I think the whole Gen 3 thing is that, a lot of people who started with Gen 3 when they were kids ("babies") are older now and more prominent on message boards, which is why suddenly the popular opinion has swerved. Honestly, some of the Gen 3 people here do sound exactly like genwunners - with nostalgia being a very strong, and unhidden reasoning for their favouring of it.
I did start with Gen 3, and nostalgia is a reason why I want those remakes to happen, but I'm not gonna pretend that every other generation sucks. Pokémon is Pokémon.
And yes, I am very defensive about Gen 3, and nostalgia is a reason behind that too, but the main reason is because everyone seems to be concentrating their hatred on Gen 3. And face it, it's not that bad. --- "Before you say anything, I would like to remind you that I am holding an axe." - Sherlock Holmes
