Real gaming consoles, for sure! The Emulators have some functions that can help a lot like save states, record your gameplay and so on. This is really useful when it comes to older games. But nothing is better than play the game the way it is originally meant to be played: in a console with a joystick and prefeberaly with a couch to sit on ^^

On an emulator, I can screenshot. I just wish I could hook an N64 controller up to my computer...

They sell USB N64 controllers on eBay and such.

Some real gamers will say the real gaming consoles. What if they could bring back old-school video game consoles and its games? It will be awesome!

The Dreamcast is my all-time favorite.

I can tell that you think the Dreamcast is underrated. I hope there will be a Dreamcast 2.

Dreamcast 2?
Sega discontinued the console making business 'cause of money and lost to the PS2 and Gamecube.

Some people are actually spreading rumors about the Dreamcast 2, which is probably baloney and is a harmless rumor.

I think it's better to actually use the console it was designed for. I mean, for computer gaming, a PC emulator for Mac might not be so bad. Some games specifically say not to play on an emulator though. Besides, Emulators are expensive!
Reply
:iconhannahdoma:
HannahDoma Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Indeed.
But I wonder how Emulators are expensive? They're mostly downloaded fer free. :hmm:

I must be thinking of something else  that is like emulators... A while I ago- I looked into getting PC for Mac (Don't have it) and you needed to get an emulator. I think it costed around 300-500 USD

cos I'm not supposed to have "fun"
according to my dad.


Which is why I get portable game consoles, so I can play in secret :paranoid:

Emulators for me, as I got rid of all my gaming consoles years ago, especially my SNES when it broke down in 2005 :(

Using a keyboard is pretty tough when it can't be compared to a real controller though.
