I've been playing Fire Emblem since I was 7. I have a lot of good memories of the series, and it's one of my favorite game series of all time. I am a complete sucker for the games, and I plan to buy a Wii U for the sole purpose of playing Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem. (I've never even played Shin Megami Tensei.)
My favorite of the series is a tie between Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn.
My other favorite game series' are Soul Calibur, Pokemon, Final Fantasy, Silent Hill, and Golden Sun.
