Legends is cool in concept, and on better hardware might interest me, but damn the switch is showing its age. The longer it goes on, the more jaggies and low res textures bother me in 2021. We really, really need a Switch Pro. Preferably console only, leave the regular switch for those who enjoy handheld.

That Legends Arceus looks interesting. 

 

Guys, I know it looks rough with the poor framerate and all, but it's still a year away. Going all "we need a Switch Pro, the normal Switch is showing its age" is silly. Given that it's a Pokémon game it might still not look great after Sword and Shield showed the team's lack of prowess, but even still judging an early build as if it's complete and that is what the final game will look like is stupid.

Man, we need a switch pro, period. Its been stuttering even with Nintendo games since day one, right out of the box. The textures are extremely low rez. Its just time. It's 4 years old in a week, and was nothing special technically back then.

That open world game is closer to what I was always wanting out of a Pokémon game - I think the formula they have going is incredibly stale and was maybe never all that good? 
 

But I also don’t have faith they’ll pull the open world game off.

Legends looked pretty empty to me. Of course its still a year out.

What are they doing with that Legends game?!? They better not try and make this a “Breath of the Pika” or something. They already went too “free roam” starting with X and Y. This looks too much like...well, most other games out there. That’s not what (for me) makes this franchise what it is. I enjoy the games because of their relative simplicity. Old school, grid-based gameplay and turn-based RPG battles. So few games are doing that anymore! Don’t take that core experience from Pokémon too! 

Blah.

Much more interested in the remakes since they seem much more loyal to the original design. Which I prefer. Too many people are so quick to jump on the “open world” bandwagon and...I can’t get excited about that. That kind of “freedom” is what has kept me from playing Breath of the Wild. I love the Zelda series, but it changed too much for me and I can’t get interested in it now. 

I hope that doesn’t happen with Pokémon too.

Dude, the Pokémon games are stale. This is exactly what fans have been asking for for a very long time.

 

Its not "jumping on the open world bandwagon", its innovation and moving the genre forward.

 

I suggest you sit down and play BotW, because it's brilliant.

I mean don’t get me wrong I’ve played them all. And had fun. Lol. Just saying the more “open world” they become the less I have enjoyed them.  The DS and 3DS had some good ones. But the Gameboy Pokémon were my favorites.

Very stale. Sword and Shield are the first generation I've ever skipped. With the amount of revenue this franchise makes they have the money to spend to really take a giant leap forward. It's either the team isn't talented enough to do so, or they don't care enough to in fear of changing things too much or just because why bother spending so much more when the games will sell crazy regardless. Mind you Pokémon games have never been super good looking with regards to the device they were on, and the team is obviously more used to handheld platforms, but man did this gen just look bad. I have to suspect that it started as a 3DS game before they knew about the Switch.

Aren't all of them open world technically? Just the old ones were overhead perspective like the old GTA games. Now they have the technology to see at least 10 feet in front of the player!

That's a pretty big technicality. Unless this has changed in more recent generations, you're pretty much on a set route through the world. Once you get toward the end, the entire region is an "open world" that you can explore, I guess. They are pretty linear games that don't include a lot of what "open world game" usually suggests. 

 

If anything, they're closer to Metroidvania.

I bought Shield, which is the first game I’ve played since Red back in the day, and it’s comical how little the formula has evolved over the past two decades. Besides some small exceptions (like camping and the free roam area), the design and structure is almost completely the same. Thankfully I bought it more for my partner, so I don’t really care (and she doesn’t play many games, so she’s having a blast), but now I see why so many like Xbob have bemoaned it over the years. It’s basically the same fucking game, but in 3D.

It's a shame, too. I still enjoy the part where I collect Pokemon and challenge gym leaders and all that, but there's so much more they could do with the combat without having to lose what makes the series good. That four move limit being removed would be a good start. They don't need Final Fantasy level skill lists but a few more options would be so much better. I'm gonna stop myself before I type up 15 paragraphs because I know it ain't gonna change any time soon.

The ones on the 3DS were the same but in 3D. This one is the same but in 3D on a console! :p

I mean...it’s a sequel. It’s gonna play the same. I mean, obviously?!

 

Gonna complain how Dragon Quest plays the same for over three decades, next? Or nearly any long-running franchise, ever made?

 

What a weird complaint.
