The Jadewizard is often lost in thought about it's stories only speaking up when they need or want to.
So I was looking up stuff and apparently black and white have quite a bit of differences and I don't know which to play anymore. What would you choose and why would you choose that game taking the differences in consideration?

My extremely biased answer is to go with White because I adore the Solosis line, prefer the Rufflet line, and STRONGLY prefer the White Opelucid music as opposed to Black Opelucid music.

Why not both 🙂 ?

Though seriously that's totally up to your personal taste. There are a few major differences (two different locations for example), but honestly nothing crucial. I'm personally a fan of Black because I played it first, and I prefer most of the version exclusives, but I don't really have a compelling argument either way.

A silent watcher who speaks only when something needs to be said. Offers free hugs to those who need them.
Honestly, there really isn't that much of a difference between the two. You get a very similar story with the only real difference being which box-legendary you get. As someone who has played both, my advice is to look at the list of version exclusives and see which one you prefer. If that doesn't matter to you as much, just go with your favorite Dragon. The big stuff like Black City vs White Forest don't occur until the post-game which shouldn't matter to you unless you're going all the way to Alder.

Just a guy with way to many ongoing Nuzlockes.
It really depends on what you think is better, judging by version exclusives or city designs or whatnot. Personally I would strongly reccomend the Black version, but it’s up to you.

White tends to have the superior encounters, namely Lilligant and Reuniclus.

this master of winged beasts knows almost everything about flying type pokemons that is known by the man. His rage is dangerous to others around him
i choose black in my unova runs, because zekrom the pokemon of ideals fits N better than reshiram the pokemon of truth. because the final figth is between truth of culture that is around pokemon and ideals of a world that has no trainer that abuses their pokemon

I'm partial to White version because the version exclusives are much more interesting and are some of my favorite Pokemon period.
