    It is a children game. You can not argue this fact.

    Why do you still play it if your over 12 years old?

    I DON'T GET IT!? I mean they do a REMAKE of 2 games and you all go fucking crazy.

    Yes I played red/blue back in the day, but I have moved on and the nostalgia goggles don't even make the games look appealing to me.

    tl;dr
    Your not 12 anymore, you can stop playing pokemon.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Somewhat agreed. I don't think its a childernes game really. I mean, sort of but the thing that bugs me the most is that the have already done so many re releases already. First it was Diamond and Pearl which were basically remakes of the old Pokemons which was acceptable because its a first for the system but I have to disagree with them always releasing two games at once which ate basically the game. Aright so we then get Platinum which is EXACTLY the same as the last two I guess with a few additions though. And now we get these! Come on, I have tried them out and they seem to be a bit different but basically still the same games.

    Don't blame Nintendo - blame the hordes of people who buy EVERY version of Pokemon. They'll stop making them when people stop buying them.

    Pokemon is a childish game I will admit, but it captures my memories of when I was young. And for that pokemon is fucking awesome. Its still fun!

    Umm... It is more like an RPG game that people enjoy.

    I enjoy it from time to time, but a game I know I would play a lot are FPS games... Such as CoD or TF2.

    Pokemon doesn't change much its been a decade already and its still basically the same game with more Pokemon.Same game play still a horrible story and it's extremely repetitive...catch Pokemon train them for hours and hours battle friends rinse and repeat.

    Totally agree with the OP's opinion.


    Plus any *real* gamer knows Digimon is like 10x better and cooler, and has a way more in-depth and emotional story.

    Age Regression (it's a good thing don't be so serious)

    Pokemon isn't so bad as it's enjoyable for everyone even I play it more competitively but still I enjoy the game despite being in my 20's.

    Want something to be concerned about look at these stats (and this is just for watching the videos)



    Now this is bad *shivers*now think how many of these disgraceful men are actually playing the game in Japan.

    I'm just going to add my 2 cents in and I just want everyone to know that this is an opinion and I do NOT claim it to be fact.

    Pokemon has the same problems many of Nintendo's beloved franchises do. Pokemon is no more kiddy then Mario or Zelda, yet people still want to associate it with the Anime, despite the games coming out first. Family Friendly does not equal kiddy. The game says right on the box E for EVERYONE.

    Think of Pokemon as the Mario of portables. The Gameboy was starting to be considered a failure, that is in till Pokemon Red/Green/Blue came out and sold over $30 Million copies worldwide.

    Pokemon is "kiddy" on the outside, but it can be one of the most complicated games ever, if you let it be. Google EV Training, or IV's and you may see what I mean.

    Why does Pokemon continue to sell at ridiculous rates, you ask? Simple, people keep buying them. Your going to have to just accept Pokemon, because it isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    You should rent Pokemon Platinum and play it from beginning to end, it's really a fantastic game.

    video games was made for all ages, except if there's a rating (like T, M,etc). so don't be mad to your grandpa for playing kiddies games.

    Hah, I agree, as shown by my large post above. I'm 19 and have been playing Pokemon since I was 8. I see no reason to stop.
