I like Advance Wars more since it's just pure strategy and you can take more risks. The multiplayer is also awesome. Really hope for a new one.

I can't even really compare them like this - they operate so differently even though I guess they're all strategy games.

Fire Emblem hands down. Been playing it since the 1st.


On the other hand, i'm still sick of that bastard Will and his " there's life, there's hope there's hope there's hope hope hope " quotes.

I'll say Fire Emblem just for the jrpg elements, but I love Advance Wars about equally. Sometimes it's nice to have a turn-based strategy game where there's no RNG to inevitably laugh at your pitiful attempts.
Had a Street Fighter signature for four years, but Crapcom doesn't deserve such recognition anymore.

FE for the single-player, AW for the multiplayer (although Days of Ruin has an excellent campaign)

I don't enjoy Advance Wars, I dislike being unable to connect to my units and the resource management is something I struggle with constantly.

All three Fire Emblems I've completed are masterpieces, and Awakening is looking to turn out that way too.

Never been crazy about either, but Fire Emblem seems a bit less fair to me.

The RNG leveling in Fire Emblem seems frustrating and every Fire Emblem game I've beaten has come down less to strategy than to having enough units to throw at the final boss and hopefully kill him while each unit hopefully survives his counterattack.

I like Advance Wars way better than Fire Emblem because its a pure strategy game without grinding for powerfull units.

Fire emblem is fun, but Advance wars has much better gameplay.

I just wish the graphics hadn't gone downhill. AW1 and 2 for the gba had colorful, well animated sprites, both in battle and on the map. Duel strike for the DS reused the same sprites, but added an ugly mode-7 scaling effect. Days of ruin has the best gameplay by far, but an ugly artstyle that hides the trees and boring battle sprites with more mode-7.
