I ain't talkin' 'bout great quality games either, I'm talkin' 'bout masterpieces. Works of video game art. No game is a masterpiece if it has any of it's major qualities so flawed as Pokemon's (lack of) plot. "One of the greatest" is essentially "one of the masterpieces", gaming has been 'round too long t' not have a top 10 list wherein games like Pokemon are nowhere near the top ('cept maybe RBY, but that's a very different; even contradictory; topic).
What I don't understand is how I'm supposed to rate a games quality while ignoring experience. Doesn't a good experience in a game stem from quality? The purpose of games is to create enjoyment, and if I really enjoy a game I consider it quality. If I was to ignore experience completely while rating a game, I should be able to rate it without having ever played it. Which isn't a way to rate anything.
Opinions are thrown around haphazardly. Quality is something that we believe in as individual people, I don't understand how there could be, or should be, universally accepted quality for something as minor as a video game. I remember IGN giving PMD2 a low rating (bastards), does that mean it's a low quality game? To them, apparently. To me, not at all.but we can damn-well come to a more conclusive fact than opinions bein' thrown around haphazardly.
Quantity of characters doesn't replace story, but its a feature that makes the lack of story much less of a problem, at least for me.
Eh? You know what my answer is already. Though I would like some new 'Mons.Would you rather have another 500 Pokemon introduced in XY, or a truly fantastic, work of art plot with just Pokemon already introduced and only the new Pokes that've been revealed? If ya answer "the former", you can just skip replyin' to my post bro.
.....I'll end up losing this argument, but I hope you can at least see where I'm coming from. ¬_¬

what I see
Since I'm a preacher who never knows when the **** t' shut up, I give my closing statement to anyone who doesn't follow. Me 'n Nick have quite clear differences in our opinions, both based on unique bias, experience and perceptions. How do we tell whom is more correct? Eliminating bias. Otherwise it's a circle jerk of either opinions smackin' into each other or philosophies countering the other endless. Finding truth that ain't absolute is always a rocky road when perception is the subject matter to divine, but it's better than havin' nothin' but opinions.
Unless your personal preferences give no ****s 'bout this matter, 'course.
... So, this toats has nothin' to do with Pokemon. dat off topic but not really debate
