HAPPY 19TH BIRTHDAY, POKEMON!!Today's date in the year of 1996 was the day that Pocketmonsters Red and Green were released in Japan. (February 27, 1996. GMT+9)HAPPY 19TH BIRTHDAY, POKEMON!! by GETERKIKZKID
That's nineteen years of progress and well, twenty-four to twenty-five years if you count the time it took to develop Pokémon from its start as Capsule Monsters back in 1990.
Pokémon seems to have made a lot of progress since then and it seems that the progress Snorlax has made is a good reflection of this...
Makes me wonder if this is the beginning of the end or the beginning of a new era.
Time will tell and we'll know it's not the end if that blobby monster starts to open it's eyes...XD
Anyway, yeah. Welcome to the world of Pokémon, a place where most of us have come in latr than many and sentimental crap and something about monsters and stuff.
So, thanks for reading.
Go ahead share your earliest memories of Pokémon in the comments as I'd really like to hear about them and talk a little bit about Pok
The 20 Greatest Consoles of All-TimeThe 20 Greatest Consoles of All-Time by Nintendo-Dreamer
#20. Magnavox Odyssey
The console that started it all. Designed by Ralph Baer, the Odyssey would be a project that began in 1966. By 1972, it would be released to the market. An early preview of what consoles would become, the Odyssey was nothing special, other than it was the very first console. In many ways, the Odyssey is the grandfather of all consoles that would follow. So when viewed from this perspective, the Odyssey was indeed special. Very special. Sadly, Ralph Baer passed away just several days before this article was written. Rest in peace to the father of console gaming.
#19. Sega Saturn
Often considered a disappointment by those who owned a Saturn and had to witness better games being released for the PSone and N64, it should be noted the Saturn offered some classic exclusives found nowhere else. So while Saturn owners misse

This group is for everyone that is as obsessed with video games as we are!! If you're like us, your room is essentially a shrine for your passion for video games and you have pages upon pages of your artwork based on video games plastered all over. This group, my gaming brothers and sisters, IS FOR YOU! I may be the founder, but I want you to take this group and transform it into gaming awesomeness
As we are artists here, let's help one another in improving our skill sets. We care about our respective crafts, and you should too!
1.) Please respect deviantArt's ToS. It's there for a reason. This means: no blatantly pornographic images. Submissions with a Mature filter are fine, as are portrayals of characters in sexy underthings and classy come-hither poses. Just no actual (or implied) boinking and all will be well. Use those filters wisely - you have to be 13 to use this site, so don't post anything you wouldn't want your 12-year-old looking at.
2.) All gaming-related art is welcome. Photography, 3D art, paintings/drawings (digital AND traditional), animations, pixel art, sculptures… heck, we accept cosplay. The point is that any medium is welcome here - we hold no bias.
3.) Skill level isn't important here: anyone from beginner to professional is welcome. However - please don't just scribble something in 2 seconds and submit it, make it at least LOOK like you put effort into it. If it's a practice sketch, or a drawing on a piece of lined or grid paper, please submit it to the "For sketches and beginners" folder. Also, PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT STANDARD PHOTOS OF MERCHANDISE. Again, we are artists, and as such we put care in our creations. Let that show in your work. If you want critiques on your piece, write that in your description so others can help you.
4.) Please limit your submissions to 3 per week - we want to give other's artwork a chance to shine in the Featured folder.
5.) You can post advertisements, promotional content, and discussion topics in the journal feed on this homepage. For the most part we do not have any sort of general restrictions on what is posted. HOWEVER, please make a point to put detailed and worthwhile content into the feed, so as to not clutter it with a bunch of little bullet posts with URLs taking people all over the place.
6.) As if it wasn't made clear from other statements, let's say it now: please respect other artists and their works. I know it's the internet and all, but leave the trolling and elitism at the door. It makes everyone's lives easier.
Keep in mind, we're here FOR YOU. We will remain objective in our decision-making to ensure you are treated fairly. If you're having a problem with the group, don't hesitate to contact one of our lovely contributors to get it sorted out. (Keep in mind though, we won't babysit. True concerns and complaints will be handled accordingly.)
If your submission is denied, we will give you a reason that will correspond with the above guidelines - no more, no less.
