I actually never owned any of these games. My first Pokémon was Gold.
I played Blue on my childhood friends' GB tho, it was amazing

@Vil3 same here, I bought gameboy thanks to pokemon craze, it was my only game for good year and I was playing it all the time. No other Pokemon game had the same magic for me.

Yes it is. Super Mario Bros was bundled, so make of that what you will. Same for Wii Sports. Pokemon Red/Blue/Green = the most win ever in software. :)

Not my first game ever, but definitely the first game I poured a lot of my time into.
I managed to get into Gold pretty heavily, but since then no Pokémon game has dragged me in as much as my ol' copy of Pokémon Blue.

Now I've gotta go dig it up and have a go again, haha. Damn you, Vgchartz!

I got all 150 in Blue (we also have Red), I was very disappointed when I didn't get a Mew as reward. =(

Btw Kabutops is an awesome PKMN. He has rock, ice, grass and water moves. Maybe even ground too, don't remember.

I remember when I first got hold of Red and Blue. Wonderful times. It's hard to think that it's been 10 years now and that Red/Blue can be considered "classics".

And that's exactly why it has "worst graphics" and less PKMN. Because it's the original and you can't EXPECT it to live up to the version that was made to be an upgrade to it. That would be ridiculous and foolish.
