Ok, personal opinion, go for FFVI, Kefka is by far the best villain IMO, I absolutely loved Celes, there's the biggest playable character roster in any game so far (IIRC). And it's not a biased opinion since it's not the first game I played (I played 3 *shudder*....not my favourite game in the series) 2D graphics mean next to nothing in an FF game, as the game is mainly storyline.
But FFVIII is good too.

Yes start with 6! That one is a must play. And I like 4, but if you can't stand the graphics like my little brother then start with 9 or 10. Both of those are pretty good as well. 7 is probably one of the best too if you can get your hands on it.

Infact I even stated that I found it overrated, it's the first Final Fantasy I played due to being in Europe AND I even played it very recently! (A month back iirc.)
But yea, I'm glad you made your choice. FFVIII is a fun game. It's incredibly fun when you realize just how broke you can be. That's honest to god truth, I love FFVIII just because of the system. But the story itself is pretty clever as well (Just it may take you two-three attempts through to figure out the REAL depth to the story.) It's probably one of the hardest stories to digest but to me that's what REALLY makes it good.
I want to address an issue with 'overrated' however. The three games in the FF series considered overrated are FFVI and FFVII. These are the two people harp on about the most. FFX is up there believe me but those are the games considered 'overrated.' It's a matter of personal taste if you like the game, feel it's overrated or not and quite honestly I'm actually quite honestly shocked and horrified that a guy who wanted a game recommendation ends up having a three page thread about FFVII being overrated or not. Personally I like the majority of the games but I'm not going to rant to the end about how FFX is overrated (Because I feel it is and I personally don't care for it as much as others.)
Let's end the drama about over/underating. I'd actually like to try all of them FF games. But VII would be pretty hard to play just because of graphics: it's worser than both VI and VIII - 2D graphics are nice and pleasuring to watch on, and VIII made better 3D graph. But I'll overcome this. Graphics don't matter if there's cool gameplay.

And that scene with running from giant mechanical spider after Communication Tower gave me the most nervous 20 minutes of my life.
