Game SERIES Debate to the Death! Golden Sun series

Yes, I know. Calling Golden Sun a series is a little laughable, but this RPG tournament qualification process is all about including every game the Dtoid Army demands, and the Golden Sun games were high on that list.

In last week's debate we opened the flood gates to what will surely be one of the fiercest competitors in the tournament that lies ahead. I basically asked everyone what "generation" of Pokémon games was their overall favorite, and "it was super effective." With almost 200 votes cast, I'd certainly say so. After the dust settled, here is what the final vote totals came out to:

  • Pokémon Gold / Silver / Crystal / HeartGold / SoulSilver (115 votes) -- Winner!
  • Pokémon Red / Blue / Yellow / FireRed / LeafGreen (35 votes)
  • Pokémon Ruby / Sapphire / Emerald (16 votes)
  • Pokémon Pearl / Diamond / Platinum (9 vote)
  • Pokémon Snap (2 votes) -- Awwww!

There were also a few games that received only one vote, such as Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky, Pokémon Puzzle League, and Pokémon: Johto Photo Finish. Maybe in the next debate I'll even go back and tally up which pokémon earned the most votes in last week's bonus question.

Both Golden Sun and its sequel Golden Sun: The Lost Age managed to achieve nearly identical amounts of success, and went on to be some of the best gaming the Game Boy Advance ever offered. They both added a few refreshing elements to the RPG gameplay formula, and were also well known for their impressive handheld graphics and special effects. I've heard equally great things about both games, so I'm really eager to see which one comes out victorious this week.

Which of the two Golden Sun games is better, and why? What sets it apart from the other game in its series? Sell me on the idea! Get me stoked to see it compete in the tournament! Give it some serious thought, share your reasoning with all of us, and then check back next week to see how your game did!

P.S. I'm going on vacation to Italy for the next few weeks, so there won't be another debate for a while. Use that extra time to catch up on some of the RPGs that have won recently that you never had a chance to play! You don't want to get caught with your pants unequipped in the middle of a heated RPG series tournament!
