Denial it is then, but even if that were true Let's Go is still a worse value, $60 for 153 Pokemon vs. $40 for 200~ Pokemon so mute point. Also, of course anything can be any level of value to anyone personally, hence I'm obviously talking objective value. To me Let's Go isn't worth the dirt on my shoes, but I acknowledge the fact that it is still has some of what you'd expect out of a mainline Pokemon and brings some new features so a price of $0 is just wrong. At the same time, so to is the price of $60 as it has less content than cheaper titles. If Let's Go were $20 the game would still be worthless to me but I would no longer call it a cash grab.
Value is inherently subjective, particularly when you are describing it with money, which is not anything stable.
But, hey, let's go with your logic.
Pokemon Go has 417 Pokemon. For 0 dollars.
If the value of a Pokemon game is solely on the number of Pokemon, then Pokemon go is objectively the most valuable game. Not just by a little, but by a literally infinite amount. By comparison, Sun and Moon are objectively worthless and clearly a despicable cash grab. I mean, 802 Pokemon for 40 dollars, vs 417 for ZERO DOLLARS?
Pokemon Go is an amazing value. Sun and Moon is a cash grab. Fact.
Objective value is most certainly a thing, i.e. a 2lb bag of Twix is straight up more valuable than a 1lb bag for the same price.
Ha, you're really so naive to think I'm saying that's the sole reason. That's just the biggest point is all.
Alrighty then, one is free to have that opinion. Plenty of people think this series as a whole is a cash grab, and that's perfectly ok.
