I personally purchased Soul Silver, but this decision is ultimately up to you. Both games are great, in my opinion. You could wait for X & Y, but I do believe that SS and HG both offer a great gaming experience. I'm sure you'll be satisfied whichever way you go.I really like that comic, i think its funny
Should i get soul silver or heart gold, or wait for x and y
Lol, me and a friend are playing gen 1-5 to commerate the release of X/Y soon. We're going to complete the Pokedex of each game. So now I'm playing Red and he's playing Blue.Bro, here's the deal. I'm 17 and I still play pokemon. A lot of my friends do too. We all enjoy it cause it's nostalgic and fun and has a good game basis behind it with enough replay value to want to go back and try it again and again. Just today I got a text from one of my best friends at school saying that he was playing Red Version and I was like, "Dude you're so lucky you still have your copy!" I have a friend who graduated last year and he's in college where one of his clubs is a pokemon league. Trust me, it's really cool.
As for buying it, who gives a **** what you buy? Do you know the people working there? And if so, you think they really care? They want money, plain and simple. So long as you buy they'll say, "Nice purchase." I still buy pokemon from my local Gamestop and the guy who works there knows me as a regular and someone who appreciates a good game in general, regardless of what it is. If you truly love it, don't let it go. Embrace your enjoyment of it and buy the games if you like them.
In summary, embrace it and enjoy it. Trust me, it's not as big a deal as you think it is
True, lots of Collegiates are hipsters. That includes playing Pokemon.Hey, it's what we (well, I) live for. Gotta help people out; and like we've been saying, you should never feel held up because you like a game that people will make fun of you for. You're 17, probably about to get into college. College kids will not make fun of you for playing PKMN; I know several college students who play the series, even!
Getting off topic a little here, but speaking of cultural symbols, even my AP text had something about Pokémon being such a huge impact on cultural globalization!People of ages play Pokemon. There's no reason to be embarrassed about buying a Pokemon game.
Maybe it's because we grew up with the series but the guys and I regularly play competitive Pokemon at school. I'd go so far as to say it's a cultural symbol.
