Even though it's been left in the dust by its successors (even as early as Silver and Gold, which knocked it out of the park), there's no denying that the original series, including Pokémon Red, the objective best first generation game, has its charms. As long as you're able to deal with some antiquated mechanics and a ton of random battles (you are not prepared, even with repels), it's worth booting up all over again.

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.

The highly successful signature grind of Pokémon has proven to be both fun and challenging enough to remain unchanged for twenty years. Pokémon Blue, Red and Yellow have definitely stood the test of time - whether you're a veteran player looking for a pleasant trip down memory lane or an entirely new (aspiring) Pokémon Master, these games will provide you with hours of fun. Although some people might think the price of £8.99 is too much (via Nintendo's Eshop), there are still plenty of reasons to (re)visit the Kanto region!
