    I prefer the remakes for sure - HG/SS are my favourite Pokemon games overall. I love the enchanced DS graphics and new features: the incorpration of the touchscreen, Pokemon following you, Pokewalker, Pokeathlon, etc. As for the original, I hardly ever played that when I first got the game. The remakes offer so much more.

    For the improved graphics, added content, pokemon following you and the running shoes I prefer the remakes. They do offer so much and the games in general keep getting better with the better technology.

    However for the sheer feeling I got from playing I prefer the originals. Like someone else said, the memories I have attached to playing the originals are from a simpler time when I only had to worry about primary school which is nothing worth worrying about at all. With the new ones the memories are all about struggling to make ends meet and stay happy in a time when I have more responsibilities and worries.

    I'm so glad the GB sounds are in there and so very happy they refuse to change the calls of pokemon. That should never change.

    Overall the games are better, I even have better Pokemon than I did back then plus some pretty cool shinies. But, I just can't forget how happy I was compared to now when I played through my original Silver and how much joy that game brought to my life.
    Call me a fool for nostalgia or sentiment, I don't care. I really treasure my days as a child and miss them dearly.

    I liked that the remakes included tons of new features, but for some reason, I didn't think they were as enjoyable as the original games. I guess I'm still attached to the originals since they were the first Pokemon games that I played.

    There is one thing though that I prefer G/S over HG/SS for. Thunderpunch is so much easier to get in G/S/C than it is in HG/SS.

    Everything else I like HG/SS better for.

    I honestly like both, but the remakes are just amazing. So much has been added to them! And plus, no more worrying about the internal battery right? haha (:

    But the originals just have a veerrryy nostalgic feelng to them. I was so happy when you could get the GB sounds player in the remakes!! (:

    HGSS is way better IMO, mainly because they don't die and have the upgraded graphics. For the most part it's the same game - it's even got a lot of the original dialogue. As long as GB sounds is on to keep it nostalgic ;P Also, HGSS have lots of cool features.

    HG/SS was a brilliant remake, but I think I'm 50/50 on which one I like better. HG/SS obviously had more features to it, but G/S/C has them old graphics that I absolutely love!

    I say the remakes Hands down, though I still like the old ones as well. I like SoulSilver over HeartGold, Because Lugia is on the box cover ^^ Though I had to get HeartGold, since Gamestop was out of SoulSilver at the time and I really wanted the Fall Event Mew.

    The remakes made it so much easier and faster to catch Entei and Raikou. I had so much trouble and it took forever to find and catch them in Pokemon G/S/C.

    You can kick it old school, dude with those **** sprites.

    Originals, in a nutshell. The remakes just doomed the game with bug catching contests and other stuff. The new music isn't so great too, I almost tossed my Dsi out of the window when I heard the new Mt. Silver music And the Lavender music. God, even though they have a Game boy advance music player, I still prefer the originals.

    I don't really remember the old game much, think it got a bug in it that made it erase data. I think I prefer the remakes though. Better graphics and you can get more legends and stuff than in the old games.

    I'd say soulsilver has topped my list of pokemon games, of all time.

    It's hard to say, but I have to say I prefer the remakes because the plot is developed by giving the Rockets actual characters and smoothing over the interface. The Pokeathlon or whatever is a bit strange, but overall the remakes feel true to the originals. Not to mention your pokemon follows you.

    Remakes over the originals anyday of my entire life.

    You know, in the remakes there is an option to switch the music to the old version music. Which might fix your reasoning.

    The remakes were definitely better. With the addition of the battle frontier, pokeathlon and safari zone, it's way ahead of its original version.

    Obviously the remakes. Improved graphics, can catch a lot more Pokémon than the originals and a bunch of other things. HGSS also keep true to the originals as well, but with their own improvements to make the games better.

    YES! Because in my opinion, remakes for anything are usually better!
