Fire Emblem was a great series back in the day but it started to fall off after Path of Radiance, the first Ike game. I am a fan that has been with the series since Genealogy of the Holy War.

The two latest ones for 3DS, Awakening and Fates, effectively polarized the series for longtime fans such as myself and divided the **** community (especially Fates because Awakening was alright). Fates devolved the series into a “waifu”/fanfiction simulator (yeah, blow on your 3DS to blow wind in the face of your wife to raise affection with her) where the focus was on side conversations between characters which, in-turn, broke the gameplay which was already a hot mess to begin with thanks to the pair-up system. And Fates was divided into THREE separate campaigns like goddamn Pokémon Blue, Red, and Yellow. ALL of them equal levels of garbage.

Three Houses looks to somewhat remedy all of this nonsense by telling a good story with characters that actually develop, not being limited to strictly black and white mentality, and having moral ambiguity. Not only that, but actual balanced gameplay too. Fire Emblem Fates was filled with one-note gimmick characters except for the occasional outlier or two and the game revolved around the main protagonist whining about his/her family EVERY. ****. SCENE.

And THEN there was Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia which was a remake of Fire Emblem Gaiden....but the entire game was a slogfest of irritating maps and horrid gameplay. FACK.

I have NOT been enthused with the series for quite some time now and I have very strong feelings on the subject. Three Houses will be the goddamn revitalization of this series. Sorry for the tangent and rabbidry
