Pokemon; it never gets old

23 Tauren Druid
For whatever reason, I can't get over pokemon. I started when I was nine, and have since then bought EVERY SINGLE GAME.

I don't know why it's so entertaining. Anyone else have this? Maybe with another game series? It's just so entertaining, and I don't even know why.

I'm 23 and still enjoy Pokemon. I don't have a DS, or anything, but I rock an emulator on my PSP and play all the GBC/GBA Pokemon games whenever I'm bored.

First and second here. After crystal, it just loses me.

I'm no hardcore fan, but it does bring back some good memories.

Yes. Same here. While I may not pick up every game. I at least grab 1 game from each generation. I don't see myself ever stopping pokemon. Ever. As long as it continues to exist and release games I will continue to play.

Yes 23 and I still love it. In fact i still have my old game cartridges and the original Game Boy to play them on. I have to say the thing it reminds me of was the time with friends thats why i still like it so much.

God I should kick the habit yet I still bought Black/white

That game actually rocked even though N was a stupid name for an antagonist

I've owned at least one game from every generation. Can't get enough, seriously. I started out watching the show, then for Christmas when I was like 9, my parents bought me Pokemon Gold and a kiwi green GBC. I don't always agree with their creative direction, but it never stops me from getting the new games. Neither do my friends who constantly whine about how the first generation is the only generation and blah blah "TELL ME HOW MUCH IT FAILS."

Just putting this out there, Pokemon Crystal is my favorite game in the franchise. <3

Always hated Pokemon games. Not because of the concept, but because I feel like I'm playing a Korean grindfest mmo.

Wrong country :o?

Anyways, I ended up stealing my lil' bros Black game to see what they changed with the games. Cheese louise, I though Gold/Silver was awesome, but I must say Black/White might be the best Pokemon games so far.

I have the same problem with Pokemon, it's really addicting. I've played through Red, Silver, Diamond, SoulSilver and FireRed dozens of times. SoulSilver/HeartGold is my favorite pair, it mixes the old with the new and there's just so much to do in it.

It's good at what it does, collecting and then leveling up a unique set of creatures to fight through a game.

Nothing wrong with it really, strong rock paper scissor rpg. If combat, grinds, and collecting are things you enjoy you will probably enjoy pokemon.
