I missed out on Black & White, should I play them or just skip to X & Y?

I didn't like white very much at all, It just doesn't feel like a pokemon game. The battles are much more sped up, and none of the new pokemon actually felt like pokemon to me. That said, I do believe it has one of the best "stories" in the pokemon series, which isn't saying much considering gens I-IV really didn't have a whole lot of story to begin with..

How did it not feel like a Pokemon game, how did the Pokemon not "feel like Pokemon", and what's wrong with faster battles?

Go play Diamond or Pearl and then tell me you don't like the sped up battles.

I think you should not play them, because Black and White have a great story, and black 2 and white 2 have a fantastic post-game. Neither of which you'll find in X/Y (though I fully believe they will address these issues, as they did with 5th gen.)

However Gen 5 is badass so you should probably play it anyway.
