Older Gamers: For older games, do you prefer the original console/controller, or do you like the bells and whistles of emulators?
When you’re feeling nostalgic and you want to boot up an old game, which do you prefer?
Obviously, the original consoles capture the feeling a bit better. You have the original controller, you might find your old saves, and really you know you’re playing the game as it was intended.
However, emulators add a few extra features now. Rendering engines that offer anti-aliasing, the option to use almost any controller (including wireless ones) and even network play add a whole new life to old games.
I know a lot of times it depends on the game, but given the options, which would you pick?
