Destined to invade the playgrounds, baseball cards and Pogs will have to make way for Pokémon.
Younger players will love trading and fighting their Pokémon with others.
3D mavens who relish their textures and polygons will not so easily go back to simplistic 8-bit graphics, but that's their lost. T
he remaining "old-school" gamers will enjoy all the innocent fun and nostalgia. Just make sure you know at least two other players with whom you can trade with because the game is designed so that certain Pokémon are unattainable without trading. And finally, don't be surprised at the amount of time you'll find yourself devoting to this addictive little cart!
Somewhere between all the gaming, Chi some how managed to finish high school and get into the New York Institute of Technology. At the same time, Chi also interned at Virtual Frontiers, an Internet software consultancy where he learned the ways of HTML. Soon after acquiring his BFA, Chi went on to become the lead Web designer of the Anti-Defamation League. During his tenure there, Chi was instrumental in redesigning and relaunching the non-profit organization's Web site.
Today, Chi is the webmaster of the American Red Cross in Greater New York and somehow managed to work through the tragic events of September 11th without losing his sanity. Chi considers GameCritics.com his life's work and continues to be amazed that the web site is still standing after the recent dotcom fallout. It is his dream that GameCritics.com will accomplish two things: 1) Redefine the grammar of videogames much the same way French film critic Andre Bazin did for the art of cinema and 2) bring game criticism to the forefront of mainstream culture much the same way Siskel & Ebert did for film criticism.
