But then we reach one of the most obvious questions; is it? From my experience, it most certainly is not. I don't believe it's the most underrated one actually. I actually expect to see more praise for gen III than any other generation, to be honest, and that doesn't match up at all with generation III's rumor, now does it?
Besides, it uses the word "bashing". You'd have to look far and wide for the real bashing, and it's usually done by individuals, it's not a general attitude. Valid criticism isn't bashing.
In case someone mentions the lack of this phenomenon with Gen II: Gameboy games generally are ruled by nostalgia and the gap between now and then is too big for a serious comparison

I have yet to see this general trend, which is why I wanted to look at what people thought here. I believe that many fans look at generation III as a victim, something it most certainly doesn't deserve at this date. They react all defensive and call criticism bashing.In case someone mentions the lack of this phenomenon with Gen II: Gameboy games generally are ruled by nostalgia and the gap between now and then is too big for a serious comparison
I don't buy that. They are equally available for comparison, but you can directly compare the games like they are equal. The newer games have had longer time refining the formula.
I don't look at my Gold purely with nostalgia, I hate nostalgia because it kills innovation.
