  1. Officially hyped for the 4th Choose Your Legends Poll! I am excited to see who everyone decides to go all in on this time around. That being said, I definitely know who I am supporting with full force... Hopefully my glowing praise and opinions can inspire all of you to vote for him as well... All 7 of my votes are going to perhaps my favorite lord in the entire Fire Emblem series... the Scion of Light, the 光の公子, the descendant of Baldr himself, and the heir to the Holy Sword, Tyrfing, Seliph. I'll spare a college-level essay describing how much I love this character, so I will give a short summary instead. Seliph is not only a character with numerous virtues and amazing qualities, but also a character who faces numerable hardships throughout the game that only add to his backstory and personality. Having to fight the entire empire of Grannvale along with numerous other lands allied with it is a task that has many similar iterations throughout the series, but I, personally, love the story that FE4 presents more than any other. Not only that, my boi has NO alts. For the sake of Jugdral, Grannvale, and all of the poor citizens under the oppression of the Loptyrian Cult, I call upon all of the FE4 fans out there! Get this man into Heroes! Regardless of the outcome, however, I am excited to see who everyone votes for in the final result! Best of luck to all of the characters in the current running!
  2. I absolutely love that idea of being able to start from the Second Generation after beating the game!! I am the player who personally prefers to marry the First Generation characters, but I definitely am interested in using the substitute characters! I think being able to immediately access the Second Generation would a great chance to experience both sets of characters without having to redo the first half of the game!
  3. Thanks for the nice feedback! I really appreciate it! Of course on the biggest things that I, personally, would love to see in the FE4 remake that I didn't mention (due to the massive fan splits in opinion and my desire to not start a huge sub-discussion) is the possibility of including an FE5 remake in the game as well. I can understand fans' disapproval of the concept of including both games in one, but I find the positives to outweigh the negatives. For starters, as much as I love the story of the Jugdral Saga, it is very complex and deep. So much so that it required two games to fully grasp the situation going down in the Thracian Peninsula, just to give an example. Thus, to combine both remakes into one gives the player the chance to experience both sides of the story without waiting for an individual release of an FE5 remake. Secondly, I believe that it would be a perfect opportunity for Intelligent Systems to help newer players truly understand what the Jugdral Saga is all about. What better way to promote one of the most interesting and gripping stories in the Fire Emblem than by giving the ENTIRE saga to fans on one Switch (or 3DS) cartridge? I just think that it would be to Intelligent Systems best interests to take their worst selling entry in the entire series and stick it with an eventual FE4 remake as extra, or even post-game, content. That way, fans would be able to experience the entire Jugdral Saga without having to buy an FE5 remake separately, get frustrated by its difficulty and differences from FE4, and ask, "Why didn't they just combine this with the FE4 remake?"
  4. Believe me, there are plenty of ideas that I would love to see implemented into an FE4 remake. Many of them have already been discussed by the previous members, so I'll keep it short and sweet. Story: FE4 has, in my opinion, one of the best stories in the entire series. With so many characters with complex and deep backgrounds and profiles, being able to expand each of those characters' stories with more dialogue and support conversations would be wonderful. Also, create more opportunities for the player to learn about the 12 Crusaders. I loved learning about the descendants of the Crusaders, but I think it would cool to have some more background on the original wielders of those OP weapons we got to use in-game. Music: This is obvious, of course. Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia received a wonderful remake of the original Yuka Tsujiyoko score. Do the same for the FE4 remake. I want to hear all of my favorites in a new orchestrated version. Gameplay: I loved all of the gameplay ideas already discussed, so I really don't have too much to say in this regard. I especially love the idea of keeping the original sizes of the maps, but creating special seize maps when the player attempts to seize the castles held by enemy bosses. Fire Emblem: Thracia 776's Tahra Map is a perfect example of this. Just make the PLAYER the one trying to seize, and you have a great new spin on the original idea.
  5. Yeah, I definitely understand what you're saying. That's my mistake. I won't post such a lengthy description with little discussion here again. Sorry about that!
