Ok, so I have heard a lot of praise, and a lot of admonishment for this game from various Fire Emblem fans.
I can understand why too, now that I've had a chance to play through it.

While it remains fairly close to the formula, the changes are very noticeable.
Even beyond asking whether you want to be a 5 year old girl or not :p
(as if I would
ever play FE without perma-death!)

Some of it was pretty cool. I liked the multiple generation aspect.
The focus on paired units annoyed me at first till I got the hang of it, then it worked pretty well.

Even the option for casual was fine for people new to the series. I know some people who got upset about that
...just don't pick it. Problem solved.
They made it easier to grind, which I don't like. Makes who get's what kill less important.
Though, as with the Perma-Death option, I can just avoid grinding.

Anyway, figured I would see what you guys had to say on the subject?
Would you like to see these, and the other changes awakening brought (like the Avatar) stay,
or should the series get back to it's roots?

For those of you who have only played Awakening, what would you like to see stay, and what would you liked to see dropped in the next FE.

Mainly wanted to get some FE discussions going in general, and this seemed like a good topic

Compared to the rest of the series, I say that Fire Emblem: Awakening is the best game in the series. I've never been a big fan of Strategy RPGS but that after playing the demo, I knew I had to play it, and I'm so glad I made that decision. I like how there's and option to not let your party members die. That was one thing that always turned me off about the series so I usually just avoided those kind of games. Also the graphics are absolutely gorgeous. This is one of the few strategy RPGs that I'd be willing to play and enjoy playing.

I am proud to say that I have played nearly every FE game, and that Awakening is probably the best, and second most innovative in the series (behind Genealogy of the Holy War.)  I loved the introduction of casual and lunatic+, even if it is ridiculously difficult. I liked the paired units, the outrealms, the spotpass and streetpass, all of that. My only complaints are those that the characters don't have feet, and that it may be a bit too easy to grind with the outrealms, but hey, it's helping me with lunatic+, so I'm not complaining.
