getting into retro game emulation


i feel like i missed out on a lot of the nostalgia that a lot of people my age have towards older video games as i was never really allowed to play them, but as a linux user and enjoyer of weird/surreal/obscure media, retro games and emulation are a goldmine. lucky for me, linux is pretty much top of the emulation software game.

it all started when i discovered lsd dream emulator through coming across some screenshots on pinterest during the days before i got into cybersecurity. this was even before i knew what linux was. it looked like such a fascinating game, yet it was only fully playable on the ps1.

the emulators i currently have installed on my laptop are desmume, duckstation, mame. mednaffe, mgba, m64p, nestopia, pcsx2 and ppsspp. i like to explore a variety of consoles. these emulators are all free and open source.

some games i've really been enjoying as of late are mysims (DS), mario kart (DS), neon genesis evangelion - shito ikusei (bandai wonderswan), pokemon emerald (GBA), fester's quest (NES), monster party (NES), taboo - the sixth sense (NES), stretch panic (PS2), we love katamari (PS2), hatsune miku: project diva (PSP), and the obvious lsd dream emulator (PSX).

i don't really know how to end this entry, but if any of this interests you, i'd highly recommend looking into it. also, apologies for not updating this site for a few months. i've been quite busy with school and other life happenings.i've been neglecting my online presence, but i promise to update more from now on.
