genwunners always cite the Pokemon for the quality decline. lets talk gameplay
The bit about spreadsheets was hyperbolic rather than literal. It implies a certain amount of concern for numbers and/or balance, and I say it without disdain for such concern.
Often, when you try too hard to act superior, the opposite occurs.
what was the point of mentioning genwunners?
anyways, in terms of gameplay improvements, I think RS is the most innovative, from the infinitely better box system, to the running shoes, etc.
But I think the best one was HGSS for its touch screen start menu. Why they devolved back to the start menu being only in the screen for Gen V is beyond me (I think there was plenty of space to make the C Gear small and let it share the touch screen with the start menu).
as for the worst, obviously the clunkiest and most aged is Gen I because, like every series, the first one is the one where they didn't have something to build off of/refine.
Gen I had my favorite pokemon
Gen II had my favorite content
Gen III had the most innovation in terms of gameplay as well as my favorite environment and story
Gen IV had HGSS (my favorite games in the series)
Gen V had the best graphics and exploration and one of my favorite OST's

I loved Gen I as much as the next guy, but I'd never say something as foolish as it had the best gameplay/battle mechanics; for me, that peaked at Gen IV with the physical/special split following all of the improvements that II and III made.
Best Gen based on pokemon introduced is a-whole-other story, and it's one that will never see any kind of agreement within the fan community.
This "genwunner" thing just needs to die though.
We're here! We play Pokemon! Get used to it!
what game/gen did you like gameplay wise, controls, interface, stuff like that. which did it best or worst.
Gen 4 mosty sucked (besides HG/SS). I almost quit when I saw Gen 5 stuff. But then I actual played White version recently and it became my favorite pokemon game tied with the other 5 kanto games.
Anyway, I'm of course gonna go with Gen 5. No need to do local wireless battles at a pokemon center, just click the button at the bottom of the screen. Also, I'm glad the Pokemart is now in the Pokemon Center!
i used to be a "genwunner". then i played Emerald.
every single thing about this game was better than it was in Blue. the world, the battles, even the pokemon.
at first i was heartbroken. i couldn't believe i was enjoying this game. clearly Blue and Red were the only good pokemon games.
finally, it hit me.
Gen I sucked.
Heh heh... the wind... it is... blowing...

Gen I sucked balls, the absolute worst. FRLG is Gen III. Gen II ain't much better. HGSS is Gen IV
Gen I sucked balls,
Good for you. I'll keep thinking they're great games.
