I find it funny how some people get into certain video game franchises. Sometimes they just play it and like it. Sometimes they follow the crowd and decide they need to play it. Other times, they're just curious, and give it a go. As long as you like it, there's no wrong way.
I'll admit I had heard of Fire Emblem before I had started playing it. One of my friends had one of the games and mentioned it to me. But I had no interest.
That is...until one day...I went to a local store that had Nintendo Gamecube demo station. There on that console was a trailer for Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. I was bored, and the other demos I'd already played, so I watched the trailer.
