I picked Genealogy. It has one of the best stories and world's of any FE. I love the generation system and the characters.

Honorable mentions go to:
Thracia 776
Blazing Blaze
Path of Radiance
Radiant Dawn

I like all of them tbh.

my favorite is Thracia, with honorable mention going to Path Of Radiance

I loved Genealogy of the Holy War but I struggle a lot to replay it

I love the design philosophy and the world building of Biding Blade but I gave up on hard mode due to the ambush spawn.

I still loved this game on NM and project amber and I will probably replay it after editing those ambush spawn out of the game.

My favorite is Geneolgy of the Holy Wars. The story and the impact the characters had were awesome (and Eldigan is awesome!).

Others that I like as well:
Blazing Blade
Binding Blade
Path of Radiance
Shadow Dragon
Mystery of the Emblem

I haven't played Shadows of Valentia but it seems like it would be a good game to play. I also played Radiant Dawn but without supports the game quickly got boring(I like support conversations in games cause it gives more depth to characters though the recent ones have been kind of lacking in that department despite having them).

I personally like the older ones more than the newer Fire Emblem games.

Same for me, I loved Genealogy of the holy war but I knew a certain event would happen (With A guy)
It still made me feel bad, but FE4 wasn't my best moment playing FE PoR didn't felt so good due to it's slowness, but I will probably replay it soon, I still have some great memory from this one

I think at this point Fire Emblem Heroes spoiled the big surprise at the Battle of Belhalla. Path of Radiance is slow but I give them a pass cause it was the first fire emblem that was 3D.

Now to answer the question of storytelling. I think good stories in Fire Emblem are ones that have multiple impactful characters(whether good or bad), have a build up to possible surprises, and(this is the biggest one) The characters in the game actually portray what they are in battle and in the story! Fe4 did this pretty well such as fighting Eldigan and you can cause him to retreat with Lachesis showing his knight-like personality isn't his ONLY personality, most characters wouldn't stand a chance against him or fighting Ishtar or Julius(Julius in battle making a game out of it and not caring about his troops or his people story and gameplay showing how corrupt he was by Loptous). They were as powerful and influential story wise as well as gameplay wise. Black Knight is another one, unless you had Ragnell or was a Laguz king you could not fight him what-so-ever. But even he wasn't the be all end all because Caneghis caused him to retreat so even he knew that. Too many times in Fire Emblem(even the GBA ones) do they describe strong characters only for them to be weaker than how they were built up to be(Karel I'm looking at you! Zephiel I got my eye on you as well). Another is to not have one character solve everything and everyone depend on said character(most recent FE games) Robin, Corrin, Byleth/leader of one of the Three Houses, Ike in general(but to a lesser degree). Three Houses is nice from a gameplay standpoint but story wise it lacks depth because we have all these nobles and strong warriors in Seiros from different places and their impact seem to be almost non-existent.

I loved the Julius thing in FE4, another thing I liked with the Jugdral serie was the chapter 14 of Thracia, at the end, despite having a scroll busted army that obliterated everything on the map, the Thracian army, combined with the Loptryan army made me feel the heroe's despair, Thracia was really strong at this, at least on it's early game (I remember the bloody battle of the river finishing with only one death on the enemy side because of warp)

I personally like when, in the top of having multiple relevant character, perma death is used at it's full potential (the idea of replacing the best units by the worst one), when both combine (PoR and Thracia for the exemple) It feel great

I have never played Fire Emblem due to my sight issues meaning it's not as easily accessible, although I have read up on it a lot. I honestly think that Fates isn't as bad as everyone thinks (although thee are still issues with it) and that parts of the Three Hoses fandom should stop defending Edelgard with arguments that don't even fit anon. (Three Houses also had some issues for me, but I still like a lot of its characters and themes.)
