Which was your first Fire Emblem game?

Fire Emblem has a fair few games behind it, most havent made it to the west and those that did were often hard to find.

Awakening, however, was a world wide released with enough copies to go around (which helped save the series) and so for many Awakening was the first game people played in the Franchise.

For me, my first game was Rekka No Ken/The Burning Blade/7 (the one with Lyn/that hot assist trophy from Smash).

Rekka was a hard-ass game. Awakening was friendly and forgiving to new players but Rekka wasnt. Perma death is a very real non-negotiable threat, the game is hard as nails-but brilliant...

So, which was your first Fire Emblem?

My first Fire Emblem game was Awakening, because it looked interesting and me and my sister never had heard of the Fire Emblem series before. Soon after we bought Sacred stones, too and i fell love with the series

I borrowed FE Shadow dragon from a friend but had to return it at some point. Perma-death is rough but it only happens if you beat the stage. I thouroghly enjoyed it. I didn't get any other ones until Heroes came out. Now that I've played FEH a lot, I'm definetly looking into playing more.

First I ever played was Path of Radiance, which I hilariously picked up at a Gamestop for like $25 right when the Wii era was getting started. Good luck finding a physical copy these days.

It was mostly interest brought on by Brawl, although my little brother had Shadow Dragon on the DS and said it was really good. The difficulty for PoR was a bit of a put-off at first, but I almost instantly got drawn in by the amazingly written characters and the well thought out story. Such strategic gameplay was a cherry on the top.

Tried out Radiant Dawn immediately after and have been a hardcore fan since. I haven't gone out of my way to pick up unofficially localized roms of games we never got in the west, but I've tried out just about everything else.

My first was actually Radiant Dawn, which is a bit of an odd one to start with, although I first got it as a gift. The gameplay and story instantly appealed to me, and soon after beating it I played The Sacred Stones and kept going from there. Easily one of my favorite series now.

Awakening. I got into the series a little bit after Heroes came out. Then half a year later I met someone on a discord server and he got me into Fire Emblem. Then I got Awakening in early January.

Awakening. Tried the demo for it back in May of 2013, and then picked it up that same evening. I know Awakening gets a lot of hate, but I think it was a pretty good introduction to the series for me, and I got Sacred Stones on Ambassador shortly after.

Shadow Dragon. Seeing as its a remake of the first, seemed like a good entry point. I played most of them since then but im not too big on this series. FE 7 quickly became my favorite and still is though.

I knew about FE for a while, but for some reason I barely knew anything about it. I did want to play it though, so I got the Awakening demo, liked it, and then bought all the virtual console FE games (Game Boy FE and Sacred Stones) so the Game Boy Fire Emblem was the first I bought and beat. (While cheating the heck out of it with save scums)

If Smash counts, Smash.

If not, none. I want to get one with Ike as the main character. He seems like one of the most honorable people out there

Technically, my first was Sacred Stones as a 3DS Ambassador game. I played it for a few minutes before I decided it wasn't for me at all. My first FE game that I actually put time and effort into, and beaten, is Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It's also the only other FE game I've touched. I enjoyed it a lot, even if the combat was often frustrating. I don't really have much of a desire to try the other games, though. I may keep my eye out for FE Switch, at least.
