Jesus, was it really 20 years ago? I would've only been about five at the time, that's madness. I actually still play it though even today, I just love the old-school look and feel and naturally, the chance to be surrounded by the original Pokemon. Far too many for me to keep count now, at least I know the vast majority of the originals haha.

I love the Gen 1 games for two major reasons, they were my introduction to the series (like probably many people my age, I'm almost 29) and they're so broken it's amazing what you can do with the games because of this! xD I always pick Bulbasaur and find Charmander to be overrated. :P I first picked Squirtle as my starter when I got my copy of Blue, but I actually started with Yellow. (I got it from a friend but had to give it back as his mom accused me of stealing it... >_>) I discovered a glitch when I was 13 years old, and it's been documented on Glitch City. :)

One other way to look at it is they were organic. What I mean is it was their first attempt at these games, and yes they were broken, they were fun and I think they were immersive and organically made with no ulterior motives. IDK maybe it's hard to explain. I look at it as nowadays every year or so they just pop out two new colors (think like sports games) and you just buy, play, rinse and repeat, and they make little changes here or there. I loved the Red, Blue, and Yellow ... especially Yellow with Pikachu!

They were immensely broken, and all the more lovable for it.
I got Pokemon Yellow on my 3DS and just played through it for the first time a few months ago. It was a neat historical experience since growing up my first Pokemon games were all in Gen 3. I had Leafgreen for the GBA, so the Kanto-only game wasn't exactly new to me but the changes in the Engine between Gen 1 and 3 made Yellow a surprisingly different experience from Leafgreen.

I'm glad that I've now played through a Gen 1 title but I don't forsee myself doing so again. I would still want to play Crystal version though since I have played Soulsilver and am be seeking a similar looking-glass experience.
