Hi, just a long-time Pokemon fan here. Been playing since I was in kindergarten when I first got Yellow version, and was hooked ever since. Despite starting with Gen 1, my favorite is actually Gen 2.

I'd rank the main games as...

G/S/C/HG/SS > Platinum = Yellow > X/Y > R/B + FR/LG > R/S/E > D/P = SwSh > S/M > B/W > B2/W2 > OR/AS

Yes, I really do like X/Y that much. It revitalized my interest in the series after B/W kinda bummed me out, and I still enjoy firing up Y version from time to time. And I'm STILL salty that we never got a Z version. As for the low placement of OR/AS... yeah... I think they are very poor remakes. I hate the changes to the region and I just did not have fun with them. I'm glad that G/S got remade in the time of sprites instead of after the move to 3D models, I think that adds to the charm.

Some other things I like are...

Skies of Arcadia
Sonic the Hedgehog
Final Fantasy
Devil May Cry
Fire Emblem
Metal Gear
Gundam (mainly SEED, 00, IBO)
Fafner in the Azure/Soukyuu no Fafner
Paper Mario
Yu-Gi-Oh! (GX the most, but I do like 5D's and the first half of Zexal before it went to crap)
Harvest Moon + Rune Factory
Star Fox
The Sims
Legend of Zelda
Super Smash Bros.
Silent Hill

I should also mention that I am super flaky when it comes to responding to anything, which is partly why you won't often find me on Discord or anything either. I'm a mega introvert and get drained pretty easily. So if I ever miss a message or don't respond, trust me: it's not you, it's me. Literally.
