    Gen 3 is known for having a very...brassy...soundtrack. Did you enjoy it in the games? How did you feel about ORAS' updated orchestrated versions?

    Personally, it's my second-favorite generation in terms of sound (just behind Sun/Moon). Each generation has a specific sound-type that makes it unique from the others - part of the genius that is Junichi Masuda - and I believe the brass emphasis for Hoenn fits it.

    I like the ORAS update, as it gives the tracks additional depth due to the hardware storage updates between the two. However, the one thing I dislike is how it seems to take some cues from X/Y's soundtrack rather than keeping its original, unique soundprint (though admittedly this is more of a problem with the new tracks than with the remastered ones so it isn't that huge a deal).

    I haven’t entirely played through any of the Hoenn games but I like the music. It’s not my absolute favorite, but it’s still good. The ORAS songs (from what I’ve heard) do a good job on updating the songs, but still giving old fans a sense of nostalgia (a perfect example of both is primal groudon/kyogre’s theme)

    I vastly prefer the ORAS soundtrack. The “doh” and “beh” sounds of the original always sounded unappealing to me.

    I love both! ORAS definitely did a good job with the remixes and there were some that continue to stand out, like Sootopolis' theme, Deoxys' battle (aaaaa love this one), and the Contest Hall. I've listened to the tracks a lot since I've played the game for over 300 hours, haha. Nice to listen to some of my favorite tracks in more depth because there aren't so many hardware limitations, like ShinigamiMiroku said.

    I love both, the old for just nostalgia and ORAS because the music is just plain good imo. The updated sound fits the games but still gives the feel that is still the Gen 3 music we know and love.
