It's been about three years, when I was a senior in High School, since I have played a Pokemon game. By the time I played Soul Silver, the game of the time, I was already on my way out. Soul Silver appealed to me as a modernization of my favorite Pokemon games, Gold/Silver, because of the concepts they introduced that were dropped in subsequent Pokemon games. However, much like Pearl/Diamond, it didn't go enough in the right direction. I wanted more story, more interactivity with the world (things more modern RPGs have given me).
A couple of nights ago I had a dream where I was playing a Pokemon game. It wasn't Pokemon X/Y, it was just a random one (that doesn't actually exist). Still, it got the bug in me to want to play a new Pokemon game, even to experience some of things that have bored me about the series in the past through repetition. I hope there will be a better story, and again I hope for more to the world, but I'm nto betting on those things.
Still, info on what this game is going to be is still pretty scarce. So it made me wonder if there are another people out there excited for this game, and what their reasons are. Would you like something new? Or something old? It is just random curiosity, if you find this thread tiresome then you are more than free to ignore it. I just want to hear your thoughts.