  6. Throughout my life-long affinity and deep love for video games of all genres, I have always taken a special appreciation and respect for the incredible soundtracks some of my favorites have to offer. And to a greater degree, the men and women behind the magic. I remember always playing Pokemon Pinball: Ruby and Sapphire on my GBA when I was kid and only listening to the music during long plane rides. However, as I kid, I did not have NEAR as much appreciation for these pieces as I should have. Only when I became a high school band student did I truly do more research into the masterminds behind some of my favorite tunes from childhood through adolescence. Only when I had a better understanding of music and a stronger appreciation for composers did I learn more about these people who helped make my experiences with video games that much more incredible. You have the man behind some my most favorite pieces in Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess that terrified me when I was in elementary school: Koji Kondo. You have the man behind the pieces that made me cry when I played through Final Fantasy VI: Nobuo Uematsu. But it is the most recent addition to my list of absolutely beloved composers on which I would like to focus today: Yuka Tsujiyoko. Ever since I started playing Fire Emblem back when I was high school freshman, one of the biggest factors that kept me coming back (and STILL keeps me coming back) was the incredibly catchy, atmospheric, and medieval-sounding music. I have fond memories of playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl and hearing some of the most classic and recognizable Fire Emblem pieces to date. I always wanted my brother to pick "that cool song with the guitars" whenever we played on a Fire Emblem stage. That was akin to what I would say, because childhood me did not know that that piece was called "With Mila's Divine Protection." Though, it was not until I became a die-hard fan of the series in late high school that I learned about the mastermind behind this and many other famous pieces in the series: Yuka Tsujiyoko. My love of Yuka Tsujiyoko's work in the Fire Emblem series really grew when I started to play many of the older games in the series. This games' soundtracks were some of her best, in my opinion. Not only that, I believe that her work in these games helped create them into the incredible experiences that they were, and still are, for many young and older gamers. Personally, my love and passion for Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War would not be as strong without the incredible work Yuka Tsujiyoko put into its score. To me, FE4 is masterful at not only creating a great game, but also an almost movie-like experience. The story, characters, and of course, the incredible soundtrack, work in perfect harmony to create an experience on the Super Famicom that can grip players and drag them into the lore, story, and history of Jugdral. That exactly what happened to me when I heard Yuka Tsujiyoko's incredible soundtrack during my first playthrough of the game. Pieces such as each main chapter theme were not incredibly pleasing to the ears, but they also matched the theme of the story so well. I loved how each army in Jugdral received their own themes! It fits with a game series that focuses on medieval warfare and history so well! My favorite pieces of hers in FE4 have got to be "Dance in the Skies," "Doorway to Destiny," "Crossing the Desert," "The 2nd Grannvale Army Theme," and of course, the ever classic "Fire Emblem Theme." But I played FE4 over 20 years after its initial release. What about the first Fire Emblem game to have been released for both Japan AND the West? Well, Yuka Tsujiyoko lent her skills for that game as well. Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword has so many classic pieces in its soundtrack, that I can only imagine how satisfying it must have felt for people to experience them for themselves back when the game first released back in 2003/04. For Westerners to be able to experience not only the incredible gameplay of Fire Emblem, but also the incredible music for themselves for the first time is simply incredible to me. Once again, Yuka Tsujiyoko does an incredible job at creating the incredible medieval-themed soundtracks that the series is known for, but with the incredible GBA sounds present in Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. While I still prefer the soundtrack present in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, I cannot deny that the soundtrack of Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword has perhaps some of the most recognizable pieces in the series. Pieces such as the first "Fire Emblem Theme" heard by Western audiences, "Together We Ride!," and the incredible battle theme are synonymous with the series name. And thanks to the Sound Room present in the game's Extras menu, fans can listen whenever they need their fix of the sweet sounds of FE7. Though Yuka Tsujiyoko has settled into the role of Sound Supervisor in the more recent entries of the Fire Emblem, I am incredibly happy that she is still serving an integral role in making the series as great as it can be. With the more recent entries in the series still having the phenomenal music that Fire Emblem is known for, I am ecstatic that the new composers at the helm of the soundtrack ship are doing wonderful work! As time passes on, they, too, will be known for their numerous contributions to the Fire Emblem series. One could argue that they already have! But I will always have an affinity and love for the work done by Yuka Tsujiyoko. Ranging from the FE songs that I heard when I was a young child playing Super Smash Bros. with my older brother, to her incredible work in my personal favorite entries in the Fire Emblem series. The works and legacy of Yuka Tsujiyoko will always be, in my opinion, one of the many factors that helped make Fire Emblem the great series that it has been, and remains to be to this day. Who are some of your favorite Fire Emblem composers? What are your favorite FE soundtracks? Please let me know your own thoughts and opinions! I would love to hear what you all think!
