Today I bought X-men Legends II for the GC. I sat my wife down, explained the controls and tried to play a few levels. About 10 min into playing I started explaining how you level-up and can learn new abilities. She looks at me and says, “Like in Pokemon, when they evolve?”.
Yes dear. Just like Pokemon.
In all seriousness, we played for a good hour or so, and everytime I wanted to explain something in the game, I just related it back to Pokemon. It works! She’s familiar with the game mechanics of the Gameboy games so for us it’s a simple comparison.
Who knew; Pokemon is the great equalizer.
