Pokémon Gold and Silver remain the greatest Pokémon games made to this day.
The ones I never played either. Looks like that will be changing very soon!
Easily the best ones. No comparison. Tho the DS remakes are vastly superior. Don't want to spoil anything but they vastly make the experience of the second half of the game better...
Definitely get on that. Blue and red get hyped because then being the first to come out and then the anime but good and sliver perfected everything in terms of the game as a whole
Gold is by far my favorite.
The first and only actual Pokemon sequel that built on everything the original game did. Every other Pokemon game since has just been a reboot really, kept the very basics changed everything else, and added a few gimmicks. G&S the only games that added greatly and took nothing away, they even had the original map as end game content FFS.
No statement has been truer. Many reasons why this set is above the other but one that has always stuck out to me is the legendarys. These days legendary pokemon come in droves but back then they were what the name emphasized, legendary. 1-4 and no more, made the experience whole lot more exciting, now it's just like w.e I'll eventually get one and there's so many that it doesn't feel special.
There are more than 4 legendary Pokemon in Gold/Silver. I haven't played in a while but I'm also pretty sure it forces you to face Ho‑Oh/Lugia so it always felt like "yeah I'll get a legendary eventually".
It doesn't force you to fight Lugia at all in gold ,they just let you know that there's a legend of a Pokemon living in the sea or something
Ok not forced but it's not like it was a surprise to get a legendary as it wasn't a random encounter.
I would buy a 3DS just for this game *boots up emulator and rom.
Gold and Silver truly is the best in the franchise! They really perfected this formula and its something the others were unable to replicate at that quality
