How to play your favorite retro video games again?


Gaming technology has evolved a lot and while the days of bulky gaming consoles with unreliable cartridges have been replaced by sleek PlayStations and Xbox systems, everyone loves a trip down the memory lane. If you wish to know how to play your favorite video games of the past, explore the list of options that we have compiled for you.
  • Emulation
With the wide availability of PCs in the modern age and their high processing capabilities, PCs became the experimental platform where developers made emulators that simulated the same environment as a retro gaming console. Emulators are a platform for games to be played on and their wide availability along with a diverse option to choose from, makes them perfect for almost anyone to play classic games on their systems. You can customize keys and preferences, and the only thing you need to worry about is getting your hands on your favorite games in a digital format.
  • Remasters/Ports
Game developers always knew that classic games held more value to gamers than any new games. This is why many companies and developers have released classic video games in the form of remasters or ports. Remastered games allow you to play these classic games with updated platform support. This means that your cartridge games can now be played on your gaming consoles if your game developer has released a remastered edition of the game. The best alternative is provided by Nintendo which allows you to play a vast library of NES and SNES games on your Switch by opting for the Nintendo Switch Online plan that costs a mere $20 a year.


  • Compilation Consoles
There are dedicated compilation consoles that come with built-in games from the retro era. These consoles are a great way to play games as they support HD output and some unique features like the ability to save your progress in a game. If you lack the CDs or cartridges, this is the best way to get your hands on classic video games and play them on your modern TVs. Some of them include NES Classic, SNES Classic, Sega Genesis Mini, PlayStation Classic, and the TurboGrafx-16 along with some third party options that include the likes of Retro-Cade and Evercade.
  • Retro game systems
Third-party companies like Cybergadget, Hyperkin, and Analogue make cartridge-based systems for you to run your old games on. Most of the current gaming companies have stopped making cartridge-based consoles and a third-party gaming console may just be the cheapest and most reliable option that you could find. These consoles are easily available online and don’t cost a fortune like today’s gaming consoles. Make sure that you check all the compatibility criteria as there are different kinds of consoles available for different games.
  • Original consoles
What is better than paying the original game with the original gaming system that is supported? Original gaming consoles are a rare thing to find, however, through a glance on reselling websites like eBay or a quick drive to a thrift store may just land you the original console with a good condition. With a proper set of adapters, it wouldn’t be difficult to set a gaming console. Be careful as the cartridge-based consoles are a pain to get working and cleaning the disc systems can be tricky.
