As much as I like Digimon, I never played any game from the franchise. Well, there is Heroes now.
I had a N64 when I was a kid and when I finally got a PS2, all I wanted was to play the games my friends talked the most, like God of War, Devil May Cry, Kingdom Hearts, Shadow of the Colossus and others. They never mentioned a Digimon game so I didn't bother with it.
So, I think that this time, I'll have to go to the Pokémon side, which I played a lot.
