before I say anything the name of it is Final Fantasy not Final Fantisy, I don't mean to offend you or anything i'm just correcting you :) Well, for the DS you can get FF3 and a FFXII game, it's a different game than the one for the PS2. For the PSP you can get a very good game which is FF7 crisis core and a game that will be coming out for PSP which is FF Dissadia, it is suppose to have characters from the first 10 FF games! Thats pretty much everything that you can get on DS and PSP. You'll have a good time playin FF! :D

Final Fantasy VII on the PS is (and probably always will be) the best FF.

The FF games on handheld consoles are never as good as the ones on other consoles.

You can also buy a GBA remake if you've got a NDS, remakes of the first FF, FF1 & 2 are very old school : FF1 has got an inexistant storyline and empty characters and in FF2 there are no levels and experience. FF3 (DS) is a bit like FF2 but with a job system and levels with experience.

FF4 and FF6, are more elaborate, they're two versions of FF4 you can run on a NDS : FF4 GBA which is very close to the original one and has a nice bonus dungeon and FF4 DS which has got 3D graphics, some new skills to learn and parts of the storyline has been added, but the bonus dungeon from the GBA version has been removed and wtf musics are very badly orchestrated. I don't have FF6 but I heard it was great and that it has a job system and lots of playable characters.

FF5 has got very good job system and gameplay but its storyline really sucks =x

NES and SNES FF remakes are the only true FF you can get on these handheld consoles, all the others are spin-offs :\

The best FF games are FF VII and FF VIII, my personal favourite. Other FF games widely recognized as really outstanding games are FF IX, FF X (although I personally found it a tad dull), FF VI and FF IV. A good game to start, I suppose, could be FF VII, because it was the first 3D Final Fantasy game and it also boosted the popularity of the series an awful lot. However, you can only get that on PS1 or an illegal copy on you PC :laugh:

So, if you want something that you can play with either DS or PSP, I recommend getting FF IV for DS. The first Final Fantasy games were super hard and had no storyline, so I don't recommend getting them. FF III is pretty good, but also very hard.

It's really up to you. Go to some place with reviews (IGN or someone of the like) and check out what kind of reviews each one has gotten. Then, by those reviews, you can pick the one that suits you most. If you ask us, we'll just keep giving you our opinions, and that might not really help at all. For example, I love FF VIII, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. You should get to know something about those games and decide after that.

It kind of depends on your experience with RPGs as some FF games can be rather hard. I would have recommended you just go straight to FF6 but the only readily available version is the GBA version which isn't that great of a port. FF4 on DS is a pretty good remake and will satisfy you if you're fine with the classic sword and sorcery type. If you don't like that stuff then start with FF6 as that was the beginning of all the futuristic aspects that now make up the series.
