39. Pokemon Stadium 2 (last year 43): First Impression 8, replay 8.5, technical 7.
Pros: A companion piece to what will end up the highest-rated Pokemon games on my list, so it gets spillover perks from Gold and Silver, it was basically "beyond the postgame" for that game, advanced Gold and Silver battling in the days before online could bring the competitive scene to you, it was endless gen 2 Poke-fun. The free mystery gift function and the minigames were also fun.
Cons: Like the Pokemon metagame, it could get downright, teeth-pullingly mean at times.
Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.
