I have been playing on a lot of emulators recently. Someone told me that I should actually buy the games and not get them illegally, but I  don't have the money to go out and buy a new N64 with all the games I want. Do you think it's OK to use emulators? Why or why not?

Well the N64 is completely obsolete and finding a new one would be hard. Personally it is your choice and a survey (though i did not think to copy the source grrrrr) found that of those that pirated via emulators would buy the games personally if they were cheap enough and support the franchise making them. Some people who use emulators are sending the message that certain game content suck or is too pricey or too much DLC. Whatever the case, people that pirate more than likely do so for one of these reasons than just outright pirate just because. Remember good and bad can only be viewed through your eyes. Choose your choice.

Emulators for obsolete console games are a must as of this age, since most of them doesn't even have an extra copies anymore to sell.

I don't think emulators are bad. As long as you are playing really old games that developers don't produce or make money from any more. I only use emulators to play really old Pokémon games that are to expensive for me to buy.

I believe that emulators for older generation game systems like from then N64 and playstation generation to atari 2600 and older is okay to use an emulator for since some of the games that you can buy online (NES games) is outrageously expensive.  This is just my opinion and I can understand if anyone disagrees.

I dont think its bad.

In my opinion you dont "hurt" the franchise and companys. They produced the game(s) and console a long time ago so they arent affected anymore by those emulators.

Im using an emulator by myself. Playing Pokemon on the iphone is so bloody great!! ;)

Emulating games is okay as long as you OWN the games physically. IF you really can't find a copy to buy I guess you have no other coice, but emulationg games like Pokémon Black/White is not right and illegal. You should support game developers, and emulating games you can buy in every store is plain stealing.

Emulators are 100% okay. However, downloading illegal copies of games you can easily get legit copies of is not. There are ways to get the N64 games on your computer, you just have to look it up.

Good for old games bad for new games.

Shouldn't this be in General Discussion ?
