I have never touched a game in either series. I have enjoyed some strategy RPGs, like Disgaea and FF: Tactics, and the FE demo has got me intrigued, but I also keep hearing good things about Etrain Odyssey. I am leaning towards EO because none of the games are related, while I hear FE has some lore from the old games behind it. I can only get one.

dungeon crawling or SRPGs

I just wish I knew which game will have the most content. I know FE will have DLC, but...

EO4 really should be the longer game. But partial appeal of Fire Emblem is replaying the campaign on harder difficulties.

EO: challenging dungeon crawler where you create a party and draw maps, story is more in the background.
fire emblem: grid strategy game with jrpg character driven storytelling.

Neither requires you have any knowledge of the previous games.

You could learn from the lore in FE:A and it isn't required to play the old games. Most of that stuff is DLC so you pretty much have a complete standalone game with free DLC during launch and then paid DLC for fanservicey stages and characters, which aren't essential to the game.
The game doesn't have anything other than a storymode and the extra stages/characters. There's a demo out. Play that to see if you'd enjoy it.

EO4 is a first person dungeon crawler that's in a standalone package. It'll last you a long, long time with an air exploration mode and a storymode.

You could also do self imposed challenge runs if you want in both games, like only using one character or something to help add more gameplay hours.

I myself preordered both. I'm a huge fan of both series.

if you do everything,FE should be 70+ hours.

between normal and hard,you probably will not have much different playthroughs time wise,but lunatic and lunaic plus will double or triple your playtime form game overs.at turn 1
