Been neglecting to update this!
After playing Pokemon Gold for three months or so I got Pokemon Stadium 2
on the N64 and got obsessive with DVs and stats and training and all that *shifts eyes* and played for another couple of months before I got sick of it all and restricted it to train-rides only and moved onto Sonic Heroes
on the Gamecube, which was better than I expected! But I just beat that today and then realized all the other teams are the same (with varying, even more irritating voices), so am going to consider that done and move on to something else which I will decide shortly.
