Pretty much everyone I know is massively enthused with the new Pokemon games, and I just can’t bring myself to care. I played at least one game of every generation from Blue to Black, as well as the Silver remake, and I’m just exhausted. I can’t bring myself to go to another gym and earn yet another badge, or catch yet another identical Pidgey clone.
At this point, pretty much the only thing that could get me interested again is an MMO. In theory a Pokemon game that had an original plot might do it, but frankly I’ve lost all confidence in the ability of JRPG makers to come up with plots.
