Basically I just want to take a moment to talk about emulated games. I recently found out that there is a free GameBoy Advance emulator available for my android phone. SO of course I downloaded it and began to play some of my favorite old GBA games. But what I discovered in doing this is that the emulator really only works for certain types of games, namely those games where having precise timing isn’t important. because of the way the buttons work on these emulated versions ti is incredibly difficult to play a game which takes any sort of timing, you will just lose over and over again because of clunky controls. This was only a surface level observation for myself. But it made me wonder, how might games being played in emulated format, or any other format create a different experience than originally intended. For example is playing Pokemon Yellow the same on GameBoy pocket as it is on an emulator? Also I would like to ask what this might mean for the future of video game history. Such as looking back and playing games where the original system is no longer available.
