What am I playing right now?
Let's see...when I first got into this emulator business just a scant few weeks ago, I was all about the Intellivision Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (Cloudy Mountain). But, I then had a little Pitfall! stint...then Donkey Kong...and had forgot just how bad the Intellivision/Coleco DK port was...so I wound up expanding my horizons with MAME, and had a great time listening and playing the "real" Donkey Kong.
...that led to playing the real original Mario Bros. The possibilities seemed endless, and I descended into madness, first with Time Pilot, and then with the original Asteroids. I tried Defender, but trying to set up the PC controller scheme so that it was something like the old arcade input setup proved totally schizophrenic, so I abandoned it for a time in which I was build an actual stand-up rig with the correct inputs.
...but this new world of preserving legacy arcade experiences titillated me, and I tested other emulators...other titles. Played Final Fantasy for the first time (I was just never into it when it first came out) using NEStopia.
Most recently, I'm having a lot of fun breaking out my original Playstation discs and using ePSXe to revisit my classic library. I just passed Metal Gear Solid again, using an Xbox 360 After Glow controller.
Learning each emulator's peculiar needs has been fun, and I just get endless joy from the well of memories that crop up with each new "old" experience. I even played Dragon's Lair, with the "DAPHNE" emulator and my Digital Leisure DVD...but I have to admit, while it is the same old game, there's still something a little off about it, and it only kind of feels like the same experience.
...that's about it. I think I'm going to try the Final Fantasy stuff for awhile, so I can actually comprehend conversations that my FF-obsessed friends always seem to have, but then I'm going on a big Super Mario brothers binge.
