I can only play one... Which? Black/White or Black/White 2?

I only have time to play one during my upcoming two week break. Have not played B/W before. My friend wants to play through with me and he just got White 2... Should I get B/W 1 or B/W 2?

The only thing holding me back from jumping into the sequels is the fact that I won't appreciate all the changes made as much

You should try to play both. But if you can only play one, BW2 is better.

Come to the board in my profile for general discussion. Mostly anime, but anything's good.

The first if you care about story in your pokemon games, the second otherwise.

I vote BW1. It has the better story, and a sizable part of BW2's charm is references and elements from 1.

Plus, you can always play BW2 at a later time and appreciate it more. And you'd be able to play with your White 2 friend just fine in the meantime.

Also... N.

1. You can play 2 at a later date and appreciate it more.

For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene?

Realistically, I won't ever get to play the other. I can only play this one. Yeah I'm not 100% sure about that, but let's just say for the purposes of this topic, it's true.

Also, to throw something else in here: I already have B/W 1 ( Younger bros said I'm free to take em if I please)

If you'll only ever get to play one, go with BW2, far more content, you can look up anything you miss as far as storyline goes, many more pokemon and much more bonus content, Joint Avinue, the movies etc. It's just all around the better game.
