Reasons Why Fire Emblem: Three Houses May Not Be the Best in the Series

Riding a wave of critical acclaim and positive word-of-mouth, Fire Emblem: Three Houses is shattering franchise sales records all over the world. Becoming the best-selling game in the series is an inevitability at this point. But does that make it the best?

It might be when it’s all said and done. However, I’m reluctant to give it the crown just yet. As much as I love it, here are some factors that could prevent it from being the undisputed best in the series.

How Ring Fit Adventure Addresses the Mistakes of Wii Fit

I struggle with exercising for the sake of exercising. As ridiculous as this may sound, the idea of running or lifting weights for the sake of improving my health isn’t enough of a motivator for me to move. Give me a basketball and a hoop though, and I will play till my body gives out. Or give me a smartphone with Pokemon Go, and I will walk more than I normally would. To-date, my in-game tracker says that I’ve walked 4,600+km since the game launched in 2016.

Wii Fit sort of tried to gamify the act of exercise through mini games. However, I bounced off of it quickly because it felt more like an exercise tool than a game or activity. Ring Fit Adventure – Nintendo’s latest entry into exercise games – looks to take the gamification of fitness to the next level.

My Favourite Nintendo 3DS Games

Confession: I don’t like the Nintendo 3DS. Heck, I’d go as far as saying I never liked the Nintendo 3DS. Hot off the heels of the phenomenal DS Lite, it failed to capture my interest like its predecessor due to a 3D gimmick that proved pointless and a software library that was sorely underwhelming. Even before the release of the Nintendo Switch, I had largely abandoned the platform.

While Nintendo may say that the Nintendo 3DS will carry on in spite of the upcoming release of the Nintendo Switch Lite, I think that now is a great time for me to close my book on this era of handheld gaming. I may not have liked the hardware or the catalogue as a whole, but there were some incredible games that blessed the Nintendo 3DS with their presence. In no particular order, here are my favourite Nintendo 3DS games!

The Fire Emblem Series Tier List

Fire Emblem may be a modern phenomenon to many, but the franchise’s history goes way back. Even excluding the Japan-only releases that make up roughly half of the catalogue, you’re still left with 10 mainline games and multiple spin-offs. Those alone might make Fire Emblem one of Nintendo’s deepest franchises in terms of quality and volume.

Though I don’t think there’s a bad game in the series per se, there are certainly titles that stand out from the rest. It’s always been a goal of mine to rank them, but it’s been a long time since I’ve played some of these games, and I don’t want to do the legwork required to confidently place them on a numerical list.

Instead, I’m going with a tier list. Unless stated otherwise, there’s no particular rankings within each tier. As of right now, here’s how I’d rank the mainline games in the Fire Emblem series!
