I haven't played a Pokemon game since Silver and then I "grew up" but X and Y looks incredibly cool and I've been looking for reasons to get a 3DS.
But now I'm getting all nostalgic for playing a Pokemon game, which are always fun, meaty RPGs. Black and White 2 looks pretty fun but I'm wondering if I should just hold out for X and Y so everything feels fresh and new again. Then again, 7 months is a long time to wait (for me at least). Is X and Y going to be a huge jump from the 2D games to the point where I won't be spoiling myself by picking one up? --- R.I.P LaManoNera 04-06-2009
White 2 is fantastic. Get it before Gen VI comes out. --- 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.
I say you should wait but if you have a 3DS now or plan to get one soon grab Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. It isn't anything like Pokemon but it is one of the few amazing games on the 3DS.
It would easily hold you over until X and Y comes out as long as you don't mind a game that is hard as nails for new players but has a helpful community.
So not only would you not be buying a system for a single game, you will also be able to have something to do during the wait that will leave you a fresh return for Gen 6. --- http://tinyurl.com/ck8fqvn
