    Why is Pokemon X/Y the best game of 2013?

    Welcome to the world of 3D Pikachu! The latest itineration of the traditional Pokémon franchise welcomes its newest protagonist to the wonderful world of the Kalos region. The first Pokémon release on the 3DS welcomes the added power of the newest Nintendo handheld with a massive graphics and color palette upgrade and a new stylized combat complete with excellent battle animations. While Pokémon X/Y only adds 69 new Pokés to the game, upping the total Pokédex number to a whopping 718 unique Pokés, many consider the 69 new Pokés to be the best new “generationâ€

    Having played neither, I choose Shadow Warrior because I just don't enjoy the Pokemons and that was a pretty cool intro.

    If you played one pokemon game, wicked, you played them all.

    Just saying... my games got Gratuitous sex. With pokemon, you have to pause your game and google the porn.

    While I have played and enjoyed Pokemon games (not X and Y though), Shadow Warrior was just SO MUCH FUN TO PLAY!

    Shadow Warrior definitely. It was like Bioshock Infinite in many ways but with great deals of FUN!!! poured over it. It was fun. It was more fun than a great deal of games released this year.
