It's f***ing Fire Emblem. None of them are exactly masterpieces in storytelling so stop acting like the newer ones are condemnable for theirs.

There's a world of difference between "serviceable" (FE4-5-6-7 for instance) and "outlandishly bad" (Awakening, all 3 of Fates, Echoes minus the dialogues themselves which are well-written despite serving such a poorly weaved plot).


Nah that isn't the case. For over six years now there's been an essay on just how bad Fire Emblem 7 is from a writing standpoint that's longer and more indepth on where the game fails than anyone has ever written about Awakening or Fates:

The 3DS games just happen to be the latest ones and current internet culture tends to have people apply a magnifying glass to scrutinise the new ones for the tiniest flaw even before the damn things came out. But when it comes to the older games letting them rest of the laurels of either nostalgia or new players assuming the nostalgia of those who played it in the past and spoke highly of the games know best and not questioning it.

Fire Emblem 16 will be the same case, I'll guarantee you from reveal to launch and beyond there will be some people trying to force the idea that it's "worst one yet" and people will start comparing FE13's story in a favourable light to FE16.
