>>2924735 The only real "flaws" the game has according to what I see most say (most probably are die hard hardcore fans that will always love the series regardless of the direction they go) relates to the games battle system.
While yes you do battling for about half the game, it's not like the battling truly changed much (I know this is going to trigger a lot) between the games. It's still the same old concept. Your monster has 4 moves, you find the weakness, you exploit the dumb ai, you easily win. This has been the series since it's inception and this has never changed. Most of the arguments against gen 1 should only ever really apply to mp. Which you wouldn't have to worry about if you play single player.
They are my favorite games of all time. Go for it OP. Classics don't just become shit because armchair fedoracore neckbeard warriors say they are outdated games that are shit. As >>2924767 said, they wouldn't have sold over 40 million copies if they were shit games. Pokemon was never at a higher peak then the few years after these games came out. That goes for the "pokemon craze" to. Kids these days that bash on these old games simply do not understand that the franchise as a whole was a huge craze that dwarfs even how popular it is today. Which it is still very popular today. Just not nearly so like it was before.
>>2924735 I never played Green, I didn't know there even WAS a Green in English. I owned Blue, and loved it. I owned Yellow and thought it was fun but not different enough from Blue to be worth the money.
>>2924735 They're good, but everything gen 1 did, gen 2 did better. If you're playing a single pokemon game, it should be gen 2.
After gen 2 opinions are varied mainly because Nintendo loves removing features from past gens just because fuck you, for example gen 3 had no day-night nor date system despite the huge praise gen 2 got for them.
Mechanically its dead simple. Its a game of knowing and understanding counters. The rest of it is a fairly by the numbers RPG.
The thing is, pretty much -everyone- was watching the show, playing the game on gameboy, battling, trading and what have you.
Now a days it has some nostalgia, but its actually not very entertaining to play, because a lot of it was like I said, social. Playing with your friends, telling them what you found, battling and trading.
>>2925158 I plan on playing the remake. Playing the originals is neat. I still like them. I wouldn't call them bad. They're a lot better off than the first couple of Final Fantasies . Some of the original release cards are still worth a lot of money.
Nothing will ever be like the Pokemon craze again. Minecraft was maybe a quarter of the craziness Pokemon was. I think if you're younger you should play the first gen Pokemons just to have a laugh if anything.
>>2924735 They were incredible in 1998 when everyone and their mother was playing them. The later iterations are just improved versions of the same formula, so there's not much point in playing the gen 1 games aside from nostalgia and the hilarious glitches (watch a gen 1 speedrun sometime, they're absolutely magical).
People who say the other games are the same thing but better should probably kill themselves.
Yes, the battle system is simple, glitchy, outdated, whatever you wanna call it, but it's not about that, the other games don't have team rocket's misdeeds, the cunty rival, cubone's story, the mistery of mew and mewtwo, etc. It's a selfcontained world and there are no pokegods of time and space and whatever.
Nowadays pokemon games are about getting through the singleplayer as quick as possible to be able to raise a team for online battling, so of course when you look at the first generation through that same lens they are gonna seem inferior, but the game's are about Red's journey, not competitive battles.
>>2925424 I'd bet most of them are underage and think of the first and second generation as "lol grandpa games." Of course people can choose to not like them and prefer later games and be of any age, but I really doubt that any fan of Pokemon over the age of, say, 23 would actively shit on the early games in favor of more recent entries. I've personally enjoyed every generation, though the shift to 3D Pokemon models has really killed my interest going forward. They just look so very boring and for me half the fun was seeing how they'd draw the new sprites for the old Pokemon.
>>2926282 you tried to justify the venomoth/butterfree ordeal with the english name, I proved you wrong, you told me to shut the fuck up and called me a cock sucking weabo cum rag, I proved you wrong further. that's all
>>2924735 The foundation is solid but the games are very rough around the edges. The progression is a little unintuitive at times and the battle system has balance issues and bugs. Gold/Silver pretty much fixed all the problems and are superior in every way.
I wish Pokemon could have just kept improving in a linear fashion like that, with each new game being a straight replacement of the last one. I love the base formula but I hate how ancillary features are added/removed randomly between games to give them minor uniqueness.
But that's getting out of /vr/ territory. tl:dr: Pokemon gen 1 was revolutionary for the time but were cleaned up and replaced by Gold/Silver/Crystal, which id happily recommend to anyone who wants to try the franchise.
I have a love/hate thing with Pokemon. The single player experience is obviously targeted towards kids and has fluctuations in quality, but it's really the only game out there that does a team building, competitive strategic RPG.
Even if it has balance issues and needs a lot of fan-made rules to function well, there is just not any franchise i know of that does this kind of thing. Not even the so called "Pokemon-killer" monster raising games try to emulate the competitive angle. So I keep coming back to Pokemon.
>>2924932 They're great games but there's no reason to play them over the remakes unless you just want a blast of nostalgia or you're a fan of the series who came late and want to see where it started.
