I myself got Blue - mainly because the other 2 guys I knew that had the game had Red and Yellow.
I know - it's weird, there were 3 of us - all in our twenties playing Pokemon. We're now in our 30s and still enjoying them. --- Where logic won't work - I will PAL Gamers unite - http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/277-pal-gaming
I was too young to actually own any games at the time, but i borrowed Blue from my friend's older brother. Solo'd with my Starter Blastoise up to Cinnabar Island. Best playthrough ever. --- Official Light Director of the NDF/KDF/PDF/IDF Playing: Pokemon Blue.
