On the subject of pokemon

Pokémon. Chances are good you already know exactly what I am talking about with that one little word. Pokémon has affected millions of people, from the video game series (great!), to the card game (we all played it at least once!), to the TV show (was great once! Apparently still worth watching), to the immensely successful movies…you get the idea.

I am going to be honest, and a lot of people are going to think me stupid for this, but I never played the single player for Red Dead. As great as I heard it was, I was having far too much fun traveling the immense world with two of my friends, shooting each other and shouting at each other over the mics.

…It was more fun then it sounds.

You should probably play the single know, do as I say, not as I do.
