It's time for another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every weekend, we pit two (or more) games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes. Last week, we kicked off a month of Pokémon themed Game Clashes (in anticipation of Pokémon Sun and Moon) with a battle between two Pokémon spin-offs on Nintendo 64, and Pokémon Stadium took over 59% of the vote to beat Pokémon Snap.

This week we continue our month of Pokémon with a clash between the classics. Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow were the games that started it all, introducing us to the wonders of the original 151 Pokémon, the Kanto region, Team Rocket, and countless memories. Gold, Silver, and Crystal built on the originals with new mechanics, a new region, and 100 more monsters to catch. Which generation is superior? You decide with your votes!

Nintendo Switch is set to hit store shelves next March, but we know almost nothing about the games we'll be playing on it. Sure, we can expect Nintendo staples like Zelda and Mario, but can the hybrid console secure key third-party titles? Nintendo recently released a list of third-party supporters for Nintendo Switch, including popular developers like Square Enix, Capcom, Bethesda, and From Software, but most of them have yet to confirm any games for the console. Of all the third-party franchises in the market, which one are you hoping to see on Nintendo Switch the most? Hit the jump to join the discussion!

With Nintendo's recent announcement of the Switch, we finally have an idea of each major console developer's next big release.

So, which upcoming console interests you the most?

Nintendo's finally drawn back the curtain on Switch, the game platform previously codenamed "NX." As most of the major rumors totally nailed, it's a new home console that you can take with you on the go. It can plug into your TV via a docking station with HDMI output, or you can remove it from the dock and play it on a high-definition mobile screen.

That's completely category defining — traditionally, TV play and portable play each required a separate system. But what do you call this new category? Nintendo referred to Switch as their next home console in a teaser, but they haven't exactly been quick to coin a new name for their new device class. That they start from the premise that Switch is a home console gives us a powerful clue, though: Switch is a mobile home console.

The video game industry has been buzzing with rumors about Nintendo's next console for months, and Nintendo finally broke the silence and officially unveiled Nintendo Switch last week. The initial preview trailer did a great job at conveying the fact that Nintendo Switch is a home console that doubles as a handheld device that plays your games on the go, and it confirmed that the system will use cartridges.

However, there are still many unanswered questions. Our first look at Nintendo Switch did nothing to address pricing, storage, touch or motion controls, or the specifics of the hardware, and it could be awhile before those questions are addressed. With around five months left to go until launch, what's your biggest unanswered question about Nintendo Switch? Hit the jump to join the discussion!

It's time for another weekly installment of Gamnesia's Game Clash! Every weekend, we pit two (or more) games against each other, and the winner is decided by your votes. Last week's matchup was a battle of fan-made games, and AM2R: Return of Samus easily beat out Pokémon Uranium Version, taking over 70% of the vote.

We're getting nostalgic for today's Game Clash, as two Nintendo 64 classics go head to head. Pokémon Snap put a whole new spin on the Pokémon franchise, sending trainers out to photograph the series' popular creatures in their natural habitats, and it remains a fan-favorite to this day. Pokémon Stadium was also a departure from some of the norms of the series, but it gave players their first taste of 3D Pokémon fighting, and it was a lot of fun as a party game. Which one of these Pokémon spin-offs is the best? Click below to cast your vote!

Over a year and a half ago, Nintendo first teased that they were working on new hardware under the codename NX. After the initial teaser, Nintendo said almost nothing about the upcoming console for months on end, and rumors, reports, and speculation ran rampant. Nintendo finally put an end to the madness and answered some of our questions yesterday when they officially unveiled Nintendo Switch to the world. So what exactly is Nintendo Switch? Between the preview trailer and the various press releases and interviews that have come out since, we've compiled everything we know. Click below to dig in!

Pokémon GO has truly been a sensation that has swept the world since its very launch, getting the masses off the couch and out onto the streets. Ever since its world premiere on July 6th to Australia, New Zealand, and the United States, people have been scouring the sidewalks in search of that next elusive Pokémon. Fast forward three months to today, however, and the scene looks a little less exciting.

Niantic has pushed out several updates for the game, spawning more diverse Pokémon, making Pokémon easier to catch through badges, and allowing players to earn more Pokémon candy via the buddy system. Niantic is continuing to put in effort to improve the gaming experience and include a better multiplayer system while simultaneously launching the game to the rest of the world. However, some might argue that it might be "too little, too late;" despite a solid grip as the top grossing app in the US, Pokémon GO's userbase has dropped off significantly since launch. With the fad having potentially come and gone, we want to know: are you still playing Pokémon GO?

Each new Pokémon announced often goes under a level of scrutiny from fans. Whether you look at them for their stats, movesets and abilities, or even just how cute and adorable they are, the same question remains: are they good enough to be on your team? While opinions may vary, I think the most difficult Pokémon to pick is often your very first one. Game Freak has kept information on Sun and Moon's starters pretty tightly wrapped so far, but after today's reveal we finally know their second evolution. So what do you think? Are they up to snuff? Do you like the designs of these new starter evolutions?

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is widely considered one of gaming's all-time classics. Sales peaked at 7.6 million copies while Metacritic boasts an average review score of 99%. Its sequel, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, however, didn't receive quite the same level of acclaim. It was, at most, a cult-classic, with bolstered popularity in recent years from online communities. The game went on to sell 3.36 million copies and still pulled a strong Metacritic score of 95%.

When it came time to breathe new life into Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask with 3DS remakes, Nintendo took polar opposite approaches to developing each game. Nintendo and Grezzo held Ocarina of Time up as a masterpiece in need of a simple update. Majora's Mask, on the other hand, was treated like an inherently-flawed train wreck that needed to be salvaged. One has to wonder how such a negative development approach impacted the final product.
