With all the games that have followed Gold, Silver, and Crystal, which were released over 17 years ago, do you find yourself coming back and replaying these games? What keeps you coming back to these titles?

I repurchased Pokemon Silver to go back and play since that was my first Pokemon game. It is the memories that I made the purchase to play.

    I probably start a new game at least twice a year on Silver

      I'd replay it more if my damn cartridges were actually working. I'm too busy to bother changing the batteries as well. I'm really hoping on a Virtual Console release of Gold, Silver, and Crystal so I can play them to my heart's content--Gold was really my first Pokemon game. It's true nostalgia.

      I would play them more if the batteries still worked. I've done challenge runs at various points more recently, but it's not the same, and I can't take the games as seriously. I'm really excited about starting on them again when the VC releases come out, just as I've put a lot of hours into the re-released RBY.

      I would only be able to play Crystal. Gold I can't save on but I definitely can on Crystal still! With that said it's just too hard to see. I've been spoiled by being able to see in the dark and these games are just too hard to see. Despite that though I find myself replaying the music, looking at images from the games a lot though. Definitely still in my heart.

      Unfortunately, I don't. I don't have a working Game Boy even though I still have the Silver cartridge. :< Would really love to fully experience classic Gen II, but I suppose that's what the VC releases are for!

      I beat Lance about a week ago on an emulator. I'm just lacking motivation to get through Kanto right now. (I also just started a Platinum run.)

      I primarily replay them on an emulator for solo runs. I haven't done a non solo/nuzlocke run of G/S/C in a long time.

      I mean. I have Gold, two copies of Silver, and two copies of Crystal. Oddly enough? I think it's become one of my favorite games the more I've played it. I mean I've always loved GSC, but it's like the older I get and replay it, I just enjoy it even more than the time before. Strange for an older game, I realize. But yeah, I do still replay them. I played almost every main game last year in anticipation of Sun/Moon + for the 20th anniversary and Crystal was probably my most fun experience.

      I'm also more excited for Gold and Silver's release on the eShop than I am for Ultra Sun and Moon, so that might speak a lot too, aha.

        I can't not replay these games. Every time I do I feel a thrill I don't feel when replaying my other games - I think it's the nostalgia. I'm currently in Kanto but I put it on hold for now because I got Moon.

        I would replay it a lot more if my cartridge still worked! But luckily for people like myself, they're being re released onto the Virtual Console! I'll certainly be picking at least one of them up when they release!

            the only feature why i like to play silver is because it didn't have that over the top RNG nature bullmuk. i would have loved it if for soulsilver they had implemented all the new moves/pokemon/abilities etc. and just left out that silly nature thing.
            playing pokemon with friends used to be more fun and less grinding. now it ends up with breeding tons of pokemon to get the right nature, the right IV for hidden power, the right EV training... pffff, good for competitive play, but for just playing with some friends it sucks.
