Literally the Judgral chronology slayed me!
I knew for years that, based on how I generally play Fire Emblem, and what has changed since FE4 came out, I was going to be EXTREMELY intimated by playing Genealogy of The Holy War, or Seisen no Keifu. And when I read the chronology, my first thought was, “I know it gets dark, but holy crap, this dark??!?” Then the prologue began with a longgggg story that I didn’t register because I knew from the get go I was not ready to play the game. I was just gonna go check it out, play with it a bit, and call it a day. Once actual action happened, I was scared to bring Sigurd into attacking anyone. It’s only the prologue!
But yeah, the biggest reason for the intimidation, aside from it being Super Famicom graphics and limitations, is the controls actually. Using a computer is gonna take a while to get comfortable with. It was the same for Shin Monshou No Nazo, but you factor in the difficulty level (and that I can’t do math), and the size of the map, I was done.
So Fe4 boys and girls. I will take the challenge again…but I’ve been playing through the Tellius Saga, so I want to focus on that first. I beat Path of Radiance, so expect some articles on that before I get a chance to talk about its sequel, Radiant Dawn.
