Which Fire Emblem game is a good game to start with for a newbie???

#1HellsingOrgPosted 1/14/2013 2:27:07 AM
Never played one but I want to get into the games.

I only have access to the free GBA one they gave to 3ds ambassadors and I could get the new one coming out for 3ds if thats a better one to start.

Sacred Stones is pretty newbie friendly, especially considering you can go to optional maps to grind pretty much any time you feel like it.

I don't want to play like the 5th game or something and not know anything about the characters or stuff.

Nah, most of the games aren't connected with each other. Sacred Stones, in fact, is completely standalone.

the first 6 games never left japan... FE7 (known as fire emblem in the west) was the first game to reach US shores, which is the best FE game... sacred stone sucks because its too easy, good for beginners but sucks for veterans

nah usually Fire emblem games have standalone stories like final fantasy although some are connected to other FE games by being an offspring or a friend of the past heroes etc.

FE 1 did receive an enhanced port as Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon on the DS.

Like others have said, most the games are stand alone games that never have more then 2 directly related. So story wise, you'll be fine.

Also with that said, I'd recommend Fire Emblem on the GBA (it has no subtitle outside Japan) (first game to be released over seas) because it has a very elaborate tutorial in the beginning.
