Yes, they're COMPLETELY different, they have entirely different storylines! The same general idea of Pokemon is there, but the games are vastly different. Plus in that gen for example - Diamond, Pearl & Platinum were all incredibly slow games (so slow in fact, I can't even play them anymore) and SoulSilver/HeartGold had that issue fixed. One of the reasons why I would vote for SS/HG over D/P/P.

I like that idea cos there's always games in the gen I prefer over others.

Oh cmon now! They're not vastly different :lol:

Pokemon should be considered as one game next time.

Well, if that's the case then we should lump in Sonic and Final Fantasy and all those other game series into one as well to make it fair.

Then the countdown would be 20 spots long... :lol:

Final Fantasy games have no relation to one another though. I'll just stick with my idea of peeps picking their fave version. :wink:

I disagree with FF, even without playing them I know they're quite different to each other.

Pokemon = Pick a Grass/Fire/Water starter. Beat 8 gyms (with the exception of G/S), beat elite 4 and with luck you've got some decent end game material. Done.

Like I said earlier, the same general idea, but the games themselves have different ways of doing that. There's no way in hell you can compare a game from Gen I to a game from Gen V for example. Considering they were released about 15 years apart! :-?

Nice to see some discussion! :lol:

I think with this particular series there should be some restraint in the voting otherwise they will always overshadow everything else unfairly! Like I said you may only pick one game within a gen, that will make it fairer. :wink:

Without dragging out the pokédebate too long, it is weird that SS/HG were bunched with D/P/P, as they are different games.

I didn't vote for Diamond/Pearl because they weren't particularly memorable entries in the series, also don't think I voted for SS/HG, just because they are remakes of the second generation.

Mario Kart: Double Dash! was a really great addition to the MK series, the two drivers per kart added another level of strategy to it and the game had the best controls of the whole series IMO with the Gamecube controller (which I continued to use for the Wii version).

To me, fighting games like Street Fighter, King of Fighter despite many series and changing of characters, they still the same. You choose characters, and play to defeat several characters and finally the boss or you simply play it with your friends just like FIFA & Pro Evolution Soccer

Racing games series usually don't differ from one to another. Other than the graphic, i don't see any much changes with Mario Kart :lol:

Sonic, Super mario, Megaman are the same adventure games . You still collecting rings, mushroom and walking until the end of stage to move on to next stage and defeat the mini boss before final boss.

Pokemon, despite different gens, you still doing the same thing, collection pokemon, defeat gym leaders eventhough their stories are different yet no significant changes in them.

The sims, you still create a family, house and buy things.

And people will of course said the same thing about RPG series. But here is the thing with RPG series, not only their characters are different, the story lines are different. Their bosses are different. The battle system often changes. Other kind of games series only have minor changes. RPG series on the other hands have very significant changes. That is why I only bother to vote 1 series for street fighter, The Sim, Mario, Mario Kart, Fire Emblem etc

Exactly, RPG's are set in a completely different worlds as well, different characters, different in depth stories, different game mechanics, different everything pretty much. Although most sit snugly in the rpg genre there are too many significant differences to just lump them together, shorty has clearly never played an rpg before. :lol:

Aww and Shorty leave Sonic alone, of course they are different games, platformers have sequels that's pretty normal. Pokemon acts more like an expansion rather than a separate game imo (within a gen anyway).

1) I'm proud of my gal, bubbling under like a boss, still higher than many games

Image

poor haters

2) Final Fantasy X is overrated, and I put it higher than I should

3) goodbye at Metal Gear Solid not even making the list, thus making this countdown irrelevant

but thanks crazycrazy for hosting

Yeah I was surprised at FF10 too, like I said it's a really nice game no doubt but #8? Nah.

I'll post the top 5 very shortly. Any #1 predictions?

I believe they should have a fair representation as they are clearly popular but this is ridiculous imo! :lol:
