The lights are on
Since its inception in1996, Pokémon has remained relevant in gaming culture. Of course the fanatic fervor has calmed since the late 90s, but I still remember a time when each new Pikachu-branded product made me feel warm and fuzzy. Pokémon Snap, a photography game for the N64 was one of those surprising spin-offs that proved to be just as much fun as the main entries. For this weeks Replay, we take a look back at the on-rails shutterbug shooter.
Join Andrew Reiner, Dan Ryckert, Phil Kollar, and I as we travel across Professor Oak's natural Pokémon habitat. We cruise the beach, a river, and even a fiery volcano in search of shots that outshine the photographs already saved onto the dusty N64 cartridge. Keep your eyes peeled for marvels like incapacitated Charmeleons, infuriatingly stupid Slowpokes, and emotionally confused Magmars. Remember to stay tuned after the Pokémon Snap Replay for an extra special, and extra educational Replay Roulette. (Be patient, the video takes a minute or two to load).

Kakuna actually evolves into Beedrill. Metapod evolves into Butterfree. Just thought I would call you guys out on your serious lack of Poke-nerdness! =)
And I'm glad I have a serious grasp on the concepts of the numbers "3" and "2" now!
Great Replay guys, it's hilarious when one of the featured games is so terrible that I can sit here and laugh at your misery as you play it!
yeah, no dice over here :(

GameInformer, you guys REALLY need to fix your website. This isn't the first time I've come to watch a Replay video only to find your cruddy video player won't work. And why is it that when I load the next set of articles on your homepage it doesn't jump be back to the top of the page? What's up with that?
wow....this looks terribly stupid
Snap was awesome back in the day!
it won't play for me either...
yeah 10 minutes is the magic number. i just went on twitter and tweeted waiting for Pokemon video game replay to load on gameinformer until it came on

Pokemon snap was a great game considering the simple concept behind it.
