I played the other GBA Fire Emblems but never came around to beat them. So I would consider myself a newcomer. --- Official Light Director of the NDF/KDF/PDF/IDF Playing: Cave Story (3ds), Fire Emblem: Awakening (Soon).
Ive played and played all of the localized games except the DS ones(tried, terrible games) over and over more times than i can count, except SS. I beat that once and had to force myself to beat it cuz it was so awful to me. The first half of it was good, then it got lame. The tower was boring and repetitive grinding. The skirmishes were too. But thats just my opinion. I guess i just like story stages more.
My fav's were 9 & 10. Ive beaten 9 probably 11 times iirc since i unlocked Bryce and used him. And RD 5-6 times. Im totally loco for this series @_@ --- If ignorance is bliss, you must be orgasmic~ PSN: ScarletDevilI( L [undercase] + i [uppercase] )
i don't know if i count as a veteran because i'm pretty bad at the games but i played path of radiance until the late 20's then i got to a mission i couldn't beat because of dragons and as a noob i mainly used titania. I'm in like the 6th chapter in fire emblem and im in like chapter 4 in sacred stones but i think i've improved now and i can do hard on awakening classic.
