Is Fire Emblem's story really bad?

I care more about story than game play so.....

It's pretty meh. I would not suggest it for it's story. All FE games have pretty blah stories in my opinion though.

I haven't played it but I keep hearing that the story is terrible. Some guy on the Tactics Ogre board said he sold the game due to the Disney-like story.

the story is pretty good... until they throw a bunch of paradox filled nonsense at you. Its okay if youre in it for the gameplay...

Children from the future pretty much mean that continuity is gone and never coming back, hahaha.

Disney, though? I think not.

Anyway, the story of MY game is that my tactictian and Tharja had a baby and her name was OH MY JESUS WHERE DID ALL THIS BLOOD COME FROM. That's all I need. :D

Glorious spoilers.

Report, or not report? Hmm...

Saying that the game allows mating = spoilers? Whatever.....

It's really forced, but it's the better story among Nintendo's first parties. And the characters are great.

to be fair, its very hard to talk about why the story is bad without getting spoiler-y.

It really depends how you define "terrible". Fire Emblem's plot is perfectly serviceable, gives you enough reason for why the battles are happening and all that, but it's not especially deep or engaging. That, in my mind, doesn't make it terrible - The Phantom Menace has a terrible plot. Fire Emblem's is just average at best, overall inoffensive, but very much overshadowed by the combat system and the support links.
