I missed yesterday because I fell asleep after dinner and didn't wake 'til after midnight. Whoops.
FE4. Seisen no Keifu
. When I got into FE fandom online, there seemed to be two factions-- the one that worshiped FE4 and held all Stateside-release games as inferior, and the one that worshiped FE7 and appeared to reflexively knock each successive release for not being FE7.
Now we have a Tellius faction out there on the internets, too, but the FE4 zealots haven't gone away, and you see their handiwork everything someone pops up proclaiming that Sigurd is the Best and Most Popular Lord EVAR and how it's a high crime that he's not included in SSB:Brawl like that pansy Marth and flash-in-the-pan Ike.
These people thought Sigurd would be the first DLC character release for FE13, too, and boy was my prickly heart glad when that turned out to be Starlord Marth.( Myths and debunking )
FE4 makes different demands on your attention span, your weapon-allocation strategies, and your deployment methods than "normal" FE. At this point it may well be the franchise oddball, given that world maps and zombies are now a running thing. But I do have to wonder if people who claim this is "the best" FE have played it-- not a hack, not an expansion, not some lulzy saved file, but the actual game. And then I have to wonder if they've played any of the rest.
