Hey, I know it sounds hipster but I want to play Doom or some of my Nintendo games from the 90s so bad sometimes. Do you know how can I do it on my laptop? (Toshiba Satellite L300, Windows Vista)
DOSBox, or Steam. The old games run fine when you buy and launch them from Steam. Doom, Wolfenstein, Quake, Heretic, etc. As for Nintendo, that's a legal grey area involving emulators that might not be ok to discuss here, not sure.
That's why I say it's a grey area. People can sell emulators fine, that's legal, it's just the ROMs thing that gets folks in trouble. But yeah for DOOM and the like, just pick them up cheap on Steam, they'll run with no probs.
