    Emulated Games vs. Marketplace

    Until developers are given a chance to fully utilize the capabilities of the DROID and the storage availability of the SD card, I just don't see any Marketplace games competing with the level of research and detail that were put into the old Nintendo and Sega games.

    The Gameboy Advance is the most recent system out of all of them and even though it has trouble with some games, the ability to play more recent titles has been enough to satisty my gaming needs on the DROID.

    Has anyone really found any Marketplace games worth keeping/worth the purchase price?

    A guy at work showed me a 3D racing game on his touch where you tilt the screen to steer (but that's about it) and it looked and sounded amazing.

    some people here swear by Quake on the Droid, but i'm sticking to emulated ROMs for now. some cool GBA games out there (although many DO NOT work)... and most SNES games work

    I'm pretty disappointed on the GBA games that don't work. I wish they did, but I've been playing the hell out of Mario vs. Donkey Kong. LOL.

    Sometimes I feel like SNES has too many buttons and I forget what does what. Sega has almost the exact games as SNES but the graphics/sound are inferior in comparison. However, games on SEGA play WAY better than SNES.

    I have save states from another emulator on my WinMo phone. I need to see if I can hack them to work with these emulators. I don't want to start over. lol.

    i'm glad i'm not the only one with that problem. i was bummed about those exact games. also, don't even bother downloading the 32mb kingdom hearts game. lol.

    i wonder the mechanism as to why some games work, and others don't... not like mario golf/tennis are more graphics intensive than any other game

    Where do you get the Roms? I won't have my DROID for another 2 weeks, but I want to play Excite Bike. Damn I'm feeling old.

    Can you honestly say even with the capability developers will be able to ever achieve the raw vintage feel that any of those classic games has? (There's people who swear their NES and SNES/GENESIS have better replay value than any modern day console for that matter...except for a few standout titles.) The only thing that allows current day games to compete is the idea of true multiplayer.

    You can give me any modern-type game that would be phone based and I'd take an emulator/rom combination any day of the week.

    yes LordKastle, agreed. however if you've used the iPhone, they have some real quality games... i know, i downloaded tons of them on my jailbroken iPod Touch ... hope we see the same quality or better on the Droids, and i will certainly pay for them
