This reminds me I should hack my Vita already... and my Switch.
I mean I have always been a fan of portable gaming since the past century when I got a brick gameboy with Tetris... but nothing beats the experience of playing on the original hardware, unless it really sucked.
I used an Atari a few times, I don't miss it, the Nes practically made me forget the thing since it was so much better.
And while I love my Dreamcast, the Gamecube was faster.
Heck I played Sonic Adventure so much I could beat some boss fights just using the Dreamcast loading sounds. But in the Gamecube? So much better!
Use to own something like 200 or 300 games from console that I had as a child. (From nes to PS3 basically). Sold everything for personnal reasons. Never regreted it.
No, emulation is not the same. When you do it right, it's a better experience.
