Why is everyone so obsessed with Kanto?

We've been there for four generations of Pokemon games, and the region itself is fairly small and uninteresting. Sure it's nostalgic, but why do we have to keep going back?

I don't mind it appearing in small areas. however, I do agree, Gen III and then IV deserve their time in the remake spotlight.

I absolutely, whole-heartedly agree with the OP.

No, we haven't "been there for 4 generations", we've been there for 2, and then those two gens got remakes. That doesn't make it revisiting Kanto any more than a gen 3 remake would be "revisiting Hoenn".

Not changing this sig until we get a new main series Tales game released on a Nintendo console in the US

FR/LG is part of Gen 3. It has Kanto. HG/SS is part of Gen 4, It has Kanto too. Remakes are part of the Gens they are paired with.

Because nostalgia.

that or we want to see if it's gotten better or worse after Gen 2 **** all over it.

Why can't we go to another region /other/ than Kanto. That would be a swell idea, right?

How exactly did Gen 2 ruin Kanto? I thought it was just fine.
