Apparently so, this is so crazy and there is no sign of this slowing down anytime soon. I can only imagine how popular those Pokemon Rumble figures will be too. Yeah Nintendo isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

If Dev's were smart they would realize this one thing:

* We really love RPG's, but a lot of people don't even know it.

I didn't know Pokemon RED was an RPG or even what an RPG was my first time playing it, but I loved it and it was addicting.

We like simplified RPG's with easy battle systems, bright colorful art styles, and tons of stuff to do or content to explore.

Yet we will get 100 more crappy action games next year on various platforms, of which 10 will be worth playing.

I really wish they'd create a console RPG. Would be amazing on Wii U. Would love to see what online community they come up with.

Pokemon Red was the first game ever purchased for me. Went into Toys R Us thinking I was getting a Bike, walked out with Pokemon Red. Good times...goooood times.

So much better than a Bike lol
