Four Types of Emulation

Emulators are meaty programs that will make your computer pretend to be another. Some are easy to get going, others will likely have you scratching your head. Once you do get to grips with things, using a modern PC can open up all manner of ways to play, some of which were never originally possible.

The aim of the ATE Arcade is to bring the arcade experience home to those who have previously been shut out due to its inaccessibility.

Put in the context of these games impossible to play in their original format for some disabled gamers and I would hope that attitudes would be more relaxed.
