ITT: Tell us what you're emulating and discuss emulation.

A good site to find games to emulate.

These are the best (in my opinion) PS1 and PS2 emulators.
PS1: https://github.com/stenzek/duckstation (Make sure to up the quality in the enhancement settings.)
PS2: https://pcsx2.net

I'm currently playing through the Legacy of Kain series. I recently finished Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain and it's such a good game. The soundtrack, level design, gameplay, everything is great. The writing really blew me away, I loved hearing Kain speak. His lines are like straight out of some old gothic horror novel.
I'm playing Soul Reaver now. I don't think it's as good but I'm still enjoying my time with it. Raziel is a bit too angsty for me at times. The game still has a cool neo-gothic vibe and the music and writing holds up.


ton of good games on that site, some i've been itching to play
i need to get into emulation since it's near impossible to get a playstation/find those games.


I believe emulation is the best way to play vidya today. No one cares if you pirate these games cause they're all old as fuck, they don't take up much space and there are SO many games to play. It's literally enough to last you a lifetime. Just download one of those emulators and pick a game!


I've been playing Mr. Driller 2 on Visual Boy Advance. I like that series. It's a simple concept, but it works well and provides a fun challenge.


The question i have about emulation though is i'm unsure if it'll impact a games function or playability because of say, requiring a physical console like perhaps metal gear solid. I've never played it and due to the price and the console being non existant emulation sound like a DAMN good deal, but i know that theres supposed to be some "meta" moments in the game where you have to do stuff like move the controller to a diffrent port or something that has to do with checking a ps1 memory card. Can it still be playable or would it break the game?
Satanic trips checked, It's sort of like advanced tetris but where you have to collect air and fuel to survive


Emulators emulate memory cards so that could work. Any game already checks a memory card when you're loading/saving. I'm not so sure about controller ports. There's no "port" so to speak, you just plug a controller in through any one of your USB ports.

OP with a lil update, just finished Soul Reaver. Sad to say it did not live up to the first game. There are good things and bad things about Soul Reaver but the bad things stick out like a sore thumb.
The controls felt very clunky at times, I especially felt this during some annoying platforming sequences and when using the fucking constrict ability. Swimming was terrible.
Gameplay felt repetitive and sometimes tedious. The spectral realm was extremely tedious to cross with all the nuisance-type enemies that respawn every time you enter the realm. The whole game essentially boils down to Raziel sticking enemies and solving block puzzles. The game could also be very cryptic, like the narrator telling you to "go north" when there isn't even an in-game map.
The whole game felt kinda messy, like an ambitious project that was never fleshed out enough. Reading the Wikipedia article on the game confirms that feeling.

I'm still glad the studio decided to try something new instead of just making Blood Omen 2.0. The level design was cool, most of the boss fights were fun, dialogue was well written and the music was good.


Recently I've been playing zzt on dosbox
zzt is from 1991, and it's famous for its accessible yet flexible built-in editor. For more than a decade people have been creating games with it, and even to this day some games are being made. It's fun to explore these creations, even if they're not always refined or great
If you're curious read here for a better introduction: https://museumofzzt.com/about-zzt
Also I've been writing my own useless opinions on the games I play on a neocities page: https://incorrect.neocities.org/zzt.html


ZZT sounds interesting, I've never heard of it before. I've only used DOSBox twice to play some old RPG and some Japanese game called Eastern Mind: The Lost Souls of Tong Nou, a game which I could not for the life of me understand.
