Quoted from vid1900:
There are a few games that still hold up today, like Demon Attack and Suicide Mission
Everyone has a bunch of emulators, but I never play them because it's too much work, too many versions, too much to scroll through, lol
Give me the simplicity of just turning it on, and playing with a **real** 2600 joystick....
Its not so bad, I'm a single mom and I can do it! (OK I'm not a single mom). I really haven't spent much time messing with the emulators, they seem to work out of the box OK for the most part. You can get usb controllers for most of the old platforms, but I just play with a Microsoft 360 controller, it works surprisingly well for a lot of games.

You can even view the manual before you play right on the screen.

MAME games are fun, but most of them need a better controller than the gaming pad.

Asteroids playing on an LCD monitor, oh the humanity Its pretty fun though. I do actually have modifications loaded for this game to emulate the vector monitor, they're in there!
