Why are tropes divided into two sections? Based on the (sparse) wording, it seems like it's divided between gameplay tropes and story tropes, but if so, that's A: Irregular and B: Counter-productive since people keep putting tropes in the wrong section, then.

What's the closest thing that people outside Japan have to this series apart from the precious few OG entries that came over?

Turn-based strategy RP Gs with giant robots? Can't honestly say.

Call me crazy but after growing up on SRW 3 (Super famicom) for several years each modern game seems easy now.

I mean that was boot camp for me apparently. I just got so used to seeing two or three more mook rushes before the episode finish.

Alpha is fun as hell but I liked having it where each of my characters could kill many enemies.

Why did half the series list and all the trope examples get deleted? I assume it was a mistake; if no one tells me differently I'm going to restore it all in a few hours.

It's mistake, obvious.

I thought that, since a curator did it, it might have been some intermediate step to splitting up the page or something. In retrospect that doesn't really seem too likely, so I went ahead and restored everything.

Well,i have a little question fellow tropers,if i was going to play this series (i want to play it from start,but the number of games is absurd) ,what game i have to play first?And in what order?

I'd play the OG Games. OG and OG 2 in that order to get a handle on the system first.

Then try the fan-translated Alpha Gaiden. One of the best of the series and one of the hardest. From there...

I went to W for the number of series I knew from it and a decent menu Translation patch that's available for it.
