Is Fire Emblem's story really bad?

Nope, the story is atrocious.
Now you're playing with power.

Holy crap at the sudden hate bandwagon on the last page.

What's wrong with preferring story over gameplay? Video games are a unique art form in that they incorporate MANY different arts together to give you the final product. And with this, there can be many different ways to enjoy a game.

If someone needs a good story in order to enjoy the game, then there's nothing wrong with that. Telling them to get a different hobby is missing the point. What makes a game's story so involving is the interactivity. For instance, two people want to know the story of Persona 4. One plays through the game, the other watches the anime adaption. These two people are going to have VASTLY different experiences, despite the story being the same.

It just reeks of elitism when you tell someone to get another hobby because they enjoy something differently than you do.

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

you are part of the problem

video games are not for you, go read/watch anything else

I sure hope this is a joke. Video games are an equally valid medium for story telling and experience sharing. While game play is an important facet to any game, so it story.

People with your views are in fact "the problem", promoting more CoD like brainless games to be released than anything with any substantial gaming "meat".

Quit gaming and start playing VNs.

I'm literally on Endgame as I type this and the story is definitely not as bad as people are making it to be. It's not the greatest story ever and at times, quite predictable, but not "atrocious" by any means. With that said, it's a fantastic game and I loved ever second of it.

Story isn't bad, but its not super fantastic either. If you're expecting more than "good guys versus the evil empire", you'll be disappointed.