  7. Recently, us Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War fans were blessed with a new excuse to spend all of our hard-earned orbs. A recently released Legendary Heroes banner presented Julia: Crusader of Light. Voiced by Cassandra Lee Morris and designed by sachie (茶ちえ), she was certainly cause for major hype for me. More so because there has been a recent lack in Heroes from the Jugdral Saga being released. Needless to say, I spent my hard-earned orbs and was overjoyed when she was summoned. I then proceeded to immediately place her on my Jugdral Team along side Mareeta, Lewyn, and my +10 Seliph. However, once I saw that Julia was a Legendary Hero, I began to ponder something... Why did Intelligent Systems pick Julia over other notable characters from FE4 and FE5? I am certainly not complaining, as I would unreasonably freak out if ANY character from FE4 or FE5 became a Legendary Hero, but when I think of other characters that may be more recognizable than Julia, I immediately think of Seliph and Leif. I just thought that these characters would've been Intelligent Systems' first choices when picking a representative from the Jugdral Saga to make a Legendary Hero. That being said, I hope Intelligent Systems continues to create more FE4 and FE5 Legendary Heroes, but I have a question for everyone. Who do you think will be the next Legendary Hero hailing from the land of Jugdral? I would love to hear everyone's thoughts and opinions, as well as who YOU would like to see come next!
  8. So, this may sound kind of strange, but I recently had a dream about an entirely new kind of Fire Emblem game. Surprisingly, it was actually kind of vivid. Basically, it went like this: It was an online battle set on a massive map consisting of three different and distinct factions (Red, Blue, and Green). One of the factions was made up of entirely flying units, while another consisted of armored units, and the final one had all cavalry units. It appeared that each faction had a leader that was carefully coordinating and ordering units to attack the other factions. Using strategy, one of the factions eventually took over and captured all of the enemies' forts, lands, etc. Thus, that leader was declared the winner. I have always entertained the idea of an online-strategy Fire Emblem game, but I never knew what it would look like. Until now, that is. Of course, I do not expect this kind of FE game to ever be made, but I think it would certainly be an interesting spin-off game if it ever were created. But what are your thoughts? What would your opinions of an online FE game be? Do you have any ideas on how to create such a game? I would love to hear what you all think!
  9. Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War is celebrating it's 23rd birthday this year. But based on some of the latest information about the anticipated Fire Emblem: Three Houses, it would seem that Intelligent Systems has decided to give a big present to the FANS of FE4 instead. Recently, it was announced that the "Holy Bloodlines" system from the Jugdral Saga would make its return in Three Houses. As a huge fan of FE4, I am incredibly excited that Intelligent Systems decided to bring back this huge gameplay and story aspect that, in my opinion, made Genealogy of Holy War stand out among the other entries in the FE series. A while back, I wrote an article about this very possibility. I wrote about my own feelings and praise for the "Holy Bloodlines" system while discussing how it could greatly improve the story and gameplay of future Fire Emblem games. Along with this, I also asked for the opinions and thoughts of other members. How do feel about Genealogy of Holy War's "Holy Bloodlines" system? Would you like to see it replicated? Needless to say, the responses I received were very mixed. There were plenty who shared my sentiments and praise of the system, but there were also plenty who were on the opposite spectrum. Despite my love for the system, I completely understand the arguments presented by the other members. The "Holy Bloodlines" system creates an expansive and very complex network of characters; many of which are bonded by either blood or friendship. It creates a large network that encourages character development and separate goals not related to the central plot. According to some members, this expansive story network is simply too large and complex. Despite my love for this expansive story, I do understand the argument presented. While the gameplay of the FE series and the difficulty of some FE games is what primarily keeps me interested, the story, characters, and character development itself are incredibly interesting to me. In my opinion, FE4 checks off all of these requirements and, as a result, it is my favorite installment in the series. While I believe the reasons for disliking the "Holy Bloodlines" are reasonable, I believe that Fire Emblem: Three Houses can do nothing but benefit from this implementation. My beliefs are slightly similar to why I believe the system worked so well in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. First of all, I think it is clear that the gameplay will most likely receive the most attention from this new implementation. I am sure that there will be key story aspects related to the "Holy