I find it really hard to enjoy Gen I again

the music gets irritating quickly, the sprites are ugly and the mechanics aren't smoothed out yet.

I can go back to gen II and enjoy it just fine, but not gen I.

I can, but I have to try and remember a whole different set of rules.

I also have to remember that there are few things more annoying in all of Pokemon than trying to catch Snorlax in Gen 1...back when wild Pokemon didn't have to follow PP rules so it could use Rest as much as it damn well pleased...

I never listen to the music in a pokemon game, except when I want to annoy my friends.

I love replaying gen 1, exactly BECAUSE it's not smoothed out. So simple~
That, and casually playing on a 12 year old handheld in public feels pretty nice too.

The one thing I DO like about Gen 1 is how they handled the bike music.

When you get on your bike, the bike music plays until you get your ass off that bike.

Now it seems like I get on my bike, ride 20 steps onto some route, and the bike music is gone.

The music? I just started a new playthrough and thats one of the highlights so far. Until the 3rd or 4th town, Black's music hurt my ears

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

Same, but I don't think that's a reason to bash the gen. For its time, it was a great game.

I play Blue on an emulator, but I get the most satisfying balance of nostalgia and quality Pokemon gameplay with HeartGold and SoulSilver.

I'm not lying as I have this song play in my head at times very randomly during the day on sometimes an hourly loop.
It sounded good in the remakes too of course but it sounded like Sukamon in the GSC remakes.

The music was so catchy that I found myself randomly hearing it while my game was off... in school or at home.
You have no idea how annoying that is during a test, when you know no one is playing the game but the song is stuck in your head well enough for you to think you really hear it.
Also @OP, just play FR/LG then.
