Is this a good fire emblem to start with?

Play this one, and then play the older ones (like me). Just keep in mind that each FE game it's own games.

Lest you become like Westbrick and come to the forums to expose us to his Vehement Rage about which FE is better gameplay wise and curse IS for allowing options! *gasp*

This is for you West... buddy.

The Fire Emblem games tend to come in pairs, with the two games in a pair connected strongly to each other, but only loosely connected (if at all) with the other pairs.

This game is strange as far as that goes. The previous game was second in its pair, so it's possible that this might be the first of a new pair, but if so, the second game hasn't come out yet. That said, it manages to be loosely connected to all of the other pairs. The ties aren't strong enough that you'll be totally lost or anything, but knowing the references definitely makes for a richer experience.
