Haunter is better than Gengar and Machoke is better than Machamp.
Well, the only difference would be the stat scalings and that's all. Since you can learn any move with either you don't evolve or not. I have actually used Machoke in one of my Emerald runs and beat E4. (I evolved them post-E4, since I wanted to so bad)

Remember when I said that the Bandai game development division should've gone bankrupt for making Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde on the (Nintendo Entertainment System), and everyone yelled at me? Well lemme rephrase that unpopular opinion:

Freaking Bandai AND Toho should've been ashamed of themselves for even publishing that hard and dreadful (NES) game in the first place (In both Japan and US) in the late 1980's! Is that better?

Here's a good unpopular gaming opinion based off the mini systems:


The Sega Mega Drive/Genesis mini is the GREATEST mini classic system ever made for one excellent reason, Sega put more effort than the rest of the mini consoles, as they put 2 experimental games* in their line up of 42 games that later become very memorable. Don't :?: me!




*For those who don't know, the 2 experimental games are:
  • Mega Man The Wily Wars
  • Monster World IV

The Mega Man 2 robot master, Airman*, is NOT really that hard to defeat like the song, "Airman Ga Taosenai", explains it imo! You just have to be lucky enough with the tornado projectile placement! I should know, I recently defeated him WITHOUT using a single E tank! Quickman is harder imo :roll:


*In the Japanese & Wily Wars versions to be speific.

I will never care about Pokemon. The series bores me and I refuse to care about it. The games are good at the best. But not something I would be addicted to.

I agree. I would be that type of guy who would literally Google all the Pokemon's type effectiveness just to find a way to defeat them.

It amazes me that people would spend so much time catching 1000+ Pokemon across different games and consoles, as well as grinding for experience points to level them up.

It's because there's a lot of competetiveness to the Pokemon games, like how there is with Smash Bros.

The Boost Gameplay from Sonic Unleashed up to Sonic Forces is not a good game style. The camera is one way most of the time and doesn't have a lot of stretching room while the Adventure Style could do a lot more.

Ever since I expanded my interest in handheld gaming from just mostly the members from the (Nintendo) Gameboy family to all Gameboy systems AND the SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color, I got this unpopular gaming opinion to share:


The Neo Geo Pocket Color should've never have been discontinued in the new millennium that early in it's lifespan! As the handheld is better than the Game Gear, Lynx, and any of the Shitty Tiger handhelds!

I had mild interest in the series at some point, but it quickly diminished when I discovered the Mario series

Here's 3 unpopular gaming opinions I'm gonna share with y'all:
  • All of the SEGA AGES & 3DS ports of Sega classics (Sega X M2) < any of the SEGA Genesis collection/ports games.

  • I liked The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time & The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past equally.

  • I did mention this, but screw it! I find Final Fantasy 7 to be the most boring FF game. And I had the freaking patience to 100% freaking Paper Mario Sticker Star. :roll:

  • Mario Kart Wii is better than Mario Kart 8 Deluxe;
    Pokémon Rumble Rush shouldn't have been shut down;
    New Super Mario Bros Wii is better than Super Mario 3D World;
    New Super Mario Bros U is as good as its prequel: New Super Mario Bros. Wii;
    Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is better than Super Mario World;
    Super Mario Bros. 2 is better than Super Mario Bros. 3;
    New Super Mario Bros DS is better than New Super Mario Bros. 3DS;
    Maractus and Lopunny are on my Top 3 Pokémon (Lucario - Maractus - Lopunny);
    Pokémon Shuffle is better than Mario Kart Tour;
    New Super Mario Bros series shouldn't have stopped making more sequels (and NOT REMAKES LIKE NSMBU DELUXE! :x);
    Wii was the best console worldwide. :D

OK, you don't know what you are missing them :lol: But seriously, Pokémon is great! Except for the newest games, they suck. It isn't as hard and mysterious as before. No exciting battles like VS Cynthia, the Champion, REALLY NARROW routes (looking at XY)... Ugh, the only good thing these games have are no HMs and new species.

New Super Mario Bros. U was the best in the series for me. The world map was really good and reminded me a lot of Super Mario World, the levels in that game were some of the best designed in the whole series, and they at least TRIED to break out of the bog-standard world structure and try a couple of more creative themes.

Somehow, I agree that the Koopaling Fights should stop being repetitive. They should add more bosses like in the original NSMBDS. I'm not saying that I don't like the Koopalings, but the series' bosses options should vary more. Aside from that and the lack of hard levels (Except for NSMBWII because after 9-7 I learned the definition of "hard" lol), I think NSMBWII have a lot more benefits that offset those factors. So, I still think the NSMB series should come back, but I stand corrected saying that it is a perfect game (I said it once). But, no game is perfect and NSMBWII and the rest of NSMB series are still my favorite Mario games. But, great point, Idunn. Not a lot of people make me suddenly turn into a critic :lol:

Added in 3 minutes 8 seconds:
Also, the NSMB series should have more worlds in my opinion for longer gameplay (like, if possible, 50 distinct worlds), enemies as varied as our NPCs, comeback of OG bosses, new bosses, new enemies, and more... The one game who got the closest to make the dream game come true is NewerSMBWII, a fangame by the Newer Team.

Yeah, also they made one for the ds as well, and I heard newer is still getting it’s update newer plus.

I agree on nsmb with it’s bosses they were more fun to fight since it’s always a neat thing when a standard enemie turns into a bigger baddy.

I agree on this. I'm also bored of the bosses limited to Koopalings and Bowser. Yoshi's Island series had such great bosses, same with the NSMBDS. NewerSMBWII and NewerSMBDS have brought back variety on bosses.

And not just the bosses from YI or NSMBDS, bosses from Paper Mario series should return. I'd give my money if Nintendo brings back Koopa Bros, Crystal King etc. to a new game.

Same, I'd really love seeing the Koopa Bros., the Tutankoopa and even the Hooktail's family (the dragons you kill Paper Mario: TTYD) in a 2D format. Also, I searched who is Crystal King cuz' I never finished the original (nor the sequel, yet I'm really next to do so, I used glitches to get Ms. Mowz early), but I finished SPM, which had the BEST lore of every Nintendo game! Not to count the enemies that have potential on 2D formats like, Longator/Longadile, Cherbil and bosses like Mimi's (disturbing) True Form. I'd pay only too convince Nintendo! :mrgreen: (lol now I am a Bob-Omb rank :D )

Added in 3 minutes 14 seconds:
This dream game (a lot of bosses, varied enemies, comeback of OGs, a lot of worlds, Paper Mario in 2Ds, our favorite powerups, and other features) would might take a while, but the game would be worth the wait, unlike games like Pokémon Sword and Shield. Sakurai (from Smash Brothers) said himself: A rushed game is never a good game.
