OMG Fire Emblem's story is terrible imo

Granted, I'm currently playing the first GBA game. Maybe somehow this is fixed in other games. But I *hate* high fantasy that spits out so many names of places and people that I can't remember who is who or what is what. If it weren't for the stellar gameplay/music, I'd have quit this a long time ago. As a story, this is awful. Then again, I'm only on chapter 15. Maybe things pick up.

Remember names and places is hard...

This generation of gamers... sigh...
Let me guess. You didn't bother reading any of the support conversations either because there's too much text?

playing games for plot is like watching porn for plot

I've not even had a support conversation yet >_> I'm so confused about how to do that, and in a way, it seems counter-intuitive to having a good strategy because what if the position of having any two characters together puts, say, a cleric in danger because she's with a strong warrior?

I like a good story in games because I am weird.

Menu --> Support...

How can you be on chapter 15 and not know what supports are?
One of your claims is false. You are on chapter 15 or you don't know what supports are.
Supports are explained on chapter 4...
