Same game, exclusives are different.

I have Gold because I had it as a kid (still have it and it still works).

Exact same reason for me. I had, and still have, Silver.

cool kids? what that all about?

Nothing but personal preference from childhood version.


Some had Gold, they got HeartGold.
Some had Silver, they got SoulSilver.

If you hadn't owned a version, check up on the exclusives and select which one you'd like.

Expample:
Gold has Growlithe/Arcanine
Silver has Vulpix/Ninetails

Gold has Spinarak/Ariados
Silver has Ladyba/Ladian

I had gold as a kid and now I'm playing soul silver, so what does that mean?

also, can you go online/trade/battle with a backup copy on cyclods? Or do you need a legit copy of the game?

It depends on which version's exclusives you prefer, other than that they're the same.

In the world of Pokemon, the better game is what "sounds best" or which Pokemon on the cover "looks cooler."

In the real world this quote comes to mind:

"Don't judge a book by it's cover"

lolz just messing around.

To the OP:

Well it's really up to preference, which pokemon exclusives do you prefer from either version?
Personally I prefer Gold, plus it has 2 more pokemon overall than Silver.

Assuming anyone actually catches all the Pokemon available in the game before giving up out of boredom.
I'm thinking of quitting Silver and I only have my 4th badge.

Both Ho-oh and Lugia can be caught in both games. But I'm pretty sure the Pokémon on the cover is a lower level than the opposite (LV45 for cover PKMN, LV70 for opposite), so a Lugia caught in HeartGold (LV70) would not be as strong as a Lugia (LV45) caught in SoulSilver if both are at the same level (the difference is in the amount of EVs, or effort values).

...and I grew up with Gold.
