Etrain Odyssey 4 or FE: Awakening?

Fire Emblem is not for everyone. The appeal comes from high difficulty and permanent death (though it's now optional).

If Fire Emblem isn't for everyone, Etrian Odyssey is for practically no one, lol.

To answer TC's question. I'd pick FE: Awakening, definitely. Etrian Odyssey... bleh. Talk about bland, primitive dungeon crawlers... I tried the first two and couldn't get into them at all. From the previews this entry doesn't look like much of a departure.

both


The only correct answer in the entire topic. They even come out at different times of the month too.

find a sale on one and buy one of the earlier series of the other.

You're making the right decision with Fire Emblem.

EO4

simply because it's not Awakening


You know, the fact you don't want me getting Awakening just makes me want Awakening more.


That seems like sound logic to me. I adored Pokemon White and KI:U, so using that pattern I should enjoy FE:A just as much.

Not taking Endgame seriously is 101 for Gamefaqs.

Etrian Odyssey 4.

In fact, go back and buy the other EOs too instead of Awakening if you end up enjoying EO4. They're all fantastic games.

..Fantastic games which Europe are never getting. You better appreciate them :(


If I could get the older EOs I would.


They're doing a reprint on the 23rd or so of all three games in the US.

Gameplay difference aside Fire Emblem is probably the better overall/more well rounded choice. It has I'm assuming a much better story, character interaction, and better production values. On the other hand if you aren't one to shop online then EO might be harder to get later should you want it eventually.

I have been debating which myself, but I like my RPG to be well rounded in everything and I especially like story and good character interaction so FE is probably my choice as well.

Fire Emblem. I've never been too much into dungeon crawlers.
