Introduction to video game series through mobile games.
Hi all! I'm brand spanking new to RPGamer, having discovered the site through RPGcast. Lately, I have not had a lot of time to play video games. In the last year, I have purchased remasters of both Final Fantasy X and XII because I never got to finish them over a decade ago. Recently, I downloaded Fire Emblem: Heroes. I have never played a FE game before, or any other TRPG for that matter, but I've been desperate to video game time. I have been LOVING it. I know it's a water downed, free to play version of this storied series, but I have always been afraid of jumping into the series because I just assumed it would super difficult to play. But apparently I'm really not bad at the tactical format. I'm thinking about picking up FE Awakening and even FF War of the Lions.
My question is: Are there any games or series that you've been weary of and eventually got into because you played an offshoot of it, or through some other medium? (ie, an anime or manga series)
