Are there any strategy RPGs you like as much or more than Fire Emblem?

I've tried Disgaea but I don't really like how grind-heavy it is (and a bunch of the characters are kinda annoying)

I've tried Final Fantasy Tactics but it felt slow in comparison

I kinda liked the little bit of Valkyria Chronicles I've played but not nearly as much as most Fire Emblem games. I feel like I'd like it more if I played more than just 3-4 chapters

Final Fantasy Tactics is my favorite SRPG of all time. I was amazed at how great the story was for a tactics game.

I've tried FFT, Tactics Ogre, and Disgaea, but I could never get into them because I started with FE first. Elevation felt weird to me, and I like having actual characters as opposed to generics.

I did love the writing in Tactics Ogre PSP though. The portrait art was beautiful as well. I just felt that it ran too slowly, and I was at a loss on how to play it properly without consulting GFAQs. It's kinda collecting dust right now, but I hope I can figure out how to play it later on.

I loved Final Fantasy Tactics except when I grind too much and get slaughtered by random encounters in chapter 1.

I also loved Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, but it was both my first SRPG and my first FF game, so maybe it's just my nostalgia goggles.

Yeah I prefer having all my characters having some sort of personality instead of pretty much having a bunch of Avatars

I adore Devil Survivor Overclocked, better than most Fire Emblem games, save for this one and Path of Radiance. Excellent story and characters, very fun battle system with just the right difficulty, the ability to customize characters skills and fuse demons to get just the right one for a situation, pretty good music, and full voice acting.

In addition to what's been mentioned so far:

Shining Force series
Advance Wars series
Yggdra Union, Blaze Union, and Gloria Union.

Valkyria Chronicles blows most strategy games out of the water for me. Then Devil Survivor. FFT and FE are about tied - FFT would be higher if it moved as quickly as FE.

I'm not 100% sure, so don't quote me on this. But I don't think the purpose of the censorship was to ruin time-traveling Hitler's fun. - Curse
