Pretty straightforward. With Generation VI approaching and arriving in October, Generation IV becomes yet another step closer to relative extinction. My question to you is, will you pick these games up every now and then and play them after Gen VI is out? Or, will you ditch them completely?

    Definitely not. And by that, I mean I will definitely not stop playing these games. :)
    4th gen had some of my favorite games, and I will probably play these games a lot, even with the release of new games. These games will always be remembered, for me. I still even return to some GBA games I don't like as much now, so I will probably play some of these 4th Gen games even more, usually when I finish the new generation. And unless they create like 10 new generations within the next few years, I'll still be playing these from time to time.

    Another reason to keep on playing is that this generation was the one where I really start to got better, and not really as, well, random, as in earlier games. So basically, I have a lot of memories from this.

    Even though I'm focusing on Black 2 right now, I may still find time to play my old 4th Gen games, particularly SoulSilver and Platinum.

    4th Gen had very memorable games, and great features. I'll still have time to play even when balancing the newest generations. Even when 6th Gen comes, I'll always remember 4th Gen as the generation that got me hooked on the games.

    Even when brand new generations come out and win the hearts of fans worldwide, I think I'll still regularly pick up either my Platinum or Heartgold and raise my team, explore around Sinnoh, play my game to its fullest potential and replay with unique teams to see what works best for me. The 4th Generation was definitely one of my favourites and I look back on it as a great generation that introduced wonderful creatures, features, new places and brilliant games <3. I don't think I'll ever give them up, so in summary I won't ditch my 4th Generation Games completely even when Pokemon X and Y come out.

    To be honest , I'm still playing 4th gen games. I don't usually reset games so I still have my original save files from HeartGold and Diamond. I happen to only just got Platinum for Christmas and I'm still playing the last player's game so I can transfer her mons to HeartGold, White, Black 2 and White 2. Then I plan to reset and start my own game. So I'm still gonna be completing Gen 4 games while Gen 6 is going on. While I didn't like Gen IV at first, they've grown on me and I now love them. While they're not my favorite, they're still great games and so as long as I have my DS, Ill be playing them for years.

      I still play my Pearl and Heartgold mainly to just to complete my black 2's national dex before October. To anwser the question I'll probably still play them after X and Y are out.

        Yes, because I haven't finished Platinum yet and I just love Heart Gold a lot.

            Of course, the fourth generation is the most advanced generation that hasn't lost the essence of Pokémon. And do not forget the great remakes of GBC games, HeartGold & SoulSilver.

            I tend to do this to pass the time waiting for new generations, I've recently started on Platinum and Soul Silver.

            Ofc I will. I didn't even complete my Pokedex in Heart Gold yet. And I use Heart Gold for battling, trading and the Pokeathlon!

            As for Diamond, I use it for to trade starters with

            I'm even playing FireRed. So it doesn't matter which Gen is coming out next. I'll still play the Pokemon games no matter what Gen it is.

              I'm probably going to replay HeartGold after I beat White 2. It's my favorite Pokemon game.

              I played Platinum just the other day from start to finish. It's all about nostalgia. People still play Gen 1,2 & 3 daily.

                of course IMO Gen 4 > Gen 5 especially the gold and silver remakes

                  As of right now I say no, since I still really love playing HeartGold every once and a while. That being said, I thought the same thing about FireRed and Sapphire when I first got my DS, but aside from doing some Pal Park stuff I've barely touched them. HeartGold, however, does have a lot more to offer than the Gen 3 games in terms of post-game activities, so while I don't think it'll be completely forgotten, it wouldn't surprise me come October.

                    I reckon I'll still play them I actually completed a Red playthrough just recently :D. Just because they're old doesn't mean they still aren't awesome!

                      Of course! I may come back to Heart Gold every once in a while, but I don't really have any motivation to play D/P/P. They're so....meh.

                        Of course While SS and HG didn't interest me particularly Platinum was great! I'll sure play that again!

                        Hmm, I guess I will, but I'll most probably play HGSS only, I like HGSS pretty good so yeah, this sums it all up!

                          Yeah, totally. Pearl is still one of my favorite video games in general so it'll be tough to stop playing it no matter what comes out in the future.

                          I'll continue to use all of my older games, so long as they work. I still play LeafGreen a lot, and that's several generations out of date, so I think I'll keep playing generation IV as well. I also still have a lot I want to do on HGSS, in particular, and I really love Johto (I would stilll play GSC a lot, if the batteries on all three games hadn't died), so that's definitely an incentive for me to stick with gen IV.

                          So far, I've noticed that the generation that's out has very little effect on which game(s) I play. When I have time to play games, I tend to alternate, and frequently prefer older games to newer ones, so I'll certainly continue to play gen IV.

                            Sure. I just follow my whims - if I'm in the mood for a particular game, I play it. I played Pearl for a while just last night.

                              It's likely. If I ever get my hands on a fourth generation game again since I cannot find my Pearl and Platinum. But I do have a Soul Silver that I am likely to still pick up from time to time. Just like how I used to occasionally pick up my Ruby version.
