    I can relate to this on an emotional level.

    I like owning original consoles, but the convenience of having all the games ever in one place is simply too good to pass up vs the original experience IMO.

    Though that said, I'll occasionally setup one of my consoles and give some game or another a good playthrough "au naturel", as they say, for old times sake.

    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!

    Nice one, for the most part I use emulatiors to play old games.
    But I do have Commodore 64 and Amiga 500 setups for my retro moments ;)

    My theory is that these tempy kids are squatting in that flop house and got their entertainment equipment from a salvation army. Or they just go out robbing people and bringing the loot back.

    Edit: quick second thought is that they are in some isolated center for mutants who are big into pirating old video games

    Emulation is a nice addition. Sometimes it is more convenient. But nothing beats the feeling the old consoles give used on a CRT. For me there is no

    “A whole lot of old cartridges and consoles – OR – emulation on modern devices.”
    but
    “A whole lot of old cartridges and consoles – AND – emulation on modern devices.”​

    Some NES games are extremely punishing which makes it hard to resist the save state functions. I made the rule for myself: “Beating a game only counts when done on original hardware.

    I can relate to both sides in this comic.

    Playing on real hardware is always the best, as it's the real experience imo.
    Having backups is always good though.

    My collection (I should take a new photo as a lot of things are missing on the photos)

    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.

    I noticed the game collection on the shelf where one scumbag publisher has to be "different" and make the spine a different colour.
