I loved the second generation games. The fact that they added so many more pokemon without taking away the originality of the Kanto region and the first 150 really surprised me. Playing through the adding of the eggs, male and female, day and night. It was like night and day between the first gen games and second gen games. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of all pokemon and all games made by them, but if you were to put me into a room with a bunch of pokemon games, gold/silver/crystal would be the first ones I'd pick up. Out of all three though Crystal, because I'm a legit pokedex nut, and have to get every pokemon legibly. Lol.
