>>32162496>BW also had far more exploration and hidden areas
All it had were a couple times where you used Surf and found a couple things. Even SM for as little as it had managed to have a couple of those.>Actual post game content and decent multiplayer shit.
It's something no one wants to really admit but BW is only about equal to ORAS in terms of postgame. A tower clone, E4 rematches, a couple extra areas and a legend hunt. Where ORAS fucks up with small islands, BW proceeds to make most of the new areas giant rectangular cliffs making them feel same-y with some exceptions. Before you bring up B2W2, this is about BW, not Gen 5 in general. Of course B2W2 blows both out of the water.>150+ new pokemon
Was personally the only thing allowing me to tolerate BW>Actual level design
Rarely, but when it did it did, I'll give you that.>A national dex
Normally this would bother me, but BW literally copypasted every single National Dex entry from Platinum. Check for yourself>Exp scaling with a means to bypass it
Turning on the broken Exp Share temporarily is pretty much the same thing. Though if you ask me both that and Audino farming were way too broken anyway.>And a story where you didn't play second fiddle.
A story that is overrated to hell and back just like SM's is. I could go on and on about the issues with BW's plot if you want me to.
