    I never played the origional ones, but if I had I would still say the remakes because of the pokewalker

    How I look at it:

    The remakes: better in content.
    The originals: better in charm.


    That isn't to say that HG/SS don't have charm, it has a good visual and aural aesthetic. But their strength is in the amount of content and connectability they have with other generations.
    Don't forget +C!

    I liked the remakes. The best part of the remakes is the Battle Frontier from Platinum, you have the Hoenn and Sinnoh Sound on Wednesdays and Thursdays. That's all that I have to say.

    I prefer the re-makes. I like the pokemon following me, the updated storyline, and the better graphics.

    I liked the remakes (SS to be exact) because it's awesome, and my Silver/Gold/Crystal's internal battery always died

    Gold and Silver will always have a special place in my heart, but I like the remakes a lot more.

    Well, so what if it's been around a longer time? HG/SS is better, more features, it's harder, has +300 or so Pokemon added to it...

    The originals were my favorite Pokemon games, but I much prefer their remakes. These are very nicely done remakes; they stayed true to the originals, and they added so many extra features. I love the fact that your Pokemon follow you. It gives them a little more personality I think. I also love the improved graphics, the improved box system, and the fact that you can catch the Kanto legendaries as well as a few of the Hoenn legends. There is so much content in these games. HeartGold is now my favorite Pokemon game of all time.

    I love both the original games and the remakes. I played and beat, several times, Silver, and I played, but couldn't get past Claire, HeartGold. I ordered SoulSilver off EBay a couple of days ago, and I'm expecting to get it some time this week. I'd love to play Silver, but it got lost along with my GBA during my move a couple of years ago, so the only way I'd be able to play Silver again would be with a ROM and an emulator. Silver has a lot of nostalgia for me, but I loved the updated graphics of HeartGold. I can't wait to get my copy of SoulSilver.

    Well both... I love the classics. But the new[er] graphics, are awesome. I'd have to go with The re-makes though...

    My hat's off to them on this one. You couldn't ask for a better remake in my own opinion. They brought back damn near everything that made the originals great while maintaining the atmosphere of a gen IV game. And I'm not against any of the new features they added either.

    I never liked the original Gold & Silver. To me, they are the less interesting and creative Pokémon games.

    But the remakes managed to be quite entertaining to play.

    I've played both Silver and Soulsilver, but even though the remakes have better graffics and a bunch of other bonuses, it was a magical thing to play silver when I was a kid. Nothing can beat that

    I don't know how many lifers there are out there, but as a kid I played blue, red, and yellow on a black and white original gameboy. I still remember the first moment getting silver & gold along with a purple color gameboy for my 8th birthday. The very first moment seeing the game and stepping out of the house into a colored town with blue water and green grass and the red fire on the back of cynidqils sprite was mind boogling. I like the remakes, but Gold and Silver where an absurdly amazing improvement over Gen I, which HG and SS weren't.

    Gold and Silver all the way!

    Crystal was my first Pokemon game, so I definitely have a soft spot for it and I think the Gym Leaders were tougher in G/S/C but I love the remakes! The graphics are 10 times better and I liked the Pokeathlon.

    The original GSC will always be looked at for their nostalgic appeal.
    But on a serious level, HGSS are far superior.
    The graphics, music and feel of the game is updated but still has the nostalgic Johto feel.
    Plus, Johto is expanded and less squashed, Pokeathlon, Pokemon following you around - the list goes on and on.
    The remakes are far superior, IMO one of the, if not the best titles of the franchise.

    I prefer silver:SS cuz they have teddiursa in SS, and HG:Gold gave up teddiursa, so I prefer SS:Silver
