G3/Core 7
Why does so many people hate generation 3?

39 posts in this topic

Here a positive thing about G3 and same goes for G1 and G2. At least they don't keep reusing the same characters for the figure.  Plus you have to see G3 though the mind and the age of a 6-8 year old. Who cares if it's all fluff and not educational. As a kid watching this I'm sure wouldn't  give a damn about learning. And only think about 'oh how carefree they are"  

 

Of course as adult and watching G3, people would hate it. Our mind matured and we want educational things thus  viewing the old mlp though judging it by "god this sucks, G4 all the way. "

 

in short if you don't like the old generations, just step away from it and leave it alone as it is. The kids loves it anyways. 

I agree with you I like the different poses for the figures of the older generations as well I prefer to collect the figures then watch the shows, but your right children are not going to care if it has a life lesson in it or what they look like all they know is that their colorful ponies that sing.

I don't hate it. I just find it cringy, and the animation of it is borderline horrifying. But the little girls who watched it (90% I'd say of the audience at least) don't really seem to care about the horrid animation and the lack of plotlines for the most part. Of course of the pilot because I couldn't watch more because the animations were just unbearably cringy to me.

 

But one to their own I guess. If you can tolerate something with tons of fluff and little story with a disturbing animation style, I don't have an issue with that.

Well the art style for generation 3 is not ugly, but different each generation brings a different drawing style.

same here, I collect more than I watch. Also,  I give them credits for showing that they put the effort on the design for old generations figures. Colorful singing ponies, yeh that pretty much ties everything.

Some figures are really pretty I find the generation 2 babies to be sooo adorable and I agree with you with generation 4 figures always being the same maybe they'll have a figure with a hoof up, but the rest are all standing and back then the poses were named after the ponies so you saw one and your like o that;s so so pose and not only that they had animal friend figures some had baby ponies that went with them others were just alone so I feel the creativity was big in the older generations, but in the end mlp is just going to be about singing colorful ponies not much more to say about it lol.

and let not forget the scented ones too.  Plus not only that  but their eyes is very detailed as well (G1-G3), overall great, great quantity for a mlp figure.  Now it kinda a bit well, plain,

I agree I like the older generation figures, but sometimes the scented ponies would smell funky lol, but my favorite is the twinkle eye ponies and the sparkle ponies are pretty as well and your right the eyes are more detailed and the cutie marks had more detail to them with the older gens.

I actually own a few of the scented ponies one in particular I own does not smell like what its supposed to. To be honest I have no clue on what it smells like but the best way I could describe it as well it smells funky not like the cherry scent it is said to have. My personal favorite is the sparkle bodied ponies. Also Chaos you know what im talking about dosent help you ripped the neck plug out when I asked you to take her head off for me

I haven't watched g3, so I don't know. Judging from the comments above I think I don't like it to much. :)

I don't hate it, but I'm not a big fan of it either... because of how different from the previous gens it is.

It replaced G2, which was my favourite pony Generation (design - wise). I liked the G2 ponies for how graceful they looked with their long legs and necks. And I liked their delicate facial features! ♡

Meanwhile the G3 ponies were shorter and bulkier than the G2 ones. Plus, most of the G3's official art featured ponies with strong, square-ish nose and brow ridges (ever noticed that? They look so weird! D: ) and I HATED it. 

G3 also came out right when I transformed into an angsty teenager. XD My dark soul despised all things colorful and happy, so in my heart there was no room for the pastel equines. XD

People hate G3 because of the obscenely scary horse faces D:

^The stuff of nightmares, I swear :o

 

But use the old G4 machine and it fixes everything!

^Kawaii, sock-loving ditzy pony; 150% Brony approved!

 

The other reason people don't like G3 is it is clearly targeted to a VERY young female demographic; with messages like "Every girl is a princess in her own heart and the hearts of her friends". Not to mention the insanely OVERSATURATED color palette, which will have any adult experiencing eyestrain after a mere 40 minutes!

 

^Ugh, those colors are making me want to vomit as I type Q.Q

It is quite a shame since, on occasion, the bright vibrant visuals create quite the (tasteful) spectacle never before seen in any other Gen of MLP!

^Screenshot straight from the show (from the episode "Come Back Lily Lightly fyi, which just so happens to be my 3rd favorite ep of G3 /)^3^(\ ) Scenes like this just evoke such potent emotions from me; it's like something straight out of a dream from my childhood ^///^

 

Another reason people don't particularly care for G3 as a whole, is the super saccharine tone and braindead writing. It comes off as pandering to youngsters in the same kinda way as Dora the Explorer (treat your viewers with some RESPECT, gosh dang darnit! xD)

Lastly, I'd say it lacks the incredible musical numbers of generation 4. Nothing even close to being on par with "Pony I wanna Be" or "The Magic Inside" for example. However, I have managed to find quite a few songs from G3 that have impressed me on all fronts:

 

 

 

^Some really quality stuff, if i do say so myself :o

 

G3 has been the butt of jokes for countless years on the interwebz. It wasn't until G4 came out and shattered all prior expectations that MLP finally garnered some respect from the adult cartoon-loving community. While G3 is a far cry from the lofty heights of cinematographic and literary mastery exhibited in G4, it STILL has quite a lot of entertainment value if you are willing to go in with an open mind and dig deep enough. 

My personal top 3 episodes would be:

#1 The Runaway Rainbow

#2 Friends Are Never Far Away

#3 Come Back Lily Lightly

Gen 2 is a favorite of mine as well they look like Arabian horses to me which is my favorite breed of horse I don't like the magic motion figures, but the gen 2 babies are adorable I like the gen 3 figures I find them really pretty the show I did not care for since I am more of a collector then a watcher I would prefer to watch generation 1 then generation 3.

I would prefer to watch generation 1 then generation 3 my favorite being Escape from Midnight Castle and others from the gen 1 series I am more of a collector then I am a watcher, but I do like some episodes/movies from gen 3, but would prefer to watch gen 1, but I feel each gen brings its own unique trait to mlp except newborn cuties that brings nothing, but nightmares lol.

"They're ugly and scary because they look like horses.*

One of the most baffling complaints from the brony troll machine yet.

*Rolls eyes*

Some things are to be loved, others are to be hated. But worst of all, is to be forgotten. That's what happened with G2 ponies, they are so forgotten as evidenced with the quote you quoted, AND they mistake My Little Pony Tales as G2 :lol:
