Half yes, half no.
Retro games, whether you've played them before or not, have that "retro" feeling. Probably has to do with the simplicity of games back in the day, or somethin'... That's what I was referring to. There's just somethin' nice 'bout playing retro games every once in awhile. It's refreshing.
... That, and I'm just not at all a fan of Hoenn. I'll never recommend RSE over any other mainstay 'mon RPG.
