Part three of my journey is complete!
Title: Pokemon Emerald
Console: Gameboy Advance
How I got the game: I bought it
Being a Gameboy Advance game, the graphics are subpar compared to what they look like these days. However, if you push the fact that it’s 2016 aside, the graphics aren’t bad at all. The screen is clear and in color to see what’s going on in the world of Pokemon. The sprites are still only an inch tall, but I find that great and amusing.
Like most Pokemon games, you use two buttons throughout the whole game, for the most part. It’s easy enough to play and to figure out. It’s not complicated, which is what I love when I play games. My fingers don’t have a lot to do.
Again, like most Pokemon games, you go on a Pokemon journey. You fill up the Pokedex given to you by the professor, you collect eight gym badges, and challenge the Elite Four and Champion to be the very best. In the meantime, you save the world from Team Magma or Team Aqua, depending on which game you’re playing.
It was fun to play Emerald again. I haven’t played it in such a long time, probably since it came out way back when. I’ve played Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire since they came out, but Emerald brings that nostalgia feeling back.
