I've been rocking emulation, I guess as legally as possible across multiple platforms, for MORE than a few years. And as limited as the selection is on the SNES Classic, I have to say there's more than enough value even for someone like me. I plug in my console, I get a menu and I'm into the action at near original SNES speeds on my HD TV. Now, I have I streaming box I could run emulators on, and I may do so, but man there is just something to be said about Plug and Play.
You know, unlike current consoles. Where you buy a disk, then install 30GBs onto your console. THEN download a 20GB update. Because somewhere along the line, consoles got fucking moronic and had to copy all the shitty parts of Steam and leave any advantages on the cutting room floor.
Sidenote, I got a laugh out of a Best Buy salesman today while buying a TV and he was trying to get me to buy anything and everything 4K as well. Some Xbone X with a 1 TB HDD was $500. And all I could say was "Holy shit, that's ON SALE? Is the cost normally that they come to your house and kick you in the testicles?"
Go figure they were sold out of Switches and had shittons of Xbones and PSWhatevers.
EDIT : on the install and download bullshit, I am NOT being coy here. My parents bought a XBone for my nephew because they watch him after school . Motherfucking LEGO GTA (whatever the Hell it's called. It's literally G-rated LEGO GTA) was a 15GB install which was AWFUL on a HDD. An then a 15-20GB update. Shit is dumb.
