Got any?
Want any?
(to qualify, must be 6th gen or earlier)
I have a PSP, PS1 and Genesis (MegaDrive) emulators and a PS2 that I got today with 14 games and a PS1 controller for $40. Only 5 good games though...

Ultimate console: NinToaster ;)

Used to have a PS1, but it broke.

I still have PS2 though, which I consider the best of Sony's consoles. PS3 isn't fully bad, but it's lack of backwards comparability and consist freezes/crashes with many games just doesn't compare.

So we're saying that GameCube, PS2, Xbox, GBA, PSP are classic? Hah.

Those were only introduced for a limited time in North America. It's standard for all PS3s in Japan, but anyone in this hemisphere who didn't grab one fast enough was stuck with one without the backwards capability.

Consoles are just trying to do what computers can do already. And tbh their modding community is 5 years behind ours. PC for the win!

It's not a "classic" though.

PC is better for a lot of games. RTS games especially but they lack some of the arcade fun of consoles like fighting games.

Now that I'm older and have my own money I'm thinking about finally getting one of these.

PC does have a lot of advantages but PC gaming is becoming more and more dependent on high speed internet. ( You used to be able to just download games straight off the disc, now it seems you're hard pressed to find a game that doesn't demand Steam and by extension good internet.

Consoles are MUCH friendlier to those without top of the line internet.

Yes, but steam games do have offline modes, which can be very diverse games especially when top-tier players aren't abusing game exploits.

Console games also require Internet if you want to play online, and look at titanfall, the first big hit: Multiplayer only.

I really hate people who obsess over retro games like Zelda though. They're honestly pretty crappy. Windwaker is a game that is very on par even by today's standards though.

I hate the recent console war. Like forbidden said, it's just consoles trying to be PCs.

P.S. Just found my old PS2, now have two controllers, 5 memory cards, and one of the games failed to work :)

anyway... anyone good with emulators?

So far:
PS1: Works
PS2: Might work once I put a disk instead of an ISO in.
PSP: Works, although one game runs doublespeed.
Atari: will move but doesn't take damage, fire etc.
Genesis/Megadrive: Works better than fine, easiest so far.
Xbox (the original): Can't get it to work.
Dreamcast: *crying motions*

Anyone got tips for emulators?

Wow I've never seen that one. It says the games were on cassette and I did play a few Atari quality games on cassette.

Anybody ever seen one of these?

rare made games for the spectrum before they were called rare. *Edit, i belive they were called "ultimate Play the game" back then.

i dont think ive seen that thing before, it looks like that one toy (powerman i think it was called?) that had a saturday morning cartoon that had sections where you shoot your tv and the toy counts your score.

wii, wiiu, and 3ds have a decent library of successful hits in their virtual console, psvita, ps3, and psp have a good chunk of ps1 games (ps3 has some ps2 games). Sure youll never see games from some less popular systems like the zx spectrum mentioned above, but youll have a good footing on true gaming classics (and lets be honest, the NES', SNES', and PS1's libraries make up ~75% of the best 'retro' games.
