I never really got into it. I got emerald long after I'd played platinum and HGSS ( I missed out on 3rd gen whilst I was in my hormonal 'ALL I CARE ABOUT IS BEING COOL AND BOYS' stage). And although I really enjoyed it, the graphics annoyed me, I guess because I was used to DS graphics and having a dual screen.
I do want them to remake it because I think I will love it once its up to date. I really think it has potential to be one of my favorite games in the series.
