well for one, it's not another sword.

How does that make it interesting?

Byleth is worse than the Corrin they so hate.

People hate Corrin because he has an ugly design, an annoying voice, and a lame personality. Byleth doesn't suffer from any of that.

How can one who has no personality suffer from lame personality in the first place?

i mean in byleth's defense, you need to have an personality in order to have a lame personality first. silent protagonists who just do "..." all f***ing game lose out to any character with personality by default. doesnt help that his actions in game were non-existence too.

literally because it's not another sword. i dont get what you arent getting. the "another swordsman" argument works on Byleth but not Edelgard. at best, she'd get "another FE char" , in which thats to be expected in YiffFAQs, where banjo seems ot be the hypest since ever for these guys. but FE is more than just swords. it'd be nice if they for once represented the series in a way that shows that.

i'm not actually sure. it sounds like it works the way i posted it. point i was trying to make i think got across of Byleth not having personaility though.

Byleth doesn't do "..." The game gives you dialogue options. He's a player insert with some voice acting.

One good game came out and people feel entitled to more characters.


Fire Emblem’s been getting good games for generations.

I'm asking a very simple question here. What makes an axe more interesting than a whip-sword? "Not a sword" as a point of interest for a character is like a presidential candidate campaigning on the platform of "not a man". There's literally nothing interesting about not being something, or superficially not following the status quo. In order to sell people on your thing, you have to tell them what it does.

Look at me. Straight in the face. And say that fates is good.

Conquest is great
- I'm a machine, designed to accomplish a task. I know why I exist and who designed me. I have a reason to live. I guess that's the difference between us.

Awakening and Fates were both good games no matter how mediocre the stories are. There’s more to things than the plot, believe me, I watch RWBY


the gameplay in those two games was trash. the only decent chapter among both of those games was conquest chapter 10 hard mode. every other chapter was just braindead "put OP super trained unit in the middle of 20 enemies watch as he solos them all"

f*** no, Endgame hates every game from Sacred Stones onward.
