Locking running shoes, pokemon following you, ease of scrolling through items, start menu present on bottom in overworld (without having to press X), WAY easier to read text of attacks during battle = all minor but important improvements in HG/SS over platinum.
Now for me, it is no contest, HG/SS brings back so much nostalgia, as Silver and Red were the two games I played to no end back when they first came out. I have a hard time connecting with the 4th gen pokemon, and even the 3rd gen for that matter. Call me old school, but HG/SS is my game of choice.
