Alright, so we all have our favorite Fire Emblem game. But each one has something that sets it apart from the rest. So here's how this topic will go down.

-Name your favorite FE looking only at story.
-Name your favorite FE looking only at gameplay.

-Name your least favorite FE looking only at story.
-Name your least favorite FE looking only at gameplay.

Now for me, story wise is a tough one. FE4, 7, and 9 all have great stories. Hmm...what to choose....

Well, the first half of FE4 is awesome, IMO, but the second half is kind of generic. So we'll put that one aside. FE9's story is somewhat bland, but is enhanced by well written characters. The main villain is pure awesome. So I guess I'll be giving the nod to FE7 for story.

Gameplay: FE8 has class skills and branched promotion which is cool, but is stupidly easy. FE4 has a cool skill system, but the second half tends to yield overpowered characters if you paired everyone in Gen 1. FE5 also has this skill system, but every stat capping at 20 kills it for me. FE9's skill system is lame.
FE10 wins. Cool weapons, cool skills, interesting mission objectives, and you can move skills from one character to another.

-Least favorite story wise: FE6 and FE8 are bad IMO. But FE8's penultimate villain has a pretty good backstory. So FE6, you suck.

-Least favorite gameplay wise: FE8 is too easy. FE7 and FE6 don't offer a whole lot of extra fun stuff likes skills or interesting missions objectives. In fact, every FE6 chapter goal is seize (sans the final boss). This is bad. Sorry FE6, but I don't like you.

FE7 is best story, IMO. I might have chosen the SNES ones but I played untranslated versions so IDK, my BFF Jill.
FE5 is the best gameplay mechanics by far. BY FAR. So much fun and win.

FE8 has the worst most boring easily predicted storyline.
FE4 wasn't as fun gameplay wise for me as FE5, I enjoyed it the least because of arena restrictions among other things.

Having never played FE6, if I had I would have hated it due to blandness.

I liked branched promotions. I will definately use it in my game Very Happy

If you ever play FE6, I'm sure you'll agree with me that FE8 is better. And why did you play FE4 untranslated? The translation patch is like 98% complete.

Um I played it over a year ago. And I meant FE5, not FE4. FE5 had completely u8ntranslated text except for gameplay mechanics related things. FE4 had the first two chapters translated and that was all.

fuckwad himself just finished playing FE6 for the first time a couple weeks ago.

Best story goes to FE9. It's obvious that I love it, considering I wrote a like 90-page fanfiction for it when I played it at a young age.

Best gameplay goes to FE10 because it was to FE9 what FE8 was to FE7.

--

FE10 lost a lot of points in the story department for not having Support Conversations. Those were so integral to the Fire Emblem experience! Nearly as integral as the whole dying-forever thing.

I was going to say that FE7 loses for gameplay because I played it after Sacred Stones and really missed the Tower and being able to choose my class-changes... but then I remembered FE11. So yeah, that one loses for gameplay by far.

Have you ever played FE5 bro? FE5 was the hardest official FE ever made (Thracia 776) and had the perfect blend of strategy, difficulty, and enemy AI. It was really ahead of its time, considering FE10 came out over ten years later and still wasn't as fun (IMO) as FE5.

Plus, lol warp staves sending you anywhere on the map you want, plus they were extremely common too.

Well, many games had something that made them feel easy. FE8 had the Tower of Valni, making it easy to have overleveled units. FE9 had Ike with Ragnell and Aether... I literally solo'd the last level with him. He refused to die. FE10 had the ability to save at any point during a level.
I only played FE7 once, so I don't remember it as well... anyway, I'll definitely look into finding a translated version of FE5 and, more importantly, into finding the time to play it.

Now that my Caanoo can play FE5, I may never get a life. Seriously, this thing is soooo beast. I played 3 maps worth of FE2, I played some of my hack, some of Prime's hack, and it just doesn't get old. It's so much fun to have a portable with a screen you can actually see, and if your attention span gives out, you can just get more roms!

WIN WIN.

Plus, PSX emulation ftw.

It needs motion emulation, Klok.

All the cool kids companies are doing it..

I think they think Caanoo is an emulator.
Google showed me a Linux-based console.

You can buy one for $129 bucks on Ebay. It emulates any console from PS1 backwards. N64 is a different graphics type than PS1 because it uses a lot of floating point o0perations, so it can't be emulated very well. Most PS1 games are barely playable, though I'm having lots of fun with my FFT game, it's just a little sluggish, and animation heavy scenes bog it down a bit.

All in all, this is probably the best buy of my entire life, I shit you not. NOW, to buy the 16 GB SD card... $30 is dirt cheap too cause it's half off this week at my radioshack Very Happy
