Emulators, which are programs that perform like (or emulate) old pieces of hardware, have been around for decades. But the best thing about modern emulators are their file size and playability. There are emulators for almost any game machine under the sun including arcade machines (using an emulator called MAME), the Nintendo N.E.S. and the original Game Boy. To play them you technically have to own the cartridges of software you’re attempting to emulate, but this is not always the case.
