I have been an avid Nintendo fan since the days of the 64, so I have played almost every Nintendo franchise. But there has been one series I have been avoiding like the plague and that series is fire Emblem. The brutal difficulty and complexity of the series has always frightened me. The concept permanent death sends shivers down my spine. Ashamedly, I have to admit that I am still a Fire Emblem virgin, maybe I should reword that. I was a Fire Emblem Virgin. Not anymore. Head held up high. Smile on my face. Yes! I lost my Fire Emblem virginity. I completed Fire Emblem Awakening. And by golly it was amazing.
