playing old video games
    #2873979 - 07/09/04 08:10 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I grew up on NES, sega master system and genesis.
I keep having happy memories of playing certain games. I download the emulators online that let you play the systems on the computer. When I play the games on my computer they aren't fun really anymore. Playing some of them sort of made me sad.

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

There's a few for every system made. I just search on google. The game files themselves are called 'roms'.

Zophar's Domain should have every emulator out there.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

^^ that is correct...

playing nintendo games on a keyboard just isn't right

you have to go to computer store, and buy a controller.. plug into usb.. bam

here are some good links for roms and emulators

http://www.romnation.net/
Just vote and start downloading..

for super nintendo games - http://www.omlclassics.com/

cant seem to find my other links at the moment..

Here is the address for that Zophar's Domain site
www.zophar.net
I got a deal on eBay, 2 controllers (PS1/PS2 controllers) that work on Playstations but they also have the USB connector so I can hook it up to the computer and play NES, SNES, GB, etc. games, just look up "PC USB Controller" on ebay. I wonder if they have adapters for the old NES controllers, then you could get that blocky controller and play the old games.

Shit, they didn't even have video games when I was really little.  I remember when my dad brought home a "pong" system.  First commercial video game system, I think.  We were all in awe that we could actually interact with the TV!! :shocked:

I had an Atari 2600 when I was in High School.  That was the shit then! :crazy:

Rock on brotha. It's been a gradual evolution from Pong. I've played my share of Intellivision.

My favorite NES games are Ikari Warriors and Wizards and Warriors. Not cause they are the best games necessarily but I just remember the fun times I had playing with friends at different times in my childhood. I haven't tried playing them again yet though, they probably suck.
