Is Pokemon the most milked franchise in the history of gaming?

#31RazieruPosted 1/8/2013 7:19:39 AM
Of course it is, and even more so now TC. Just LOOK at the "legendary" Pokemon that will "grace" the cover of X and Y. One is a celestial Sawsbuck in the shape of a Y, and the other is a deviant Braviary in the shape of an X.

I can imagine the "creativity" that will ooze out of the other Pokemon. Maybe we will get an ICE CREAM STAND Pokemon to complement Vanillite, Vanillish, and Vanilluxe.

LOL iGENISIS TOPIC HAHA I'M EDGY AND HIP

Ignoring you SILLY SALLIES (I love my mods!) who do this, I have to say that it is up there. They still manage to give a good amour of new content each generation, but with the exception of B2/W2, I feel like the third installment of each generation was just a lazy cash-in which could have instead been the original version if they just delayed it by a year or two, which I am perfectly okay with.

I'd have to say Street Fighter is probably the most milked series ever.

Yeah because Pokemon totally hasn't regurgitated the same ideas in Pokemon starters alone, let alone even more uncreative ideas for Pokemon EVERY SINGLE GENERATION. Who knew that this gen there would be yet another water, fire, and grass trio to choose from; let alone legendaries to hunt down that will be the cover of the box's art work for the games.

I love how you all have to seek some other franchises to blame for being milked or whatever as the basis of your "defenses".

^ Doesn't hide the facts. It just proves that the standards of people have plummeted even more.

Look, I can understand most complaints, but whining about the usual starter types and having legendaries on the box is like complaining about how Bowser is always the final boss or that Kingdom Hearts is going to have Disney in it. It's just part of the game now.

You can't have different starter types anyway.

Newcomers can easily figure out Grass > Water > Fire > Grass using real world logic.

They can't do the same with Dark > Psychic > Fighting > Dark.

Angry Birds has so much freaking merchandise it's staggering.

Pokemon doesn't have more merchandise than AB?
