Gaming Nostalgia

I recently stumbled across an emulator with one of my favourite games growing up. Nostalgia at its best.


In computing, an emulator is hardware or software that enables one computer system (called the host) to behave like another computer system (called the guest). - Wikipedia

I hadn't played Mario Kart 64 since childhood and forgot how much fun it is. Sure the graphics are terrible but the satisfaction of reliving a great game is worth the squinting. Outdated graphics are a neat reminder of the speed at which technology is improving.


The site is called https://www.playemulator.com/ and there is a decent amount of beloved games ready to be played for free.

The obvious question is do they have GoldenEye? And to that I give you a quick yes so you can stop reading now and click the above link. Go on, I won't be offended.


Thanks for sticking around. Like I was saying, the variety and selection is spot on by dropping the dead weight and sticking to what we want.

There are games for Nintendo 64, Sega, Super Nintendo and more ready to eat your time like Pac-man on a weird white dot.


If you don't feel like playing but still want a nostalgia fix then watch me play.
