    Best Fire Emblem game

    Best Fire Emblem games? Absolute best? Which ones would you suggest a newbie and why?

    cause we've got FF so why not some FE

    sacred stones and it's not close. it's piss-easy, but the branching class paths that were introduced with it stand as the coolest addition to the franchise to date (excluding gaiden, but it really didn't have branching class paths by any means).

    sacred stones is also the only game to date that has actually executed promotion branching well in FE imo - fates and awakening are just absolutely stupid in that aspect, as the only benefit to branching class paths is getting all the broken skills and then reclassing your unit into the most broken class into the game (see sorcerer and nosferatu spaming in FE awakening). fates has remedied this a bit, but it still suffers from the notion that a unit should have many promotion branches.

    outside of that, even though awakening has introduced many of the things that make fire emblem a completely dull series nowadays, it's still a well-executed time sink, and much better than fates in my opinion. it's basically a budget disgaea.

    thracia 776 stands as the greatest story told in the franchise. it's actually deeply engaging - every FE after it had the exact same formula (good, small country needs to defend against big, bad country going apeshit) - and then the story just went completely down the shithole with awakening and fates (plot holes all over the place and loltimetravel).

    I've only played one fire emblem game.

    Birthright 3DS.

    It's the best one. Take my words for it.

    One Million Years Daydream Ice Silkworm
    Four Hundred Thousand Years Ice Emperor Scorpion Hyotei
    Seven Hundred Thousand Years Snow Emperor Xuenu
    One Hundred Thousand Years Octagonal Mysterious Ice Plant
    Three Hundred Thousand Years Polar Ice Bear White
    One Hundred Thousand Years Sea Mermaid Princess Leah
    Seven Hundred Thousand Years Evil Eye Tyrant Emperor

    I've only played the gba trilogy, and I enjoyed all of them.

    FE6 has a better adventure, FE7 the best characters, FE8 is the one I loved the most overall.

    birthright is the worst out of the 3 Fates alone.
