    Default Do you find it hard to play the old games?

    So we all know many changes have been made since Gen I, like the addition of the Exp. Bar, bag pockets, running shoes, and HM use (how you can just stand in front of a tree and just press A to use cut). Even the addition of clocks, and the animated sprites has made game play different and more enjoyable. The question is; can you still enjoy the Gen I games or does the absence of such things annoy you? I’m not really talking about the graphics, but just the little things that have made the series better over time.

    It really doesn’t bother me too much, but then again I don’t really play Gen I as much anymore now that there are remakes of those games. What do you all think?

    Yeah... I've gotten quite used to transitioning between IV and III since I play Ruby for the Hoenn-Pokèmon, but when I go back to Red I get annoyed because the character is moving too slowly and its too hard to use HMs and the Bike (since I can no longer just walk up to a tree and get the option to cut it...and I have to go to the meny every time I want to push a boulder...) There's also the issue of no longer seeing just how good an attack is or what it does before you teach it to a Pokèmon, since I tend to forget that sometimes:p

    True I don't play gen I now that I have Platinum, I did before getting it since it was then technically the only pokèmon game I had XD (having stupidly sold Gold and Sapphire... Ruby is actually my brother's)

    When I play them, the biggest thing that gets me is the lack of runing shos. Yeah, i'm lazy.

    It's a weird feeling. I do indeed find it hard. But I still love it.

    Not really. I was playing Pikachu Yellow version a couple nights ago and I actually forgot about not having running shoes. o.O

    The slow-pacing of the games hurt a lot.

    I have to play FR/LG instead of RBY, since the originals just seem too dated for me.

    When HGSS come out, playing GSC is going to feel like ancient artifacts in comparison.

    No, they are actually simpler than the new ones.

    Not at all, I find it quite enjoyable. But then, I'm biased, since I grew up with Generation II.

    YouTube projects advertised are in early development and subject to change.

    I still play red all the time. I still keep habits from red (micro-organizing my bags), and most of the time I have battle animation off and visualize it in my head. There are some things that are annoying about gen 1, but overall it's still very playable and enjoyable to me.
    Scyther vs. Kabutops - I've always wanted to see that battle.

    I'm sad to say that when I played Silver a few months ago amid the HGSS frenzy, I was unable to play much past Sprout Tower. The hours of enjoyment I had got out of playing the originals had gone. The "magic" just wasn't there. So sad.

    Me too! Although I think that's because I'm OCD about things like that.
    Anyhow, I do find it harder to play. The pace is much too slow. I don't know, there's just too many things missing. I can play GSC if I really wanted, RBY is definitely a no no.

    I haven't dared played my Red again, mostly from worry that I'd break it. I would also like to keep its glory intact and unsullied, rather than be disappointed.

    I made the mistake of watching the old TMNT cartoons a while back, and realized how atrocious they were. My childhood still has not forgiven me.

    Not so much, even though I'm used to Gen IV's physical/special split.

    I also find D/P hard to play nowadays because of the longer lag time compared to Platinum.
