Crazy Town, population you. HGSS were lousy with nostalgia! I agree that nostalgia is why you play a game remake, and HGSS hit the mark and just kept hitting it until it bled all over the carpet.

As for game remakes in general, I think they're the one media format where remakes are always a good thing. Movie and TV-show remakes are always dicey and rarely work out, but video games are different in that usually it's the same game but with modern-day enhancements to graphics and sound that enable you to play the game you always loved without having to gripe about how bad games were in the yesteryear.
