What I do in FE counts as meta gaming, yes, unfortunately. (Unfortunate because D&D campaigns have instilled a strong sense of "Meta gaming = bad" in me.)

But there are some games where you just find your play style and stick to it, I think. I've tried to cut back and approach things more relaxed-ly: been replaying Shadow Dragon on Hard, without any restarts or save scumming a map. If someone dies, they're dead, and I'm not going for 100% recruitment of all possible units. It's a lot more tense, actually.

Dramatic, I guess is the word.