Bloodlines," but Three Houses is not Genealogy of the Holy War. FE4's story is almost entirely centered the "Holy Bloodlines." I feel like Intelligent Systems wants to create an entirely new story with Three Houses while still including some of their more interesting story elements from previous entries in the series. I have a feeling that the gameplay will have some similarities to FE4. For example, I STRONGLY hope that the "Holy Weapons" feature makes a return as well! I loved FE4's "Crusader Weapons" and I hope the Intelligent Systems takes the time to create all-new weapons for the characters with "Major Holy Blood," if you will. Similar to this, I would LOVE to see characters with "Major Holy Blood" be able to pass on their ability to wield special weapons to their children, like in FE4. Although, dissimilar to FE4, I hope Three Houses has a larger selection of characters for the "Holy Bloodlines" characters to marry. In FE4, most of the "Major Holy Blood" characters are already married to someone (i.e. Sigurd, Dierdre, Quan, Merricle, etc.), thus limiting the player's choice for role-playing and individual ways to play. The only characters with "Major Holy Blood" that can marry partners hand-selected by the player and then have their own special weapons passed on to the other half of the game are Lewyn (his Forseti tome), Claud (his Valkyrie Staff), and Brigid (her Yewfelle bow). The other "Major Holy Blood" characters are already married or will be married to characters the DEVELOPER chose. Now that FE games allow for such diversity in terms of character relationships, Three Houses could provide a form of strategy in terms of passing on this "Holy Blood." You could marry characters who possess this gift to other characters you enjoy, or to characters you think are best stat-wise. It almost works in a similar way to the Dragon Veins in Fire Emblem: Fates. These are all predictions and hopes, of course, but I hope Intelligent Systems utilizes the "Holy Bloodlines" system in a manner that makes the gameplay and story of Fire Emblem: Three Houses incredible! What are your own thoughts and opinions about this latest information from Intelligent Systems? Are you excited for the new changes and implementations? I would love to hear what everyone else has to say!
  10. 1. Completed FE games: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, Genealogy of the Holy War, Binding Blade, Sacred Stones, Path of Radiance, Awakening, Fates: Birthright, Echoes Currently Playing: Mystery of the Emblem (just started), Thracia 776 (almost finished), Blazing Sword (have only beaten Lyn mode), Radiant Dawn (just started), Fates: Revelation (just started) Haven't touched: OG Gaiden, Fates: Conquest 2. There a LOT of reasons why Genealogy of the Holy War is my favorite. For starters, the Super Famicom is my all-time favorite console. There are a lot of other games on the system that I love. The music is amazing. Yuka Tsujiyoko did an incredible job with the score. Every chapter has its own unique theme, every army has its own unique theme, and overall, it has that amazing Super Famicom sound quality I love to death. The incredibly diverse and overarching character structure is my all-time favorite in the series. I love the Bloodlines system so much. The player can control units who are descendants of the legendary 12 Crusaders and receive special powers as a result, while still being able to battle some of the other descendants of these Crusaders. I absolutely LOVE how diverse the characters and their development throughout the story are! The gameplay brought many series staples such as the famous Weapon Triangle, and (if I am correct) the red attack range squares. In terms of design and art, I have always loved that classic Anime art style from the 80s' and 90s'. Genealogy of the Holy has some of my favorite character designs in the series. Because there are so many different colors and designs for each character, I found myself taking an interest in every single character, regardless of whether or not I benched them! Combine all of this with the tie-in to Thracia 776, and you have my all-time favorite Fire Emblem game. 3. When I was in high school, I unfortunately did not have many options in terms of learning a second language. I was required to take a foreign language, but I could only choose between Spanish and German. I chose German and took language classes for 2 years. I enjoyed it, but I didn't want to take any more classes after my sophomore year. However, if I ever want to another language outside of Japanese, I would definitely choose German. 4. I love riding my bicycle when I am able to. Unfortunately, I did not bring my bike with me to college, but I do enjoy riding it whenever I return home. 5. I decided to join Serenes Forest about 5 months ago because I really wanted to join a whole community that shared a similar interest with me. I have a few friends from high school who like Fire Emblem, but I am unable to talk with them on a regular basis. With Serenes Forest, I can write about my favorite topics in Fire Emblem and listen to the opinions of the other members. I can also view the topics of other members and provide my own feedback. I am so happy that I decided to join. It has been a very rewarding and enjoyable experience!
