I have never played a game from either series and the only strategic RPG that I have played is FF tactics so which game should I get/is better?

fire emblem.i think disgaea games are sequential,so you'd need to play the ones that came before.fire emblem is not,and it has better gameplay regardless

personally, Fire emblem.
I tried to get into disgaea and couldn't. And it's not the story and character, I enjoyed that. It's just something with the gameplay that kind of bored me.

Nope. Each Disgaea game has its own separate story, though there are cameos from characters from the previous games. You don't need to have played any other Disgaea games to understand another's story.

Though the upcoming Disgaea game (Dimension 2) will likely change this, it's a direct sequel to the first game.
For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

The Vita version is the only version of Disgaea 3 worth owning, IMO. If you don't have a Vita go with Awakening for now.

If you don't like grinding in your (S)RPGS go with Fire Emblem; a bit of grinding might be necessary depending on difficulty, but Disgaea games are grindfests (although in a good way)

Disgaea 3. It has more depth, more customization, a funny story, and amazing gameplay.

Fire Emblem. I found Disgaea 3 to be very disappointing. I loved Disgaea.

Disgaea game (Dimension 2) is the the only one worth a speckle of interest right now.
