AWWW YEAH! I just got all 8 badges in Johto Region on SoulSilver, a bit of a rough fight with the Gym Leader Clair but I beat her first try. I realize that none of the casual games I play today give me this feeling of the first 2 words of my post. Right when I beat her I hopped up off the couch, jumped around and danced a bit . Keep in mind its 2AM and everyone is asleep, I wouldn't do such a thing in front of people. Anyway.|
It could be the nostalgic feeling, but I don't remember playing Pokemon Gold/Silver from when I was younger. Like, at all-I know I played it, I have my cartridges in my Gameboy cartridge book both with my names on the back, but I don't remember beating the gym leaders or who my team was or anything. (And the cartridges have lost the save progress)
Ever since I watched this YouTube video (Almost 19 minutes long FYI):
I wanted to recapture that feeling again or find it because I don't remember it. I was playing before but didn't have any real motivation, but once my mom started playing hers, I got it, now I'm farther than her by a badge. Its awesome, haven't felt like this from a video game in awhile.
Also, I'm not a real PokeManiac, I've just been enjoying Pokemon a lot when I joined here. The last game in the franchise I played was Diamond/Pearl, which I don't know if I finished it or not.
