Do you like playing retro games? If so, do you use emulators or do you still own older consoles? I use a mix of both, but honestly I love using actual hardware more. It's legit, and most of the emulation issues you run into obviously don't exist on actual hardware. :P Especially when it comes to Genesis emulation, I love hearing the awesome FM synths on actual hardware because emulators can't properly emulate their sound.

I sometimes play retro games on my PS3 or Wii via emulation- for example, the Harvest Moon SNES game! I also have two N64s that I played with up until about six years ago when we moved to this apartment and couldn't find either one. (one was mine from childhood, the other was my cousin's that got left to us with all his games~)

As a PC gamer, I tend to focus on retro PC gaming. Since PC gaming is obviously a little bit younger than console gaming, most of my retro selections are from the mid to late 1990s and the early 2000s. :P

If we're talking about retro pc games in particular, my favorite is definitely Total Annihilation.
