How do u play
ROMs?
Actual classic system hardware?
Wii virtual console/ 360 thingie/ ps3 thingie

Personally i did roms for a tiny bit then just said meh. Then I went on a buying spree of old systems and finally sold those off (except ps2). but for $5 i can get my favorite NES games on a system that works and legally! I've gone through the two real zelda's and working on first metroid (w/out the justin bailey cheat tyvm)

Yeah, it's not hard to find older systems, I have a SNES, an Amiga 500 and an Apple //e, I probably paid less that $20 US for the whole lot. I even managed to snag a Mac LCIII for $10 once, it needed a SCSI hard-drive, so I found an old IIci and scavenged and the whole system ended up costing ~$15. old software is harder to come by, I lucked out in grabbing some really good carts for the SNES, and they're not to hard to find, and I was really lucky that my Amiga came in box with some cool games, but all I have on the Apple is a DOS disk. If I run an emulator, it's usually DOSBOX so I can run my old MS-DOS faves (I have more MS-DOS games than I do Mac games).

For these, I use the unit...
C64
NES
SNES

I use the PS2 for the PS games, and the 360 for the original Xbox games.

Yeah...that pretty much covers it.

Oh you are going to hate me

I have an unopened copy of MML2, and no i am not willing to part with it LOL. I fully intend to play it some day . . .

I was big into another game when I picked it up, I knew I wasn't going to play it for a while but knowing how rare it was I went ahead and snagged it. Then i got hooked on MMOs and 6 years later it still sits in my collection un-opened.

Every time i think about replaying it I start up a new game of MML first because i wanna refresh on what happened there. Then i get side tracked by something else LOL. I also have "The Misadventures of Tronn Bonne"

I really wish the series had done much better here in the USA.

If I can get the actual system, I'll play on that. It's much better than emulation. Both ROM and the games on newer systems.

When I can't get the actual system in my possession or the games have never been released in Europe... I sometimes use ROM.
