    it seems like Droid has been the gift that keeps on giving every since i got it.... i finally start messing around with emulators and got one for the sega genisis... lo and behold i found a rom for Joe Montana football by sega.... the very 1st Joe Montana! are you kidding me..? so i start to load it up and i got my fingers crossed hoping it's just a lil bit close to the best game i think i've ever owned... IT WAS PERFECT(graphics were crisp and game play was excellent).... just like i remembered and it's just as fun to play... that was my freshman year at Bama and it brought back some great memories...

    on another note.... if they ever make EMUs for PS2 or PS3 (im sure someones on it now) then game devs will really have to step their game up.. roms seem like the way to go...

    I know the feeling, after years of not being able to play it, I literally got chills when I loaded up Total Carnage (SNES) and got to hear that old familiar, "TOOOOOOTAL CARNAAAAAAAAAAAAGE" yell at the beginning of the game :icon_ banana:

    When I loaded up sonic the hedgehog 2 after 16 years since my last play thru I got a awarm fuzzy feeling inside and a nostalgia attack. The ROMS all run perfectly on the droid its like having my SEGA genesis for the first time all over again

    Youngsters.
    I remember when PONG came out, I was 20.
    Just stared at that little white square moving back and forth.
    It was the kewlest thing.

    Yeah would be a long walk outside if you lose a game..... "hey, dude what's that on the back of your pants?" "Nevermind... its just my footprint"... yeah those were the days... would be great if you could play friends on the network.

    Let's get it to run an emulation of the Mattel Football handheld.

    That will be an achievement!

    emulators are great, but there are hardware limitations.

    I don't think the Droid can even run a ps1 game, don't quote me on that though.

    I don't know how powerful future devices are going to be but that's gonna be quite the videocard if it can handle ps3 games. That could be another decade down the road though. Never know with how fast technology advances...

    i'm sure you're right especially with all the buttons you would have to assign and adjust too.. but i'm really talking more ps2 than 3
