Something before Emulation? - September 28, '98 by JoseQ
Don't you feel the urge sometimes to fire up R-type on your favorite SMS emulator? How about Vigilante on the PC-Engine emulator? Sometimes we have a favorite version of a game that's simply not the original one, maybe because of that feeling of Nostalgia, where you remember how much you'd enjoy the cool Out Run music on your Commodore 64. Sometimes we just need to remember those good old games, and the good old home conversions.
Before Emulation, we had to settle for the home versions of our favorite games. A new site on the internet, with desire to document the variants of favorite arcade game conversions is Classic Gaming Conversions. This site features pictures of some old games like Out Run, R-type, Space Harrier and others, running on those old platforms like the Amiga, C64, Atari ST and a lot of other consoles or computers that used to be your only solution to your gaming needs. I suggest you take a look and you'll smile when you see the differences between the various versions of the games.
I find sometimes, that playing the Sega Genesis version of Strider, even though Callus and MAME play the original game, is as much fun as playing the original. I think because MAME doesn't bring only the fun of the game, but the good feeling of those good'ol times when you were younger. I suggest you take a look at the above mentioned site, then fire up those good and fast SMS, Genesis, SNES emulators and have some fun like you used to in the yesteryears, you will probably enjoy it just as much.
