When it comes to Pokemon, I especially love the 2 on 2 battle. Don't you think it is fun to form a tag team with your friends?

Seriously, I think social aspects of Pokemon may be the best Pokemon experience of all.

One of my favorite Pokémon experiences was back during high school when I and three friends found a carpeted area with chairs at the mall and stopping to do a two-on-two battle with Diamond and Pearl.

Did you know Black & White are going to have triple battles?

Yes I did. They may even one day let you have seven Pokemon at a time!

Well the battle system has always been simple, aside from the details that start to matter if you want to be good. Triple battles add more complexity.

Well, we will have to see about triple battles. It may or may not be too much for us.

Although I bet in the game you either control all three Pokemon by yourself, or team up with some single-Pokemoned trainer...

Probably both. In the past you've been able to fight double battles alone or with an NPC. With other humans you should be able to play with six people, which would be pretty sweet.

I'm not a big fan of Pokemon RPG's i preffer Final Fantasy, especially FFVI.
Terranigma,Secret of Evermore and Secret of Mana Saga are some of my favorites.

I do, I have both. The story was awesome, the The main character had twin swords, there were nine playable characters, so many reasons to love that game that I can't list them all.

To be honest, I'm not sure if I want Tales of Vesperia or Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days, Roxas is my favorite character and I haven't gotten to play that game yet.

Having started at least three Kingdom Hearts 2 files, I can not at all relate to your love for Roxas.
That tutorial is sooo long. Kingdom Hearts even has an infamous reputation for its long tutorials.
I never really got into 358/2 days enough to complete it. The gameplay just feels so restrictive.

Treat yourself to Tales of Vesperia, especially if you have a sibling to play it with.

Only listing freeware games here so... you can get these at the websites provided, for free! :D
-----------------------------

Transcendence: http://transcendence-game.com
I love this game so much that the first mod I decided to make for it was a content-plot X-pack/gameplay-balance TC, which... is actually what I do for every game I like... but still. Here I actually have made significant progress in it (and it was the primary inspiration for me to try to go out and work on a game idea of my own).

Also, if you are wondering why one of the admins has my avvy over there, that's because I loved the game & community so much, I got made an admin.

It is quite possibly my favorite game of all time.

---------

Other games that look cool but have yet to be released:
Starfox: Shadows of Lylat (starfox fan game): http://shadowsoflylat.com
SMRPG: The Starlight Worlds (more of a M&L fan game, despite the name): http://icugigasoft.freeforums.org/super ... s-f20.html

---------

Other games I found fun:
Battle For Wesnoth: (Turn based strategy game... with dragons! :3) http://wesnoth.org
Supertux: (mario platformer clone using tux that turned into... something quite a bit more elaborate in the current milestone) ... I can't remember where the site is
Battletanks II: (the ultimate time-waster :D)

---------

Not free games that I liked A LOT:
Supreme Commander & Forged Alliance
Portal

They are? I played this game for about an hour and a half or so, and didn't find it scary in the least. Just boring. I played it because I like horror, and a friend told me he couldn't play it because it was too scary. I think he's crazy. How is this game scary?

Maybe my tolerance for fear has just been upped because of too many stays in Silent Hill.

On Proud mode yes it is. And then the special challenge missions are really hard.
But the hardest is doing the multiplayer challenge missions WITHOUT HELP
the multiplayer stuff is 10 times harder.

Are there any games of the "Tales of" series for the PS2?

I've now heard about eight or more people talking about this series. o.O
Let me tell you about Homestuck.
