I just cannot get into emerald

Even playing with nuzlockes and normal playthroughs, I always quit when I'm at slate port city. I want to beat the elite 4, but it just gets so boring. I guess it's hard for me to go back to those games when the improved gen 4 and 5 are there.

I can't blame you. It is a pretty bad game.
do you wanna die or just come real close?

That's what you get for skipping it. I didn't play D/P (went straight for Platinum), but if what I've read about tha pacing there is true, I don't think Emerald is worse than that.

It's really difficult to have fun playing the old games when they don't have the physical/special split, the many new Pokemon and also new attacks and stuff.

Not sure if anyone else experienced this, but when I went back and played Gen 1-3 again, Gen 3 took me much longer than the previous two to finish. And not in a good way. Everything seemed slower and more drawn out.

It was a chore for me to finish. And unlike Gen 4 (also a chore), it doesn't have the benefit of the Physical/Special split or improved graphics.
