It was still pretty sensible up to Radiant Dawn. Then everything was thrown out the window, including story, characterization and gameplay.

This might sound obvious but it's hard to find fantasy that isn't filled with Great Man bullshit and fetishization of apologia. Like, I want to believe these flaws aren't inherent to the genre.

I'd even argue that fiction in general has this tone of "we NEED someone to lead us (preferably some sort of Chosen One(tm))".

Also the whole pro-monarchism thing is pretty weird. Even Tolkien presented a diverse array of political systems, but in most fantasy it's either a monarchy or a theocracy, and usually an endorsement of them too. Oh yeah, and let's not forget there were city leagues and peasant republics during actual feudal times.

I mean, in fantasy settings, gods and magic are usually real so theocracy and monarchy are expected to be the default in those universes. It takes less effort to make a world like that.

Well since OP posted Rance I'm gonna mention that you see all this stuff in the Rance series. It helps that the creator is a history nerd.

Kinda hate that thanks to /v/ all Rance is known for is le rape man xd (and Sengoku Rance, like nobody ever mentions the other games except maybe the last one because it has the largest script in video games ever). The games are legitimately excellent, especially the worldbuilding.

FE4's first half is so, so good.

Because, frankly, they suck ass. Sengoku has best gameplay among all Rance games. Other feel very simplistic and VERY grindy. They made the last game a FUCKING GACHA CARD game even.

The setting is pretty interesting and so is the character development, but it's hard to subject myself to high level autism for hours just to get the story. I remember that after playing Rance VI for several hours i just had to cheat it, so it would feel less grindy and i could access the further story.

So you haven't actually played it. This post reeks of someone who just parrots what others say on imageboards.

Best MC of a FE game is the only one without royal blood.

I don't even know why they bothered putting a groomer war criminal as a faux MC in the sequel, all parts involving the Down's brigade were such a slog. It gets weirder when this group never once is told that Daein had started a war literally a few years earlier nor are they called out on this or for helping start a new one over nationalist sentiments.

I have seen videos of gameplay. I playd other games though (ones that have translation, except 5D) and i stand by my words, compared to Sengoku they just suck. I think even you agree with me because you didn't even try to say that they don't suck, you just nitpicked at my description of the last game.
