    Default LT Weekly Poll #21 Do you like remakes?

    Hello Everynyan! Welcome to the twenty-first instalment in the Lost Tower Forum's new weekly series of polls! (20 Already?!)

    Centered around the Pokemon series of video games, these polls will be based on the various different aspects of the popular video game franchise. Every Monday, a Video Games staff member will post a new poll that'll remained stickied up on top of the forum. Suggestions for polls and questions can be sent to Joshawott, and they could possibly used for new polls (credit will be given, of course).

    With that out of the way, here is the poll: Do you like remakes? Both the original Red/Green and Gold/Silver have received remakes over the years; while some new features are added, there are those that argue that some of the fundamental problems still remain. While there are those who like trips down nostalgia-lane, there are those who would prefer original material. Where do you stand with remakes? This poll was partially suggested by CommandurrClowncrete.

    3) Best Kanto Starter?
    4) Should we go back to coloured cartridges?

    6) Best Johto Starter?
    7) How old were you when you started playing?
    8) Do you still play the older generations?
    9) Best Hoenn Starter?

    I'm mixed on this - FRLG and HGSS were both great, but I think it should stop there. I loved them both because I found RBGY to be absolutely horrible and FRLG was a vast improvement, and HGSS were my absolute favorite games of all. However, I'd rather see some new material rather than Gamefreak being stuck in a cycle of continuous remakes.

    Starters of choice.

    While I do love the remakes, I wish they had more to the content. The Sevii Islands in FRLG was a good addition, but HGSS needed more than just the Pokethalon and the Safari Zone. Of course, being able to catch previous gen legendaries were good - but I wish we were able to battle Steven instead of go around catching the Lati or receive pokemon from him. More side-quests with good rewards would be awesome.

    yep, I loveeedd them. hg/ss tops the list of my favorite pokemon games ever. Remakes give those awesome games of the past modern graphics and colors.

    Yes. Remakes are good way for an old game to keep up with the newer ones.

    I'd prefer more orginal material, like more spinoffs. Gamefreak already rehashes their games with the third versions and in my opinion that's enough.

    I pretty much liked the remakes, especially HG/SS - the graphics were stunning and it was a great way to get the older fans to play new Pokémon. :D

    The remakes are awesome. Seriously, the R/S remakes are probably going to be my favorite games ever.

    I love the remakes. As much as I still love the older games, I often wish they had the Pokemon, features and battle mechanics of later generations if I replay them, and remakes are just the answer.

    Absolutely.

    Upgraded technology and additions to later games/Gens being implemented in creative ways and adding new content to the regions for players to experience.

    I loved them, I was able finally complete Johto (the battery running out stopped me) and FRLG was more fun to me then R/B/G
    I do hope that more new content is made though.

    Remakes are great! Especially if you can't find an older version of a game.

    I always love the remakes, as it's nice to replay through all the old memories with modern features. I think my favourite remake would be HG/SS.

    Yes I do. They offer a chance to revisit an old region on an updated console with new features and better graphics, whats not to like. Plus in I dont lose my save file due to the internal battery dying.
