Hi Jarrad and welcome on board.
As off topic, i would love to visit at Australia. I wana see kangaroos and all those huge deserts you have there (i understand if you think me silly for seeing desert (nothing lol) but im from land of water and forrest).
Road to become game developer who creates stuff like FF is loooooooooooooooooooong.
Years and years of learning, stubborn and selfish learning but for sure, if you keep your motivation, only time is your obstacle :)

Hi Jarrad, welcome to Game Design Novice. You can't make a game like Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy VII+ by yourself. Such games takes teams of people years to make, which also requires a budget of millions. Right now, you should focus on more simple games, like Final Fantasy III or Dragon Warrior.
You have two options :
Learn to program (good).
Use a RPG maker (bad).
Let me know which you want to try.
Basic4GL and FreeBasic are pretty much the norm around here. I recommend starting out with FB to learn the very basics of Basic, and then turn to Basic4GL. There are so many options now though, but I recommend either of these .
1. The BASIC way.
2. C# + XNA
