Haha, I was in the same boat as you. Except I started a lot earlier (like 3 days after the announcement). I played white 2 and got hooked to pokemon again (now i'm playing white 1). I'd say play BW then BW2. After white i'm moving on to platinum, then emerald.

Play Crystal. A very enjoyable game and kinda rare.

It's the same thing as G/S, no?

Was it weird/annoying to play BW2 without having played BW1? I'll probably only play 1 pokemon game. Think I should hit up 2 or go with 1?

There's not much point in playing Crystal if TC has already played HG/SS. It's very outdated at this point. Trying to get Ho-oh is also very tedious.

Crystal and Heart Gold are very different, you'd be surprised. And a true Pokemon fan, has played all the main series' titles.

I have played all of them. I obsessively played Crystal when I was younger. Going back to Gen 2 from Gen 4 is borderline painful. The differences are not significant enough to recommend a playthrough of archaic Crystal when HG/SS exist, unless you happen to be a masochist.

Which is why I was telling TC, not you.

And that is why I said it's not even worth recommending. It's incredibly outdated. Most of the problems inherent in HG/SS are even worse in Crystal.
