Pokemon.
It's satisfying to throw Spikes, Stealth Rock, and Toxic Spikes at your friends who think they know what they're doing.
But yeah, if you're not going to play multiplayer then it's balls.

So, i'm the only one in these boards who doesn't like Pokemon? I was going to ask what the hell everybody sees in those games, but i guess it's like asking what people see in the Monster Hunter games and other assorted titles.

They're quaint, fun games.  Plus, collecting shit is fun if you're OCD.

Yes, and instead of fusing them together, you make them make babies. And then you make the offspring make babies, because incest is totally a kind of eugenetica.

Not creepy at all, nope.

And don't get me started on pokéballs and little kids being kicked out of their house to promote animal cruelty.

That's a nose. Not a penis.

Also the latter pokemon games get some xenogears mindfuck going on or something, with like, god being a pokemon.

Some pokemon designs are just plain stupid. I read an interview with the guy who approves them and he said that some of them had the designers fool around with them for a year until he was satisfied. I mean... what? I used to draw a lot when I was a kid and I could have come up with most of those things in a single day. It's obvious that they're running out of ideas and it must be hard to come up with something different by now.

A buddy and I actually came up with a list of about 73 Pokemon that were so poorly designed and unimaginative that they didn't deserve to be Pokemon anymore.

But seriously, most Pokemon designs are stupid. Just look at the links above. =P

The first gen of Pokemon designs were awesome. More recently they seem to be running out of ideas though.

I totally don't want to derail the topic any more than it already has been, but screw it, I love Pokemanz.

I think the main reason the first gen monsters are so memorable is for the simple fact that their designs and names accurately played off of each other.  Take a look at Squirtle: It's a tutle that squirts water.  Dodrio: A dodo bird with a trio of heads. Grimer: A giant pile of grime.  It all just...made sense!  But then if you look at newer gen Pokemon, the thought processes behind them are just funky.  Like seriously, what the fuck is a Dunsparce? Chimecho? Jirachi? I have no freakin' clue.

And don't forget the incredibly clever triple pun that is Charmander.

Alright, in an attempt to re-rail: I mentioned the FFX/XII entry in the thread asking just which of those to pick, but Skies of Arcadia was the final entry.

That pretty much confirms they did those picks based on the system because SoA was the best DC RPG but was also not what I consider essential (or even my favorite DC RPG).
