Pokemon related, I may receive flaming for this.

buuuuuuut..... I have never played a Pokemon game before outside of the card game back in the mid 90's. I never seemed to take the bait and the hype that surrounded the games. So this Saturday I will buy myself X and my fiance Y. Seeing as how I never played one before and neither has she, will we be ok jumping this far ahead in generations of the game? I feel like I may have missed out on something great for my childhood.

BTW I am a big RPG lover.

You did miss out, but it's still a good place to jump in.

Get Black 2 and White 2, skip this gen, and wait for Gen 7 instead.

You'll be fine starting here. All the games introduce everything like you're 4 years old.

You'll be fine. Pokemon is a pick-up-and-play game for casuals. Nothing to it.

Don't listen to this blithering idiocy.

You're going to run into a LOT of Pokemon you haven't seen before, but experiencing something new should be fun.

Hope you two enjoy the game. Don't know why you expected flaming.

If you like great RPGs with loads of depth, you'll love it.

These games do a pretty good job of easing new players into the series. I don't think you're going to feel out of place at all. When you're done playing through the game, you'll have plenty of time to research the more complicated battle mechanics if you so choose, but the game can otherwise be played just fine without knowing that stuff.

You'll be just fine starting with these games.
