Which is better Fire Emblem or Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones for the Wii U Virtual console? I'm planning on purchasing and downloading one or the other from the Nintendo shop and wanted to know which is superior or should be played first /v/?
>>
>>324332732

Fire Emblem was MADE to be the first Fire Emblem you play since it was the first one released in the west.

It's completely arguable which one of them is best but the gameplay is pretty much exactly the same in both, except Fire Emblem comes with a fucklong tutorial and is less complicated. Play that first.
>>
Both are some of the easiest games in the series. Start with FE, play Sacred Stones if you liked it
>>
You're gonna play both anyway so you might as well play them in order
>>
Honestly FE8 is much better.
>>
>>324334123
Which one is FE8?
>>
>>324333862
Are their relationships and or children in FE vanilla?
>>
>>324335134

>>324332732

Start with Fire Emblem. It's literally made to be the first one you play. The first arc of the game is a tutorial. Even if characters die in that section, they come back later to join you as Eliwood. That said, they're both great and if you like strategy RPGs, you'll probably like FE and buy SS later.
>>
Sacred Stones is a better intro.

>>324335239
You can pair certain folks up to get married in the epilogue but that's all.

Advanced Wars sucks in comparison, the story and the units, meh. Advanced Wars gets mundane really quickly. I was obsessed with that game for about a month and then got bored and haven't picked it up since, except getting the second installment and getting bored within the first hour.

Never have tired of Fire Emblem. Fire Emblem is objectively better on all fronts.

>>324338720
Which one is FE:4?

>>324339117
Genealogy of the Holy War on SNES.
>>
Both are great, Sacred Stones is a little more open because you can move around an overworld map, grind some levels if you want, and go to shops to buy things. I think it makes for a better entry point into the series for those reasons.
>>
Speaking of FE, I'm playing Awakening right now. Just to be clear, all that children inheritance stuff is aimed for the PvP, isn't it? I can ignore all that altogether if I plan just to play the campaign, can't I?
>>
>>324339326
>I can ignore all that altogether if I plan just to play the campaign, can't I?
Yeah, the kids are just for fun. You could beat the game using only MU and Chrom if you wanted.
>>
>>324339326
A lot of people will try to max out the children as best as possible when attempting an Apotheosis run.
>>
>>324336453
Advanced Wars is a knockoff of Fire Emblem that is much more mundane.
>>
sacred stones is easy as fuck, play regular fire emblem
>>324339326
if the girls arent getting married, then the kids wont show up and you miss out on a mission per kid. what skills they get doesn't really matter all that much in single player, just makes an easy game easier if you go autist mode. pair up whoever you want
>>
>>324339190
Fuck shit, that one was never re-released was it even as a virtual?
>>
>>324339326
No they also get Specials from their parents like the only way for Yarne to get Ignis is if Robin/Avatar is his father, otherwise he can't so no it's not just for MP.

Ok, thanks. It's just that I saw the Galeforce for Lucina stuff and I was getting stressed. Getting 25 levels for Sumia seems like something that requires planning, and I prefer to use all the characters I can. I'm just playing classic hard, and I plan to ignore all the kids other than Lucina, so I don't think I need to go that deep.
>>
FE8 is hot garbage, so skip that one if you must.
>>
>>324340139
Galeforce isn't required for anything. You can reclass Lucina and have her learn it herself too.

It matters who you pair off with who, make Vaike only the father of a boy, never a girl because he passes no special classes onto women like other men do.

>>324339689
Mundane? I'd say it's more interesting, because it's more about actual tactics, and less about leveling your party.

I only care about the relationships because of the children. I never was going to pair of my FE Awakening people until I discovered there were children when Chrom proposed automatically to Sully... didn't even know there were children.

I was pissed when he proposed to her because I didnt want any relationships, then when I found out there were kids I started caring and pairing people off.

Two of them have the con of little girls to wield them properly and the other falls of before even having the opportunity to promote.

That while Ogier is an irrelevant mercenary because you still have Deke going when you get him and Eckidna comes as a pre promote too early without significant enough bases for you to want to use her. With a girly con to wield axes.

FE6 is more of the same, but the RNG is more unforgiving (lower numbers have better odds and higher numbers had lower odds) so that might trip you up.

FE13 is still worth playing at least once. If you dive deep into FE you'll probably end up hating it, but you should at least hate it not just because some strangers on the internet told you to.

FE9 is pretty much all around great. FE10 has some noticeable flaws, but is still liked.

FE11 isn't great but is better than the original in every way. FE12 is better, but has some weird things that it added. Both of these are remakes.

FE2 is not worth playing.

FE4 is good if you really want to dive deep into unit individuality. No trading, everyone has their own gold pool, relationships where characters pass on weapons to their children. Not crazy difficult, but not the easiest. Crazy long maps and you can save and the beginning of every turn.

FE5 is the hardest and likes to fuck with you. Go for this one last if at all.

Sorry for the complete lack of order to this.

>FE6 is more of the same, but the RNG is more unforgiving (lower numbers have better odds and higher numbers had lower odds) so that might trip you up.
Every game after FE5, starting FE6 uses true hit, stop spreading misinformation. People speak as if FE6's is different because they miss more often, this only happens because all weapons that aren't swords, Fire and Excalibur have shitty hit rate and enemies actually have competent stats and Luck for dodging.

>>324345289
Yes but why build off of a bad game? It's not even a good game with wasted potential like tearring saga. I can only see the original FE2 stuff holding back the remake.
