I got a 3ds last year for monster hunter, big fan of dark souls and skyrim.sadly couldn't enjoy kid uprising little angel guy.

I heard rave reviews on zelda and fire emblem

I dont enjoy both genre, i have massive respect for zelda OOT, for it was ahead of its time, without OOT there would be no dark souls, dragon dogma or skyrim.but somehow couldnt get into OOT to complete it

I dont enjoy turn based, never got into final fantasy mechanics, love real time battles, so a bit hesitant on fire emblem.

But life is about trying new things.as a gamer, and since its the year of 3ds, i should give a chance to one of these games.

What makes you love zelda/fire emblem?

I read a lot of reviews for both, watched youtube, yet still undecided, please help

I am a Zelda fan and while I'm not a huge SRPG fan I do enjoy them now and then.

I loved what I have played of LBW's so far but if you didn't like ALttP then you won't like it, plain and simple. That still gets my vote though.

As for FE, own it, really really tried to like it, and just couldn't get into it. I may go back after I give it some time to cool off but from what I played I feel like it was massively overrated.

Where is the option to choose both.

Anyway, it depends on your preference.
I am an action/adventure gamer.
I rarely play strategy games. But for Fire Emblem, I make an exception.

Both games are awesome in their own unique way.
So, I recommend to get both.

If someone post "I don't care", they actually care VERY much.
If they DON'T care, they WON'T bother posting.

I love both. Both are my top 2 games on the 3DS. I prefer zelda though (may be bias as I love the zelda series)

Oh my. I'm not sure either are suited towards your...brand of taste, shall we say. If you don't like turn-based gameplay (how could you not?) in any capacity you won't like FE.

You will get about Double the play time out of Fire Emblem: Awakening, and to be honest now that I've played both, I think I enjoyed Fire Emblem a bit more.

I would rate:

* Fire Emblem:Awakening = 9.1/10

* A Link Between Worlds = 8.9/10

Both very good games but it depends on taste and also what your looking for at the moment.

I doubt you'd like either, but out of the two, probably LBW.

But since you probably wouldn't like it anyway, just save your money.

LBW was my 2nd favorite Zelda game after TP. (looooved that game). It barely beats out Links Awakening Dx. (not a huge fan of OoT or MM. Liked them but not a huge fan). But I'm gonna go with FE. Took me until I got bored of Pokemon X before I seriously sat down and played it. I had originally bought it like 2 days before X came out so I had something to play until my Pokefix. But now i need to buy all the DLC. So if your looking for more bang for your buck I would go with FE
