I mean, I'm glad they got into the series and all, but those two games were the ones sort of, well, forced. SS was an ambassador game. Awakening was pushed a lot. (THERE WAS EVEN A COMMERCIAL! *GASP*)
They didn't find out about Fire Emblem on their own... they didn't see Fire Emblem as good game... Only now
they do... after being more submersed into the gameplay.
But then again, without Super Smash Bros., the ambassador program, and Awakening, the FE fanbase would be much much smaller.
Proud to say that I'm not one of those people who was introduced through the above reasons. I found out myself. ::smugface::
