Fire Emblem Awakening is quickly becoming the FFVII of FE series.

Am I the only one who honestly didn't like VII? I'm not a part of any "cycle" or anything. I just didn't like the characters, and found the gameplay to be "meh."


Yeah, I agree. I just think it's... okay. This might be due to the fact that I didn't grow up with it, not having a PS1, but I don't feel the game has aged as well as the other games in the series (by contrast, I love FFV, and I certainly didn't play that one when it was new).

Back to the topic at hand... actually, FE7/Blazing Sword/the first one in the US did suffer this sort of treatment at first, particularly from certain Judgral (FE4/5) fans. Obviously not as large a scale, and the dislike has died down (a lot of people consider it the best of the GBA games), but yeah, not the first time this has happened.

For the record, I'm a huge FE fan (having played FE7 when it was new and getting hooked) and I love Awakening.

uh, kind confused what you mean
FF7 gets more hype then it's NEWER FF games
FE:A is the newest FE game
I don't see the comparison?

FE: A will probably introduce a lot of 'new' people to this series, sort of like how FFVII did back in the day.


This would include me. I [my dad] bought me FF VII on a whim because I thought the cover looked cool. It was the first RPG I really spent any time with and was instantly one of my favorites ever. I printed out the entire guide via CheatCodeCentral back then too because my computer wasn't reliable enough to get to the webpage consistently :p

Now I am going to play FE:A and if I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed FF VII, I don't care what people say in a few years.

Oh, it's undoubtedly the most overrated FE ever. What people don't seem to get is that overrated doesn't mean that it's good or bad, it just gets more credit than it truly deserves.

Just watch, in 2 or so years everyone will call this game the most overrated title in the series, and previous games are "far superior"


So, in 2 or so years everyone will act like Endgame?

Because I know he will come in no matter what, inb4 Endgame suffers a heart attack

On Topic I haven't played many of the Fire Emblems but I think this is the title that'll get me to try others in the series like FFVII got me to try out the series there. (Yes I was an FF noob and VII was my first game though IX was the first I beaten)
