I got Silver for Christmas along with a Game Boy Color, and then Crystal a year or two after.
I played all 3 but I started with Silver
Even though crystal did have more content, pokemon silver is still my favorite. Guess it's just nostalgia since that was the first pokemon game I played.
The poll results seem pretty evenly distributed!
How many of you still have an original Gold, Silver, or Crystal game cartridge that still saves??
My Crystal Version stills saves! ;D

Pokémon Crystal was my first pokemon game ever.
I support shipping diversity because our fanbases would be boring if we all supported the bloody canon.
I had Gold before everyone I knew, but it was in Japanese, but I still beat the whole game without knowing a single word.

I had Silver and although it may be due to nostalgia, it was my favorite game. I loved not know where and what everything is, which I'm attempting to do with X and Y now!

I've played Silver and Crystal. I spent an equal amount of time on both, although i remember Crystal more vividly for some reason.
Played all three!

Silver, which also is the first Pokémon game I ever played with.
Gold first, and I remember I was the first in my family to defeat Lance. I fought him for an hour and then when I finally beat that damn Dragonite (with my Typhlosion about to faint no less) I screamed so loud my parents thought I'd hurt myself.
Lance is the reason I hate Dragon pokemon now, by the way. Not to train, but to fight against. Good thing they're fixing the OP-ness in X and Y though. About darn time. But I digress.
Unfortunately, I accidentally lost my Gold Version and my Gameboy Color in a rental car, but then I got Crystal Version to compensate, which I played on my GBA. That one I don't think I got very far in though, because right after I caught the Red Gyarados I lost interest in Pokemon and sold the game off to a friend. Big mistake on my part looking back on that, but at least there's always eBay nowadays.
Played Gold and Crystal ... but had the best memories to Crystal. It was the game in which I beat Red for the first time. I remember how my woefully underpowered team (all around lvl 55 and a Scizor lvl 48) defeated him after a long and heated battle in one try. That was just the most awesome feeling ... back then.
I have played all three at some point or another, but I had Crystal version first as a kid. I love Crystal the most out of the three, since most of the sprites looked ugly in both Gold and Silver plus the legendary beast battle music is simply epic and is the most epic battle theme in the game. :P
If I remember right silver sold more over gold, so I assume most will have played that. I played gold.

I started with Gold, then i did Crystal, it's now my favoutire pokemon game
First, it was Silver, and then, 2/3 months after, I've played Crystal. I was pretty young though, probably wouldn't bother with Silver nowadays, as I could get Crystal before; I just didn't because I've wanted Lugia and wasn't a big fan of Suicune... So little did I know I could get both Ho-oh and Lugia in that game, haha!

I've only got Crystal. I actually had a fake cartridge with both Gold and Silver, but those never save. I lost them quite a few years ago.
I bought Crystal and Silver although I liked Crystal better. I started playing Crystal in 2001 then stopped playing it for about 10 years but I just beat the Indigo Plateau last year. I originally went though all the gyms with 1 pokemon and couldn't take on the Indigo Plateau with just 1, so last year I went though my storage system and found a Croconaw and Jynx and leveled them up to 44 in Victory Road.
Gold was my first game. My brother bought it for me for my birthday; he hated Pokemon but he still got it for me.
the answer we're looking for won't be found easily,
but we knew that when we took the first step.
Silver was my first ever game that I owned for myself. I played the heck out of that game.
I also eventually came into possession of a Crystal game. I now have both safely stored away in a game case somewhere. I love Gen II.
I've played Gold, but it doesn't save anymore. My Crystal game still works, however.
Got to be silver because i loved Lugia...
I played all three games.
