    I believe games like that are called emulators.

    Google that.

    Strange question considering Paul just posted an announcement about copyrights and not violating them....

    Whether it's truly a copyright violation to rip 15 year old software is still up to debate.
     
  8. Especially when CurbyWrecks said that he owns the game. If you own it, I'm pretty sure its legal to use the emulator for it.

    The only debate is if one choses to follow the rule or not.

    Anybody else feel that modern games pale in comparison to the older games (story and gameplay, not graphics). The only modern game I really like is Gran Turismo 3.

    I can't wait for that Megaman Chronicles game to come out for PS2.

  13. If your into old school games and you've got a PS2, you outta check out the Mega Man Anniversary collection. It has Mega Man 1-8 and 2 unreleased ones, plus it has the old school lookin graphics too. If you're into Mega Man, you'll dig this one.
