Default Pokemon Named as 1UP.com's "Essential 50"!

Pokemon Named as 1UP.com's "Essential 50"!
-01/01/05-


Pokemon was named one of the "Essential 50" (the most important games ever made) by 1UP.com. Their article about Pokemon can be found here: Essential 50: Pokemon (The main page of the Essential 50: Essential 50: Main Page ).

This is, in my opinion, an obvious choice to choose Pokemon. Not only was it a huge craze years ago, it's still going well even to this day. Pokemon brought a lot of new ideas that was never seen before. It also opened the doors to other anime to enter the US (this was also mentioned in the article).

The article itself describes the beginnings and the success of Pokemon. Also, you'll find Pokemon Elite 2000 listed as a resource link in the article.

... Whoever wrote that article must be somewhat ignorant.

"Perhaps no greater case can be made for the franchise's influence than the fact that Nintendo wasn't the only company to profit from its success. A shameful number of also-rans have ripped off the Pokémon formula, from the pitifully blatant (Digimon) to the genuinely clever (Mega Man Battle Network), and most have them have enjoyed a lasting popularity."

Digimon copying Pokemon? More like vice versa. And Mega Man ripping Pokemon off? What a joke

I wouldn't exactly say he's ignorant; he's obviously done research, but I'd have to say he (Or she) has never played the games (Proven when they mixed up Charmander with Charizard).

Even so, they didn't research completely; Digimon got its licence before Pokemon iirc. I'm not entirely sure on this either, but weren't the Megaman games around before Pokemon?
