          Up to Switch so far. I played Xenoblade X last year through CEMU and I don't ever recommend playing it on hardware. It runs 4k at 120fps+ with only 2 glitches. It was one of my favorite video gaming moments of all time.

    when will you fucking retards learn how to emulate? its cleaner, it takes up less space. You are an adult no one fucking cares if you completed the game on legit hardware, and if they do you can just omit it from the conversation. You'll have more room in your house, no one will care about how you have random wii or DS game in box with manual in 30 years. Stop being a fucking retard.

The market for the old games is gonna crash multiple times, with idiots buying up games they think are worth thousands, but it's eventually going to fade into nothingness, all that's left of "retro" collector's are the clowns holding onto rare copies of games that will never sell.

    Emulating does nothing to the collector or the company and bragging about it just makes you look like a silly poorfag.

    Soon it will all be digital the only copies out in the wild will be all that there is.

    Grab High rated niche titles, for best effect. niche games are better because they don't sell a bazillion units. if they are special editions even better.
