    @haneybd87: I think good objective design can force people to take interesting risks with permadeath on, but the last good Fire Emblem to do that was like, Path of Radiance on the GameCube. Three Hous...

    @indigozeal: Which “both sides” thing in Infinite are you talking about?In general, I find myself (regrettably) agreeing with Dan, in that I think Infinite aged fine and people turned on it disproport...
