I think FFX is the one you will most likely to enjoy as it has a great emotional story and interesting setting, and it is the last FF that is truly turn-based. With FFXII, the story is more political and it lacks emotional punch in my opinion, I honestly didn't care much about the characters, wherein with FFVIII I really did. FFX-2 is a bit different than FFX but its story is still ok and gameplay is really fun. I definitely disliked it when I first played it but my opinion has improved 2nd time around after I played the remaster. And yeees, more love for VIII! Not sure what it is about this game but it is still my number 1 favorite FF game, even after I played each entry except FFXI.
