shams : how things change between different people. I thought Fire Emblem on the GC was quite strong. I even wonder if you actually played this game, or if you even enjoy (or understand) T-RPG. Graphics/animation have next to nothing to do with the enjoyment in this game, there's actually an option to turn them off. So a comment about this thing specifically, which is one of the most insignificant thing in this game, is downright suspicious. Then you say the story was bordering on silly !? And your character were bordering on invincible ?! I even wonder if we played the same game. And not losing a character, especially in the last mission, has everything to do with tactics and strategy. Even your supposedly bordering on invincible characters can't survive in the last battle if you make a little mistake, and you should know why. Now, I don't know what is the "silly" mode, but in difficult mode, you already get the entire story. Do you get more in this "silly" mode ?
