The games allow us to interact in a world we great to love from the anime. Nobody cares if it's original or not. It's pokemon and we love it.

"The games allow us to interact in a world we great to love from the anime."

Does this mean, "The games allow us to go to a world that we love from the anime?" I'm going to hope that's what you meant.

Also, directly from the article: "Keep in mind that this article isn’t trying to bash Pokémon or its fan base, even if they were compared to piranhas earlier. Most gamers are like that when any of their favorite series announce a new game. This article is meant to give recognition to overlooked games that Pokémon borrowed features from. "

The article isn't saying that there's anything wrong with pokemon or liking pokemon.

God damn I need to check my comments before I post lol
Grew to love is what I meant to say.

Oh yeah I'm not bashing the article. Just saying that it doesn't matter that it's not original, just that what it gives is amazing anyway. That's all :)

Oh, I didn't say you were bashing the article, I was just telling you what it actually said. Also, in the article itself, it does state that most of the games in the sub genre borrow from one another and that there's nothing wrong with it. Despite the title, the article speaks on where a lot of these innovations came from and how we should acknowledge them, rather than just latch onto the popular one.

That applies double to Smash Bros fans.
Edit: Besides who cares? Not everything need to be original.

Well, in the article itself you'll see that there's an entire paragraph talking about how games borrow from each other all the time. They also state that there's nothing wrong with it, that people should just know where things come from.

Which is what I say in the article.

Who even reads articles? :p

electricrabbit951d ago

No one it seems, it's far easier to comment on the title. :p

And do you know why? Because it's nothing more but clickbait and bullshit all wrapped up into one.

Fuck any desperate asshole that does this shit!

Emoticons with the tongue sticking out signify a joking tone or playful banter. A tongue and cheek phrase if you will.

Dear individual, you took a comment and a title far too seriously.
