So let me get this straight, what you're basically saying is, if you play on an emulator, you can't compete, and if you want to, go out & buy the consoles & games yourself. Uh, sorry but hey, news flash buddy, not all of us have the time or the money to go out & track down all these different games & consoles just to compete on this site. I don't think any of us want to either, I mean is it honestly worth it to invest hundreds of dollars on consoles & games and not get a return on your investment? All you get in return is the ability to compete.
Sorry buddy, but if that's what TSC comes to on this, then I'm leaving, cuz there's no way in hell I'm gonna drag my ass out the door to track down cartridges of the original Genesis Sonic games & a SEGA Genesis. It's not worth the time or the money to get all that just to compete on something that won't matter in the long run. I'm pretty sure I don't stand alone when I say this.
