Default Re: Old is New: Old Pokemon in 3D

I know, that's why I made sure to say "main series game". I like Colosseum and XD but they really weren't anything like RBY or GSC etc.

Sprites/2D worlds have a sort of charm and simplicity that allow you to use your imagination to make the world come to life. I don't think 3D has advanced enough to make a pretty Pokemon game. From the screenshots, it still looks pixelly and stretched.
I agree. I was always really excited to see how cool/cute they had made my favorite Pokemon this time. I actually cared more about back sprites. I always hated when an awesome Pokemon had an awesome sprite and then the back sprite was so horrid that it really made the Pokemon unusable.

Yeah I agree also. I wouldn't call it nostalgia I guess. I guess nostalgia of how much I used to love playing which doesn't necessarily translate into any new feelings. I really wanted to enjoy FR/LG but I had already played R/B/Y so many times that it was incredibly boring to get through. I'm excited again by Pokemon being in 3D, but I'm sure that excitement will fade quickly and we'll have another bunch mashing Pokemon Game. I'll want to see some of my old favorites in 3D and then I'll most likely quickly retire the game.

Like Sarah said. If sprites are over, then the Pokemon of my childhood is over. Pokemon will probably keep moving on and the sprite stye will feel more and more archaic to the new children being initiated into a wonderful and exciting Pokemon childhood, but for me it will be over. It's a happy sadness...
