Can't decide - Will I like Fire Emblem:Awakening?

#1GenericName9Posted 2/16/2013 11:18:21 AM
See I'm NOT a big RPG fan... well I like them but I don't ever have time for them. A lot of RPG's you have to basically devote your life to them to get anywhere, 2 days doing a quest that gets you a new shield or armor, things like that. I play in short intervals, I often take my 3DS to work with me and play in between jobs since I work on a commission basis, I have a half hour here, a half hour there. I never play games where you can't save anytime because of that reason. Also some strategy or RPG's have such a steep learning curve to play which I don't have time for, some you have to learn new terminology and they have their own vocabulary that you have to memorize to become proficient at playing.

On the other hand I do love games like Zelda, and apart from video games I am an avid Chess player, actually I'd say Chess is my FAVORITE game period. Also I really enjoyed playing the board game Stratego a whole lot when I was younger, and Fire Emblem looks kind of similar to that.

Those things in consideration I'm looking for some opinions, do you think FE:A is a game for me? Or no? Thanks for taking the time reading.

I would stay away from the game if I were you. FE requires a lot of time.

Not really. It may take a lot of time to beat, but one can play a single battle here, another there... and suspend the battle at any time. He said he likes Zelda and that's much more awkward to play in small intervals.

Soon to be paid DLC was the last factor that convinced me to not buy the game.

Also, I hate SRPGs with every cell of my body.

Oh come on. They're giving us a ton of FREE DLC and you're in a miff that they're charging for a few maps as well? If the "paid" DLC we got from the promotion is any indication, it's not worth getting worked up over in the least. Completely superfluous.
