    Default RPG's in which you can have a family

    What are some RPGs where you can get married and have kids, kind of like DQV and Fire Emblem(I think?)

    Fire Emblem: Awakening definitely lets you romance and have kids. I don't recall anyone talking about marriage, but I think it's just "understood", if not outright done. But I just hadn't heard of it

    Skyrim and Fable let you build fairly generic families, but they exist. I wouldn't write home about their implementation though

    Harvest Moon does it.

    Off-topic, but I don't think playing it on Easy with classical mode turned off takes away from the game at all. Play it on easy and enjoy the story :3 Unless easy is still too hard (I don't know how it scales), in which case you have my condolences. I haven't finished the game, but I played enough to know that it is amazing and deserves most of the hype people pile on top of it

    Rune Factory also does it. And, as with most features from Harvest Moon, does it better. Heck, in RF3 and RF4, you can take your family adventuring with you (and, in fact, there are certain areas in RF4 that can only be unlocked if travelling with your whole family).

    I really wish I had some way to help with Fire Emblem. If you want to make it easier, the best way would be to grind. Buy the Golden Gaffe DLC mission. Easily repeatable for a ton of gold and experience. Overlevel, then crush the heck out of the enemy.
    My friend Delzethin is currently running a GoFundMe account to pay for some extended medical troubles he's had. He's had chronic issues and lifetime troubles that have really crippled his career opportunities, and he's trying to get enough funding to get back to a stable medical situation. If you like his content, please support his GoFundMe, or even just contribute to his Patreon.

    He can really use a hand with this, and any support you can offer is appreciated.

    Honestly, while the only console game in the series I played was Rune Factory Frontier, I have to say that it's more frustrating to play than the handheld ones (the Runeys, one of the big design features, are not well implemented, and the world size conversion serves to seemingly reduce your time). The best in the series is definitely Rune Factory 3 for the DS. You should play it.

    I might LP that one, if I can ever get through Gale of Darkness. Rune Factory has a good structure for photo Let's Plays, I think.

    I think the 'families' feature is very underrated. If I played a game with a family or marriage implementation, I'd lap it up.

    It's part of the reason why I love The Sims so much.

    Record of Agarest War. The entire point is to chose a wife and make a kid, then you play as that kid, then have another kid, and so on for a couple generations.
