My friend hates everything new in ORAS, as he said while he was over today. He soon realised he was not welcome in my house...
Awww, I hope he's being open minded about it! He sounds like one of those people that shuts away everything new... I hope he at least gave it a chance, because honestly these games are just so great. ;w;
Reminds me, which is you guys favorite Pokemon game now?
ORAS is definitely up there, probably my favorite. But HGSS are still also way up there, I absolutely love those games. X&Y used to be high on my list, but ORAS has completely over shadowed it.
As of right now, if I had to put it into list form, my top 3 might be:
1) ORAS simply because of convenience, amazingness, everything. It's all around the most flawless of the games, for me personally. I feel comfortable playing it, and it has absolutely everything I need, such as the breeding mechanics.
2) HGSS because those games mean so much to me, I was so excited when they came out as Johto used to be my favorite region as a kid. They're adorable, fun, have an extensive story and gameplay even past the elite four, Pokemon following you ♥, it's lovely.
3) Hmm, probably Platinum. Might seem random but there's something about this game I really liked. I didn't even play it until after Black 2 and White 2, and it still felt like a very solid game with an amazing selection of Pokemon and a fun storyline.
