I've played through my Diamond thrice; I haven't upgraded to a 3DS or played any generations after generation IV.

As someone who has played the games from the absolute beginning of Pokémon (in North America at least; started playing Pokémon Blue at the age of six!) the D/P/Pl generation was relatively disappointing compared to the certain magic I felt when playing generations one through three. After playing Diamond the first time thorugh I felt that Gamefreak had sold out a great deal with the fourth generation and thereafter to make the games easier for a younger generation of kids. Granted this is where all the money was to be found, but I still felt to a certain degree betrayed. Diamond was almost too easy. It's entirely possible I've just outgrown the familiar game mechanics and I lack the patience I once had to stare at a screen for hours on end.
