I'm not sure I have it in me to catch 'em all (Gold and Silver would be a different story), but I'm tempted to try if only to see what everyone used to look like. Either way, I had a hell of a time reliving this trek, unexpectedly getting stomped by the Elite Four, and coming out on top at last.

One of the best JRPGs of all time and just as good as ever, this release cements its place in the pantheon of video game history.

Pokémon Red & Blue are a superb addition to the 3DS Virtual Console, and whilst these are both twenty year old games with the occasional wrinkle, they're still extremely engaging and involving titles in which to drown your free time. The gameplay is simpler by modern standards, but there's still a wealth of intricacies and complexity to be explored if you want to train a team to pixel-powered perfection. If you were to drag everything about the game and dump it in a nice, shiny, new 3D engine like X & Y you'd be forgiven for thinking these were brand new games, and you can't say that about many twenty year old titles.