  11. 6. Honestly, I am unsure as to what the proper pronunciation is. I was curious, so I went to HowToPronounce.com. There are many different iterations: English, French, and Swedish. The English and French pronunciations do indeed pronounce it as "Loo-in". On the other hand, the Swedish pronunciation is "Leh-vin". I lean towards this pronunciation because it matches that of the original Japanese katakana ( レヴィン - Re-vi-n), and also because the game was based around Norse culture and mythology; a culture that Sweden adopted long ago. However, I understand that everyone has their own preferred pronunciation. 7. My favorite baseball player would probably have to be the Phillies current 1st baseman: #17 Rhys Hoskins. I had the pleasure of watching him play back when the Phillies were still in their rebuild phase a few years ago, and I thought he was amazing. He also is such a great team player as well. He was probably the face of that team a few years ago, but now Bryce Harper has entered the mix. Not only was Rhys excited, but he also hyped the crap out of Harper. I still think he is a great representative for that team even with Harper in the spotlight. I also love Aaron Nola, one of the Phillies' better starting pitchers. I thought he performed excellently last year in the Cy Young race, and I LOVED how he signed an extension with the team. 8. My favorite retired player would probably have to be Chase Utley. Unfortunately, I never took an interest in baseball back when the Phillies won the World Series back in 2008, but I remember how often my mother would talk about Chase Utley around the house. I could only watch as he played for the Dodgers all these years later, but I was fortunate enough to watch his return to Philadelphia on TV last year when he announced his retirement. I hope to enjoy this year's Phillies team like my mother did back in 08' through 11'. 9. Regrettably, I have only been to three different ballparks all together. Chicago's Wrigley Field, Dallas' Globe Life Park, and Philadelphia's Citizen's Band Park. While all of these parks are excellent, I REALLY want to visit other parks around the country. There are so many other cool parks I want to see, such as Pittsburgh's PNC Park. 10. My biggest shocks so far this season would have to be the Cubs' and Red Sox's slow starts. Both of these teams are clearly capable of playing great baseball, but they have some issues that need to be fixed. I am sure both teams will find their way out of their slumps, but I am still shocked to see them play like this.
  12. 1. The worst thing that I can remember doing as a child would probably date all of the way back to when I was a 3rd grade student in elementary school. I remember sitting at my lunch table with my friends having a wonderful and fun-filled time. It only got more enjoyable when my stupid 9-year old mind decided to flip off all of my friends. Back then, I was very stupid when it came to gestures and words that were not allowed. Flipping the bird was one of those gestures. I just decided to do it out of the blue and my friends, wide-eyed, burst out laughing. Naturally, I continued to do it without thinking about what I was even doing. The fun ended when I turned and saw a teacher staring at me. I was later sent to the principal's office and, in an outburst of tears, I claimed I did not know the meaning of the gesture. I will always remember that as the day when I learned the hard way about sticking out your middle finger. 2. I normally HATE reading despite my love for writing, but I recently had to read Homer's The Odyssey in my Heritage class. I was actually excited to read it due to my love for history and epics. My trust in the story was not misplaced. I absolutely fell in love with the plot, characters, and overall atmosphere. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves fiction. Actually, I would recommend it to anyone who loves to read. I hate reading and I still loved it. 3. Some of my biggest role models in life would have to be my head Japanese professors. I have a few different professors who took me under their tutelage, but all of them have been incredibly helpful in creating a path for my future in Japan, getting through classes, and even just providing me with helpful advice on life. I have learned so much from them so far, and I hope to learn even more. Without them, I would most likely be unaware of the actions I need to take in order to make my dreams come true. Thanks to them, I have an idea of what my future will look like. Where I will living, whether of not I should attend graduate school, how much money I would be making; these are just a few of the helpful pieces of information I learned from my professors. I am so grateful for their support and guidance. 4. Prince Marth. No question. He was the first Fire Emblem character I ever saw thanks to Super Smash Bros. Brawl. I am actually currently in the process of having my friend create a Marth costume for me for conventions. I intend on wearing it for Halloween as well, of course. I loved Halloween growing up, so I would love to do it again someday. 5. If I had all of those incredible blessings, I would probably use them to improve and refurbish the high school from which I graduated, as well as use it to help my students when I work as a teacher in Japan. I was fortunate enough to have wonderful teachers in high school. Many of them are great role models of mine! However, I have always felt that my school was very behind in terms of modernization and technological advances. The school itself is over 100 years old and it shows in many areas. If I could, I would like to help make it into a better area for students to learn and prosper. This includes making the school larger, more modern, have better cafeteria food, and of course, have a large variety of courses. I would love to enhance the language department in particular. Add more languages, provide the teachers with more materials, and even offer study abroad trips. However, if I could improve all of the other departments, I would love to do that as well. When I graduate, I hope to become an English teacher at a Japanese high school. I hope to do everything in my power to help my students become better English speakers, but if I had unlimited money and time, I would undoubtedly devote it to helping my students. I would provide them with study materials, extra learning opportunities, and maybe even field trips. Anything that I can do to help my students.
