Run old-school console games on the Mac with OpenEmu

I'm 45, and I've been gaming on consoles since the Magnavox Odyssey. Many of the games I've played over the years represent a huge investment of time and a huge return of pleasure in playing, so I keep them. I keep them on shelves in my office, I keep them in bins in my basement. I don't get rid of them for the same reason I don't toss my old vinyl albums or CDs — in many cases, there's a real emotional attachment.

But this isn't about my hoarding tendencies. It's a good thing I've kept those old games around, because now I can play them again on my Mac. A powerful application provides the framework to do it easily, and it's absolutely free. It's called OpenEmu, and here's how to use it.

Mac gamers deserve better than half-assed iOS game ports

iOS game developers, please stop messing up your Mac conversions

Developers, please stop sticking your games on the Mac App Store just because you can. I'm tired of digging through games with control schemes that make them a chore instead of fun.
