So I've just learned about the the Fate series and was able to determine that (please correct me if I'm wrong) It's based on a visual novel. I also determined that people believe it's best to play it before watching anything else in the series, so I was hoping that somebody could let me know how to go about playing it as it doesn't seem to be on steam. Thanks in advance for all of your help.

This leads to Amazon review page of the visual novel. The first reviewer gave a great essay of information about it. Sadly, none are available at this time though Amazon.

To summarize the post Valkar links to:

1) The game has never been localized into English, nor has the publisher released plans to localize it into English.

2) Some fans put together a patch for the game to translate it into English, which requires you to first purchase a copy of the game in Japanese (via DVD-ROM), then patch an English translation mod onto the game.

3) If you do manage to play it (because you speak Japanese or buy it in Japanese and patch the game), then it is a ground-breaking Visual Novel that spawned a whole universe of spin-offs, sequels, and prequels.
