    Okay, so while I understand that this is a mature forum, I don't realize how old we all are. I spent a lot of my childhood playing the various Pokemon games, stopping around Diamond, and just recently, out of attack by nostalgia, I've been playing them again. They are incredibly fun, yet so stupid. Did/does anyone else play these games? Why? What's your favorite one?

    I played the Red/Blue versions in middle school. I also bought the Gold version and messed around borrowing a friends Yellow and Green versions but I personally enjoyed playing those games a lot. A load of fun, especially battling with friends during lunch (mostly Red/Blue) way back when. There was just something about it that was a fun game to play during some free time, much better than something like Angry Birds in my opinion. It was a really long time since playing any of those games until last Christmas when I got a 3DS from my parents and I broke down and bought the Black version for old times sake. I haven't beat the game yet but it brings back memories that I enjoyed and is a fun way to pass time while sitting on the toilet, on an airplane or long car ride that I'm not driving. The Pokemon in that version are kind of weak, meaning that there wasn't much creativity given in the thought of making the new ones, but the concept of the game is similar which is what made it so popular in the first place.

    Just simply because I grew up with the original games (Red/Blue) I'm going to have to say those were my favorites. Especially since the franchise was new and not milked like a cow. There were only 151 Pokemon (I think) then you could glitch to get Mew (making 152) but he showed up as a censored block but I didn't do that till after I beat the game and was already leveled decently high. When the other games added a handful more Pokemon, that was fine but now that there are a ka-billion different ones, it doesn't hold the same value in my opinion unless you're a kid.

    PS: Yes, I did play the TCG for a little bit but back out because I enjoyed playing Magic more and that is where my money went into rather than keeping up with two different TCG's with limited money.

    Even though the Pokemon franchise is pretty much geared toward younger players, I found all of the versions that I played to be very entertaining... as far as RPGs are concerned. They're solid games, and it's really no surprise why they are as popular as they are.

    While I enjoy up to Emerald version, I do agree with this statement. Before the games got super milked out, the ideas for Pokemon were original and awesome. Now, sometimes, I think that it's difficult to tell what the hell the developers were thinking.
