    I got them both. They are my favorite video games ever, because of the amazing post game, and extraordinary Dex. And by "Dex" I meant getting extra Starters and a Snorlax. :3 I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who loved 16 gyms and... Ash! He even had the lil Pikachu! Or you could... uh... I guess... call him 'Red', but to me, he's Ash.

    I love them both, I'm playing the. Right now. You might have more luck with this thread in the HeartGold and SoulSilver forum.
    Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.

    Well, Johto is not my fave region nor G/S/C, but I always excited for a new pokemon main series game. So I still enjoyed HG/SS basically, cool addition to the collection.

    I enjoyed getting all the starters. I got Squirtle and Torchic And I also enjoyed defeating Red as well as defeating the gym leaders over again. Its as though after you beat them they decided to EV train or something lol.

    I loved Soulsilver, favorite pokemon game to this day. Silver was the first game I played way back and when I heard that there were going to be remakes I was more excited than I had ever been for a new game. Playing through it, my trusty Cyndaquil and I had a lot of fun, from the gym leaders to the E4 to Red, it was awesome in its purest form.

    SS/HG are still my favorite Pokemon game. For me, nothing even comes close to these games.

    I was excited when I found out my favorite games in the series were being remade, and it lived up to my expectations. The nostalgia was very high while it added new aspects to it. I only had Pokémon Silver, so I never played through Crystal's story, and that helped it stay exciting for me. Even though the Gym Leaders weren't too tough for the most part (still despise Whitney, though), I had a lot of flashbacks battling them, and it made me feel like a kid again. I also liked how they brought in the idea from Pokémon Yellow of having the first Pokémon in the party be outside walking around. It was a very adorable tidbit, and I'm happy they did that.

    Overall, I really like the remakes. It's beautiful, it's nostalgic, it was up to my expectations and more. Getting SoulSilver was really the only reason why I bought a DS in the first place, even if it took me almost a year to get one. I don't regret it in the least.

    I liked how much there was to do in the games, 16 badges, elite four, Red. But once you did all that I got bored real quick. It was my favorite game, but now it's white 2.

    Correct. Of course my non fondness of the game doesn't mean it's my least favorite where Johto holds 4th at the moment being beat by Hoenn. Speaking of Hoenn, I liked how the Weather Trio was included in HG/SS though since I love Rayquaza. Lastly I don't care if I get flamed for this but I disliked the following Pokemon since it doesn't add anything to the gameplay hardly (though making my Typhlosion walk next to the ocean was hilarious).

    I hate to be a downer but this is hands-down my least favorite Pokemon game. I liked Pokemon following you around, the Pokeathlon, and the two regions, but hated just about everything else. Johto as a region was extremely boring, the pokemon were mostly forgettable, hated Silver, the plot was non-existent, and I just lacked a motivation to do anything in the game. It left a pretty bad taste in my mouth and for awhile it made me think I wasn't into Pokemon anymore.

    Favorite DS pokemon game, I really like how your pokemon follow you in this game and I would really hope it would eventually become standard in other titles. I loved playing Pokemon Silver and Crystal and I really like how Soul Silver blends the two a bit. Its a great remake and will be one of my all time favorite games to play, I'm actually starting a new adventure now. Also, I'm glad they incorporated the GTS in the remake, makes getting alot of pokes easier then it was back then.

    Nothing to complain about! It's a remake, there isn't that much they could mess up. I really liked the pokemon-following-you aspect, I don't understand why they didn't decide to add the feature to Pokemon Black and White.

    It has the Neo Team Rocket plot and Silver's character development storyline, in addition to the usually "become the Champion" quest.

    My guess would be because of the balance beams on Route 7 and such.

    Going to punt this over to the HGSS section as it fits there better. After all, it's the section made for those games...

    I greatly enjoyed them, for the record. Partly because I loved GSC, but also because I felt they were well done remakes - a lot of the old stuff remained (maybe not quite enough but oh well) and it was supplemented with a lot of new things to improve and add to the gameplay (yay for rematching gym leaders and the pokeathlon!).

    Never played Gold or Silver, so this was pretty much the first time I explored Johto @_@

    Got SoulSilver and I love it. It seemed a bit too.. not many eventful things happening. Sure there was Team Rocket, but it seemed like their "reign" didn't last too long and I was back to collecting badges <.>
    I haven't explored the Pokeathlon yet, but I have heard its quite fun so I will give it a try once I defeat Red :P I need to grind >.<

    I need to still experience the full game I think, but its awesome so far :P

    Before I got the games, I expected them to be great and really enjoyable. But when I played them, I found them boring and not living up to my expectations at all. Some of my largest reasons this were the non-existent training possibilities and terrible level balance in the games, annoying following Pokemon that couldn't be turned off, and almost nothing to do once you had beaten all 16 gyms. There could have been many fun things to do, but the extremely unbalanced levels and restricted means of training prevented that for me as I don't have the patience to grind against wild Pokemon or using the Pokegear phone to call specific trainers. These games taught me one thing; nostalgia isn't always good, sometimes you need to look forward instead of just thinking back on how good the past was. I'm very happy that the fifth gen games turned out to be so much better than HG/SS, otherwise I would probably have lost all of my interest in the series.
