Let's discuss how much Gen V has changed our lives.

Gen V was the best, but there were some things that I liked better from previous Gens.
Lance was a better champion than Iris or Alder, Silver was a better rival than Cheren, Bianca, and Hugh (that's not saying much), Sinnoh had a more original Elite Four, Hoenn had better music in some places, etc.

But Gen V was all-around awesome! There was no place where it was the worst Gen. I can't say that about any of the others.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

It's done quite a few things well. The game has become more streamlined, the cities are more varied, the visuals are good, music is great, good world, Haxorus, etc. It's a bit too linear, but solid effort by Gamefreaks.

Gen III was my least favorite, particularly Ruby/Sapphire but I still love those games because Flygon and Manectric and the music.

It introduced Skyla and, Volcarona, an awesome generation.

Gen V was pretty great, I loved the increase in battle speed and reworked mechanics, the music was plesent, it had that nice mixture or nature and rural areas, it actually had a story (even if it was lacking in several areas), and it introduced me to my favorite pokemon.

In fact the only thing I don't really like about Gen V was the lack of postgame content and pokemon selection. But even that was fixed in BW2

I would like to say for the record, BW2 is the second best game in the series imo

It was certainly better than Gen III and Gen IV, I can tell you that.
