Call from EU: How Fire Emblem: Awakening Became a Favorite

NWR: It was the 20th of April and the year was 2012. My mind had just drifted away from games like Pandora's Tower, Kid Icarus: Uprising and even Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, which I was still playing months after its Japanese release. In my mind I was ready for the next big thing, though I wasn't thinking that it would be Fire Emblem: Awakening. The series always interested me and I had completed most western releases to completion. I had also played a few of the Japanese ones, mostly thanks to the trustworthy Virtual Console on Wii. That being said, it never struck me as something that would be number one on my game of the year list. There were other genres of games I was more invested in and potential future games that really excited me. (3DS, Fire Emblem: Awakening)
