Even if FE3 was very popular in Japan, I still am a bit shocked that 2/3 of the SNES titles are on that top 5. I’m not too sure why FE7 is there, but I do feel as if recency bias put 3h at number 2. Awakening was a low brainer as well, that game sold well. I guess I feel indifferent.

No Shadow Dragon, 0/10.
But in all seriousness I’m a little surprised to see FE7, haven’t heard much about its Japanese reception 'til now.
Otherwise it’s pretty much what I’d expect when it comes to the Japanese FE crowd.

I would have expected Mystery of the Emblem to get a few more popularity points, but otherwise this looks about right.

also fates bad lmao

FE7 is on the list but FE6 aint? That is pretty surprising to me.

Kinda thought Gaiden Remake would’ve been part of the top five instead of FE 7. Two of them look like they were a no brainer, given how mainstream the games were after FE New Mystery.

Edit: Not sure what their views were of FE 4 and 3 were tbh.

Kaga is still king

Right now, kinda tempted to play and see how good or terrible FE Mystery of the Emblem is.

Do it, Archanea games good.

FE3 book 2 is dope.

This is so rigged lol
