>>25076862 Gen IV and V feels the most dated to me. These 2.5D graphics were pretty shit, gen V was the worst since it had the most of it. Gen I also feels dated to me, mostly because its lack of colors besides filters.
>>25076862 >>25077056 Considering Gen II was my introduction to Pokemon, I disagree OP, I think the vibrant colors for R/S looked great for GBA game, I think the tropical environment, the secret bases made R/S/E made a whole of lot comfy. Gen II is comfy but not as comfy as Gen III.
>>25076862 I agree with ya' OP. There's just something about Gen II that's so comfy and homey. My first games were Red and Yellow, however, I can and still do play Crystal as often as I can. The Johto region as whole just feels like home to me in a way I can't describe. Perhaps it was just me growing up with the games and enjoying them so much that I grew nostalgia blinders. But there's just something about the aesthetic of Gen II, the simplistic overworld with music that was fitting for any situation. I'm not the best at constructing a coherent paragraph, but I just wanted to get that off my chest. Generation II will always be my favourite.
>>25081023 I will concede that Johto is comfy as fuck. Perhaps it's because of the colors, being the first pokemon game able to make use of them, so it feels old and comfy. I liken RBY to black and white movies, which most the younger generations never experienced, whereas GSC would be like the Wizard of Oz or some other comfy early color movie.
>The Johto region as whole just feels like home to me in a way I can't describe I feel the same way about Sinnoh. Maybe because I grew up in Wisconsin, so I'm used to fluctuating betwen 100+ degrees in bad summers to -30 degrees with school still. I also liked Kalos, but it was because I was seeing pokemon in 3D for the first time. The whole world felt beautiful. Maybe I'm looking at it from a skewed perspective, since I had a pre-built team that I cheated in and proceeded to roll over the whole game without any semblance of challenge, so I missed the main struggle of the game and could better appreciate the visuals.
I just want Platinum to be beautiful again.
Maybe I thought the visuals were better than they were, but X/Y reminded me of this track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3VXcML6Hf0
>>25076862 because gen 2 had really vibrant colors offset with black outlines and bits of white to really make the colors pop gen 1 was a similar way, but the colors were a lot subtler and the result looks relatively washed out gen 3 eschews the full black outlines and unnaturally bright colors for a more realistic look, which while not bad contrasts pretty hard with the more cartoony style that gen 1 used and gen 2 improved
which of these is best is all personal taste, though, obviously, but you can certainly delineate why
>>25076862 I actually think FireRed and LeafGreen were the most aesthetically pleasing. Fixed some of the wonky graphics of RSE, and pre-dated all 3d elements. It comes down to personal opinion whether or not Pokémon is best as a 2d or 3d game, but the gameplay seems best suited to 2d. Over all, the most important think is design. Pokémon needs to work on that. We need more /comfy/.
