oh nice @Krentaris but i think u should play binding blade b4 the first 5 bruh. cuz u mean by the original kaga games u mean the first 5 right? cuz i just read he stopped making fe games after thracia, which is the 5th one.

anyway, actually u said u didnt play blazing sword either right? ok i think u should play blazing sword, then either binding blade or new mystery of the emblem then the other one u didnt do 1st here, then the first 5 but fe4 and fe5 first, cuz u played the first 3's remakes already after doing all this then so yea, then just do the 1st 3 whenever u want even awhile in the future if u want, i mean im sure the remakes are WAAAY better.

i havent played new mystery or mystery, but i played first chapter only rly of fe1, and gotta say, its remake is way better, and i saw how gaiden looks too, but didnt play it, but can say echoes gotta be much better too, them old gaiden graphics and fe1 graphics are soooo bad!

and mytery and new mystery idk, but im sure it looks rly bad too and new mystery im sure looks way better too, just like the other 2 remakes compared to their original's, so yea the 3 fe remakes are way better than their original's im almost certain, does anyone disagree and think any of the original's are better than the remakes?

also that does stink that u played radiant dawn first like cuz b4 path of radiance, oof

I mentioned having played every localised FE, so that includes Blazing Sword by default.

Though I did forget to specify that I've also played 6, 11 and 12. The Famicom/Super Famicom titles are the only ones I haven't played, with the exception of Sacred Stones.

I did find that the Greil Mercenaries had pretty poor characterisation in RD, at least if you didn't know them already. I got attached to Micaiah and the Dawn Brigade, so when we switched, I was like 'huh? who are all these people?'

Playing through PoR was like 'oh... right. now I get it.' Actually, Ike is probably my favourite lord in the series, though I don't know too much about Sigurd or Seliph (despite having researched the entire story of Genealogy, RIP)

Officially, it is Blazing Blade. This is the term that Heroes uses, and the term that FE7 itself uses to describe Durandal, the... blazing blade.

Blazing Sword is a fan name that was used for about a decade between the release of FE7 and the release of Heroes to differentiate the game (officially just 'Fire Emblem') from the rest of the franchise.. It is not strictly correct if we go by official English localizations, but as long as you get the Blazing right, everyone will know what you're talking about so it's okay.

One might point out that the Japanese uses a different term for Binding Blade and Blazing Blade, but in this case it's FE6 that screwed up. It should have been localized as Sword of Seals, to parallel the Shield of Seals (in Mystery of the Emblem), but either this was deemed unimportant or nobody official realized it until it was too late, so now it's Binding Blade and Binding Shield. Ah well.

Edit: I would like to eventually play Thracia and BB, but we'll see.

Binding Blade is pretty accessible; I would recommend it to anyone wanting to dip their toes into a JP-only game. It's fundamentally very similar to FE7, which makes it easy to get into. It's occasionally criticized for its unit balance, but this is mostly overblown; other than the armor knights almost everyone is usable. Some units are just easy mode.

Thracia is interesting, because it's both a bridge between the Kaga FEs and the later entries that weren't inspired by Gaiden/Echoes, as well as its own thing that marks the final or sole meaningful appearance of a lot of rather interesting mechanics. I find it enjoyable, if for no other reason, because of how oppressive it is -- I don't just mean difficulty, but more about how the entire narrative is stacked against you. It is a fascinating example of what FE has the potential to be, even if it doesn't get everything right. More importantly it finally has a translation patch so that isn't a barrier anymore.

nice guys, and also aw snap mb @Krentaris ! i thought u said u played all localized games SINCE fe8 not except fe8, idk why, silly me!

sacred stones is rly good man, u should play it sometime, and so u said now u played blazing blade and binding blade huh? awesome man! so u played all from fe6-15 except fe8, so all fe games except sacred stones, and first 5 huh. thats rly cool man, uve played a whole lot of em!

also u said u forgot to mention u played fe 6, 11 and 12, but technically u did already say u played fe11 tho, cuz u said u played all the localized ones, and fe11 is shadow dragon (the ds remake of fe1) which has been localized tho. fe6 and fe12 aka binding blade and new mystery tho ur right, wasnt ever localized

EDIT: oh also i see, so it is actually blazing blade, ok thx @Limit_2 ! im glad it is blade and not sword tbh, just fits better imo cuz its the prequel to binding blade so it should also be blade rather than sword

I played 3 chapters into Shadow Dragon and got so beyond bored about EVERYTHING that I just dropped it. I sort of wish I tried 12 out though since I've heard the difficulty is some of the biggest in the series on Lunatic.
