To be fair, I have yet to play the new DAH, but from all indications, it seems like a great remaster with a few tweaks.

Keep in mind, I played the original on the Xbox way back in the day, and it wasn't anything super amazing to write home about in the first place, but it was very interesting while it lasted, so it will be especially interesting to see if the changes they made will extend its replay value.

As for Pokemon, though I think it is getting another remaster in the vein of Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, it's not gonna be nearly as faithful to the original as HeartGold/SoulSilver (even though, yes, they did add a lot in the remakes). While the HG/SS remake did add a bunch of new stuff, it never felt... Subtractive, I guess. It kept everything that made Gold/Silver what it was, and enhanced it, whereas a remake like Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee would be a large departure from the original formula entirely so as to be practically a different game.

Eh, Its alright. Aside from the second stage of the last of boss, It's alright. Oddly though, browsing the archives causes the ps4's fans to go into overdrive for seemingly no reason

Thought I should add, I only briefly played the original back on the ps2, so I can't really compare the two.
