Here’s a question to all Nintendo fanboys

Is Nintendo or the FBI, really going to lose their shit over you emulating Smash Bros. Brawl on a PC or a Series X?

The fact that Sony nearly took down their PS3 store makes the perfect argument for preservation/emulation.

Emulation isn't here to stay.

It was already here, and it is already staying.

Im happy with how emulation is progressing through the years.Ps3 emulation has come a long way with framerate, 3ds running better than it does on the handheld is always rewarding

If you look at the Biblical definitions of Theft, it always has to do with harming the economic value of a person or group. Stealing work is a thing, like refusing to pay an employee or not paying for an object or software that someone worked to produce in order to sell. HOWEVER, there is no such thing as "intellectual property", you cannot own ideas. And if a person or group is no longer selling a thing that they made before, then copying that thing is not harming the economic value of the person or group. You can't steal a game from a company that no longer sells that game. Because either way, the company is not making money. It's their own fault for failing to sell their work. At that point, it becomes public domain.

We’ve lost about 50% of all films ever made and 70-90% of all silent films ever made due to mishandling of the original film stock by the companies that produced them. video games are also at their very infancy and if no one works to preserve them like emulator coders do they’ll be lost to history just like all those silent films were, you can never trust the big corporations to do what’s right for the art that they helped create and if you can you need to take it into your own hands

Best reason to emulate:

Freedom to play freaking 3DS games on a large screen with a superior PS4/Xbox/whatever gamepad.

I remember somehow getting some very old games to run on my pc, it was annoying af to get Daggerfall to actually run properly on a windows 10 machine had to figure out fps and just general memory related stuff also had to go to another site to get an emulator that can properly run the game on a newer system with all the benefits that come with it, then the next day some unity version was made by a fan. Still I believe emulation is like preserving a fossil, with time degrading it without any action done, preservation can leave it intact and let us know of an era of gaming, rather than leaving the books to collect dust behind a shelf for 100 years. It isn't hurting sales if a game from 30 years ago is being emulated on newer devices, most likely it'll be forgotten about otherwise.

The fun thing is that when you look at the reasoning in those cases that solidified emulator legality is that the Judges actually classified emulators as legitimate competition to the original consoles. So stuff like "Yuzu runs Switch games better than the actual Switch" in legal terms just means that the Switch is not a competitive product.
