Chrono Trigger is one of the greatest, if not best RPG's of all time.
Super Eagle emulation looks far better than standard TV.

With the most current emulators everything looks just as good if not better than originally. Not only that but everything is fully customizable and you can save state anywhere in any game. You can even take screenshots and record gameplay in realtime. In my opinion, that's waaaay better than playing the original cart just for the sake of playing "the original" since they're one and the same thing only that the emulated version provides you with way more options and adjustables.

You don't understand the collector mentality. And I for one don't understand the emulator mentality. Emulators are used to grab screen shots, not for serious playing. I can't play games while sitting at my computer. BORING! I'd rather sit in a nice chair, kick my feet up and relax. But I like people like you who take the original game back and sell it for pennies so I can buy it cheap! Also I've never seen 100% perfect emulation.

Lolzer, computers have TV outs, grandpa!

I have CT, the cart, but I'd rather emulate it so I can save wherever I want. I sit on my couch, make myself a rum and coke, and hit my bo-tobacco water pipe and play. It's an RPG, not an action game. I need six buttons 90% of the time, and four of them are directional.

Welcome to the present, old man!

Good points. I can understand his sentiment as I, too, am a collector, but only when it comes to the biggest, best games (or what I perceive as being such).

Computer cards cannot do 240p. All games are upscaled. For a person who pays attention to detail such as myself, things like that matter. For people to whom details do not matter, then emulation is fine.

Ah well. I feel like I'm arguing with a few 6-year olds here. Fine by me. That means there is less competition to get the real games. Some people just are incapable of understanding, I assume.

PS - DS, give me your Chrono Trigger cart if you'd rather emulate it. You DON'T need the cart!

By that logic (of computers not doing 240p), are you aware that you can shrink the image to fit within a 240p range if you should so desire? As well, you can adjust the monitor's screen resolution and colors.

Your proposal, while cromulent, lacks integrity.

Someone is in a fighting mood.

I wouldn't sell my copy of CT (along with the OFFICIAL(!!!) Nintendo Player's Guide which is kept in mint condition) because I value quality software. (I know you're referring to DS. The portable.)
