Why Pokémon Crystal is the greatest game of all-time

ONM - To an outsider, the Pokémon games must seem insane. A ten-year old scurries off to explore the world alone, armed only with one tiny monster. Then they are constantly berated by wild animals and challenged to battles with fully grown bikers in a world where healthcare is free, yet lemonade costs £350.

And still we love it. We'd happily forgo our education in favour of befriending wild animals and training them to attack others.

Pokémon Crystal has everything a Pokémon trainer could want; the two best regions ever conceived, sixteen of the greatest gym battles, and 251 of the most iconic and beautiful pocket monsters ever created.

It's just another RPG. And considered a good one at that.

Me however, I like a story and find the combat too easy.

Why not a pokemon game, they are great. I'll never forget how I felt playing pokemon blue for the first time as a kid, I've never felt that way about any game since. Pokemon crystal was a fantastic game and it's hard to argue that it's not the greatest game ever. Most people put more time into pokemon than they will other games.

I hate how some articles here FORCE their opinion on you.Like saying "You're not a gamer unless you play those x number of games" and comes up with a list of his OWN based on his OWN opinions.Variety is there for a reason brudda,your game can be the best in YOUR opinion,but it's not like i have to make it my best game too,even if i've never played it.
