Never really played any Gen 3 game... did I miss anything?

Playing through Gen III (Sapphire) right now.

You missed:

1) Some nice Gym Battles
2) A very wet map.
3) A really annoying bike system.

A few of my favourite Pokemon come from Gen III, so I won't rag on the designs too much. But I'm right there with you on how dumb the starters look.

At the very least, play Colosseum.

Or, at the very very least, play XD: Gale of Darkness.

Yes, these were wicked.

I'd say if you're a Pokemon fan, you'd probably enjoy the experience. If you liked Gen IV, there's no reason you shouldn't like Gen III for the basis that it wasn't Kanto/Johto. It was revolutionary in its graphical overhaul, and I think it was pretty great. As said before, I'd get Emerald instead of R/S, because Battle Frontier was amazing. The Battle Frontier was worth it just for the challenge- I still play Emerald just for it.

If you loved Gens I and II, then you'd probably like Leaf Green and Fire Red. It's a good compromise with your favorite old Pokemon.
