  • Gameboy Emulators

    A Gameboy emulator was the first emulator that I ran that proved to me that console unit emulation on a computer was most definatly possible. And what better unit then the Gameboy unit! It's hardware is not too difficult to comprehand and master, which is reflected in the Gameboy emulators, for their emulation of the unit is at near perfection. Personally, if the emulators for the gameboy unit did not run as well as the do, I would never of bothered with Gameboy emulators, because of the grey-LCD output. Never the less, if your a Gameboy fan, new or old, I recommend giving these gameboy emulators a shot. With their accurate emulation and seemless operation, they're definatly worth bothering with!
