Can someone explain the appeal of Fire Emblem?

The only one I ever played was the Ambassador one. I played it for 2 hours but couldn't get into it. I see all this hype for the new one and I wonder, "Was I wrong? Is there something I missed?"

Planning a strategy is fun.

And nothing beats the feeling of beating a level on lunatic with nobody dying.

Which Fire Emblem game are the guys from SSMB in? I didn't see them in the GBA one or the newest one...

clearly you don't have the same taste as the Fire Emblem elite.

Well one of them "technically" IS in the newest FE game...just look at the demo.

Now who knows if Ike (from Brawl) is in this game.

Roy is a japan only character. Well, he actually appears in the epilogue of US copies of FE7. (The one with Eliwood. Since Eliwood is Roys dad and all.)

Marth is in Shadow Dragon. (The DS game.) Shadow Dragon also got a sequel, but it was never localized.

Ike is from the Game Cube and Wii FEs.

Ike is DLC for this game.

(There is also something else related to Ike in this game, but spoilers.)

1 3 6 11 and 12 with 11 and 12 being remakes of 1/3. 11 is the only one released in the us and quite frankly it's terrible by far the worst of the bunch released stateside. oh and then there's 9 and 10 for ike if you're talking about brawl too but nobody ever seems to care about him being in ssb
