Pokemon...probably not the best game to come back on after my small hiatus, but I have to give this franchise its respect. I was a Pokemaniac for a short while right after the game came out, however, I was right on the cusp of the age limit. Since it became a lot easier to notice boobs instead of Bulbasaur, I just kinda stopped playing (but not before I beat the elite 4 and captured all 150 kinds of Pokemon the game had to offer).
I recently played an emulated version of one of the newer games, Fire Red, which is really just a remake of the originals. It was crazy how much the game had advanced and was now much more playable without wasting as much time as I used to.
I even played the Silver version of the game briefly when it originally came out but this one I didn't finish, or at least can't remember finishing it. While I found it ridiculous that they added more Pokemon, I liked some of the other features that the game had to offer. New things like breeding, allowing your Pokemon to hold items that they can use in battle, and a brand new story line made the game more entertaining.
Unfortunately, that was it for me, I was Poke'd out after the Silver version. Now that they've released the Black and White editions, I had my curiosity sparked. Although I won't be playing any of the newer games, I simply had to break out some nostalgia about the PKMN.
