As much as I hate stereotypical hardcore gamers, what's your idea of one? In my opinion, you're only a hardcore gamer if you have good knowledge of the gaming generations before this one and the one before it. You should also decide what games you like, and not jump in the "everyone has to have that game" bandwagon. Lastly, if you're a true hardcore gamer, you should know that just because a game looks "kiddy," that doesn't mean that it's a bad game.

      Same as Turbos but one thing added. A hardcore gamer should be able to play the game fairly without any cheats.

                    Just remember that's what the Virtual console is. I think to the extreme having the actual arcade version is hardcore! (Baburu, I'm looking at you!)

                      Well, with the exception of the Virtual Console. Everything else is out of the question for me. At least that is legal.

                        Yeah, the Virtual Console is the only exception for me in terms of emulation.

                              I could agree more. While I do not oppose emulation, I do think it's much better and more legal if you own the original games.

                              I even made a wish list for the games I want.

                                So the emulator that runs the games on the Virtual Console is the closest you get to without emulating? What? :shock:
                                No if you say "I'm more hardcore, because I have all the systems and each game and the import versions to boot!" Is that hardcore or the love for said games? Now I respect you guys that want to fill a whole room full of games, because you want the total experience right? Well don't get anymore Virtual Console games in that case and don't play any collections or compilations of old arcade games, instead get the real one! I just don't understand the two sided nature here. Bomberman said no I don't want to mess with unlicensed emulators because they're illegal, and if that's what you mean I respect that just don't be wishy washy. Chance likes to emulate, you don't- but that's your stance keep it. I just wanted to clarify what I saw was happening. I think you should have a reason why you choose, not just because anyone that does is stupid. If I offended you I apologize in advance, just clarify your position.

                                    This is why I own 20 games consoles. And, just like MRCSL1, I made a wishlist of the games I wish to own. I always keep a printed version of the list with me but, I often have to reprint it because it keep growing.
