Are you one? I most certainly am. The first 2 Gens hold a VERY special place in my heart. Any of you play the newer Pokemon games? Or do you just continually re-live nostalgia and play R/B/Y/G and G/S/C romhacks?

If I'm completely honest, generation 1 is probably my least favourite generation. I didn't grow up with them, so I don't have the nostalgia everyone else has with them. They're examples of games that haven't particularly aged well at all, exacerbated by all the bugs and weird design choices made throughout the game. That's not to say I don't like the Kanto region itself, however: Pokemon Gold and Fire Red were my first Pokemon games, with Pokemon Gold improving on everything the original did wrong (incidentally my favourite generation) and with Pokemon Fire Red being a remake of Pokemon Red, everything else in that game seems like a step down.

I have a special place in my heart for gens 1 and 2 but I wouldn't call myself a genwunner. To me that label implies someone who outright rejects the other gens, "there are only 151/251 pokemon" etc. I have a soft spot for 1 and 2 (and even 3 to some extent) but I like all gens.

First PKMN game was Yellow. But my favorite (other than Gen1/2) is HGSS. I've broken it so many ways by just walking around it's not funny.