  13. Bread Pudding. My all-time favorite desert is something I cherish every time I buy it. Whether I get with Vanilla ice cream on top, or with apples and cinnamon on the bottom, it is an absolute treat. I would obviously love my significant other for who she is, but if the Rock suddenly turned her into Bread Pudding, then I think my life would certainly become a bit sweeter... I'll see myself out.
  14. In all honesty, I am not that concerned about the Cubs' slow start. Believe me, I understand the anger a shaky bullpen brings (the Phillies' supposed "great" reliever they picked up in the offseason gave up three straight walks to give the Nats a walk-off win today.) I follow the Cubs as well, and I truly believe that they are still too good of a team to continue this slump. Not only that, other great teams are off to horrid starts as well. The Red Sox are 1-5, and the Astros are 2-5. I have a feeling the Cubs will bounce back.
  15. 1. Rezzy seems like a really cool person! I first heard of her when I was watching Mangs' YouTube channel. If I remember correctly, she is one of Mangs' supporters on Patreon. And then, if my memory serves me well, I saw her in Mangs' Fire Emblem 7 PME. I first saw her on Serenes Forest when I created a topic regarding the 2019 MLB season. She always provides wonderful insight about her favorite team and about MLB as a whole. She also has great insight about the Fire Emblem franchise, too. I think she is a wonderful member of the community! 2. My dream in life is to become a full-fledged English teacher in a Japanese high school. I hope to teach my students all about the wonderful language of English and how it can help them become successful in their futures. I hope to be a teacher who is passionate about helping students grow and be successful throughout high school and even onto college. I know from experience that English can be difficult, so I want to always make a point to be available should my students need help. If they need assistance with English, other classes, or if they just advice on life, I will most certainly lend them my ear and give them my best possible advice. Overall, I just hope to be someone whom my students can respect, count on, and admire. If any of my students come back to speak with me about their lives long after they graduate, I will be so happy. That way, I will know that I had left a positive mark on at least one of the lives of my students when they were in high school. That is my ultimate aspiration. 3. Because I hope to become a teacher someday, my thoughts on children are very positive. I love being around children and watching them live their lives that I once lived myself. As part of a senior project in high school, I had the pleasure of being able to go back to my 3rd grade class with my exact same teacher and act as an assistant teacher for the class. I already knew that I wanted to teach students, but that teaching experience left me feeling even more confident about my future dream. The children were so bright-eyed and willing to learn; whether it was from me or the actual teacher. In between classes, they asked me what it was like to be high school student. "Do the kids use swear words?" or "We just did D.A.R.E. Do the students in high school smoke or do drugs?" were some of their painfully (yet adorably) innocent questions. While the answers may have been true, it just proved to me that I need to be a responsible and respectful adult figure for MY future students. As for children of my own, I am still just a college student, but I do hope to have a child someday. The name will obviously depend on who I end up marrying (considering I will living in working in Japan), but I have always loved the names Cecilia and Erika (I swear I liked these names before I got into Fire Emblem), as well as Edgar and Samuel. 4. As a long-time fan of Final Fantasy, I have memories of playing some of the original six games. In particular, I LOVED 5 and 6. Though, Final Fantasy 6 is my all-time favorite in the series. However, much to the disagree of many, I am adamant that Final Fantasy 13 is a great game in the series! I know there are a lot of common complaints about the game, but I honestly fail to find that many. I love the art-style and the characters, the graphics and cut scenes are absolutely gorgeous, and the game's paradigm systems provide an interesting layer of strategy! My favorite aspect about it though has got to be the music...That score is magnificent. "Blinded by Light", "The Sunleth Waterscape", and "Fabula Nova Crystallis" are some of the best pieces I have heard in the series. Haters may hate on it, but my adventure along the L'Cie was one of my favorites in the Final Fantasy franchise. 5. Time to talk Pokemon. Yes, I really don't like one of the beloved games in the series. Don't get me wrong, I love Pokemon and I enjoyed every game I played...for the most part. Everyone has their "gen" that they think is the worst, and I have mine as well. I really didn't care for Pokemon X and Y. Yes, I know it brought 3D models to the main series and all that fun stuff, but that really didn't make me like the games better. I GREATLY prefer the sprites over the newer 3D models. I despised the introduction of Mega Evolutions, I despised the starters, I despised Team Flare, and I despised the new rivals. The post-game was absolute garbage in my opinion, and I found myself quitting early after I beat the Pokemon League. I will admit though, I LOVED the new legendary Pokemon: Xerneas and Yveltal. Other than that, I can honestly say that my journey through Kalos was not a memorable one.
