I didn't see anything in rules that forbids this question, so I apologize in advance if I missed it.

I'm getting to be an old man and have fallen out of touch with tech/games/internet culture over the last 12 years.

I want to get back into emulation. I see the guide link at the top of the page, but I was hoping to be pointed in the right direction for ROMS. I don't know what sites are best/reputable/not viruses.

Any help would be appreciated.

Why are you people so stupid?
You never noticed because you never had any alternative. Now if you tried the delayed and non delayed versions back to back you would notice a massive difference. Are you mentally retarded?

Probably because it wasnt a delay but input linearity.

You know how you can't turn your steering wheels from a full turn left to a full turn right in an instant.
Well, this mode lets you do just that.

Makes catching drifts easy but also makes driving completely unrealistic.

Shmups never survived on home consoles because you could actually play them long term and see what they were like. At the arcades people had time limits and money constraints so shmups maintained some mysterious appeal.

At home we got to "look under the skirt" and what we found was a shriveled little tranny cock. RIP shmup genre and all the defunct companies who tried to make it work

It is nonetheless a fact that all the great coders who really pushed the C64 hardware were Europeans while American coders seemed to not be aware that you could do anything that wasn't mentioned in the Programmer's Reference Guide.

See I couldn't take that choice. Those are memories I'm happier to have, possibly even been shaped by. Wouldn't be me without them.

Felt that even back in the day, when I'd be in shop with money only for one I'd think - whatever I pick here could have a big impact on me... and I'll forever miss out on whatever I don't pick.

But - FFV would be a blast to rediscover. That job system is as relevant today as ever.

How did this simple "into the screen" formula 1 racing game go from this...


to this?


The cars are a mix of Night Rider and the DeLorean from Back to the Future 2. Though this show was released a year before Back to the Future, so it did the foldable 'hover tire' thing first. It's the least faithful adaption of a video game I have ever seen, but I do like the insane concept.
