I would think you'd separate the two "generations" of Pokemon games, no? Red/Blue/Yellow, then Gold and Silver.

I think he means R/B/Y, as in all versions of the first iteration of Pokémon.

Yeah, I read "all versions" as including Gold and Silver, since they were for the original Game Boy too.

All versions as phrased has to include gold and silver. Either way, the versions should be specified for clarity. Also, unless the list specifies that it includes American games only, the Green Version should also be listed as it is slightly different from the American Blue Version (technically, American Red and Blue are improvements on the Japanese original Red and Green).

Btw, if you look at the index numbers -- http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/ ... ation_I%29 -- you can find out which pokemon were originally intended to be in R/B/Y/G, but were deleted.

not bad, I would actually have Oracle of Seasons/Ages replace Dr. Mario, but that's a solid top 10. I'd throw Megan Man IV in the top 20.

Well, i think that dr. mario beats in popularity and impact is moreless none for both, i'd say oracles are not really worthy of top 10

and yes, all versions means all versions

DQIII was an NES game, I don't think the port 13 years later is that significant (and it had already been ported once on the SNES).
