I'm currently nostalgia tripping. I'm listening to the original RSE soundtrack, and I'm vividly remembering the days when I would go outside with my friends, play pokemon Emerald on my silver Game Boy SP (with tribal sticker on it!) and when I completely went out of my mind when I randomly encountered Suicune. And oh man, the days back on Drunk Duck when EVERYBODY sprited with RSE sprites. JoFro's gotta back me up on this.
There is a time in everybody's life when you gotta accept "Yeah, shit, I'm getting too old for this now." For Pokémon? Hell no. Well, kind of. I mean the newer games. Pokemon DPP were the last Pokemon games I really enjoyed. I only finished Pokemon Black because I felt like.. I sort of had to? For my childhood's sake? I didn't really enjoy that generation, and I didn't even bother with X/Y. I really liked the gameplay, though. Just.. The Pokémon. I cringe everytime because of their design, their names... I don't want to be the "uurrgghh first gen pkmn r bettr u nubs u kno nuthin"-guy, but...
You see, I grew up with the original Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow, I played it because my older brother played it. But RSE, I actually FINISHED them. I played them days in a row. I LIVED them. These remakes - they GOTTA be amazing. They will probably be the last Pokemon games I ever play. So for Christmas, Imma buy myself a 3DS and Pokemon OMEGA Ruby. And I will end my Pokemon journey once and for all. I'm so fricking hyped but sad at the same time.
... Sigh. Who am I kidding? When I have my 3DS I bet I will buy Pokémon X too. And all other generations that follow. And I want to battle ALL of you when I have Omega Ruby!
