Default Pokemon ORAS vs Pokemon RS

For those who have played the original games, how do you feel about the remakes?

What additions did you like or dislike?

Are there certain features that are missing in the remakes that you miss from the originals?

well, you get the Exp share in petalburg woods instead of a great ball.
My 3DS friend list is full with people I don't know (mostly) also, Pokemon.

ORAS improves on almost everything from the originals imo (when I force myself to forget Emerald exists...). Though, these are the small things that I was sad that changed:

-No game corner
-Fortree city theme is way different, not a fan of the remix. It's not bad, but it makes me wish it stayed true to the original.
-No old ladies in the hot spring
-Pokeblock minigame removed
-GB sounds was in the game's files, but not in the final release
-You cant see the contest judge like in the originals
-Ending theme is great, and it was nice seeing my whole journey and the pokemon I used, but I prefer the emotional original

Those are all small things compared to all the great things they added:
-I absolutely love Soaring.
-I am always occupied with secret bases. -
The music is fantastic.
-There are some pretty great side/hidden stories (The Mr. Bonding side story was pretty great). Wally's progression in the story was made a lot better and that last battle mixed with the awesome music made everything so epic.
-The updated trainer designs all look great too (I've learned to love May's new design. Brendan, however.....If only we could customize the face and hair, I like the hat, I'd be good with his design).

I was originally so angry that battle frontier wasn't in, but after going through the game, I can live without it. Hopefully there is DLC one day.

I'd say I like ORAS more than RS. And Gen 3 was my favorite generation. One thing I wish they would have freaking done was include Emerald elements. Like, HGSS had everything from Crystal. Why the hell couldnt they include Emerald features......forget about Emerald Jin...just forget it exists....
Endure.......Take over....
