I’ve already expressed my feelings about the contradictory aspects of this game and how my admiration for it stopped me from challenging myself around it. Ultimately though, it was my feelings of wanting to see this game out that led to an experience of duality in more than one aspect of the game. Which makes sense considering the nature of the story.
For a game I had zero interest in during the years leading up to its release, I now find myself utterly obsessed with the latest entry in the Fire Emblem series on the Nintendo Switch. But the more I play it, the more I have come to realise that there are two opposing aspects to the game struggle to work in tandem with one another.
