I've been waiting for a Zelda ALTTP for a long time! Can't wait to play it!

Emulated both of these on my phone. No need to waste money buying them.

Yes, but some people don't want to play games illegally. And unless the files you have on your phone came from the copy that you bought and not from the internet, it's not legal.

I like supporting developers and publishers for their work.

LinkOnABoat1513d ago

They are from copies I bought about 100 times. This is Nintendo after all.

lmao illegal, only if sega knew the persistence of breaking the law to get free games, the dreamcast would of never failed and sega would be here. Your on a gaming site 98% of people on here emulate

I agree. I will be the first to say that I modded my Wii; however, I only played games that I had imported from overseas. Oh, and roms that they refuse to release! Come on! Release Lufia and Lufia II! I want you to have my money!

If the file came from a legit copy that you actually own, then you already wasted your money on it.

However, some of us don't own these game and don't feel as if we're entitled to free copies.

I've been doing emulation for long time but it never stopped me from getting the authentic versions whenever they get released, and believe me when I say emulators never truly "emulate" the original experience, they are FULL of visual/sound bugs and glitches, sometimes missing sound or certain frames entirely. They are a headache to use, get ROMs and upgrade them. The control on the phone sucks and frustrates beyond even the value of being free, and the wireless controller emulators are finicky with difficult, time consuming setup that you gotta do like a ritual every time you want to play a game that's not even working properly. It's not only about the "legal" aspect of it, but the quality, authenticity and practicality of the whole process. But I guess in the end some people are cheapskates who prefer to go through all this headache and time wasting to play a most likely broken game on the worst possible interface "phones" with no buttons, d-pads or joysticks instead of paying a little and getting the complete authentic experience with the best control options. It's a way of life.

You do realize you don't HAVE to buy the games each time they're re-released?
