Sheesh, what's with the harsh reaction?Originally Posted by Clarke
The original message from ToddH mentioned he wanted to see authentic emulated arcade game for the virtual console. Someone else said that there are already a few. I responded by saying those are not the actual arcade versions but NES ports (some better than others).
As far as paying $5 goes, if both the NES version and arcade version were available, I would be more likely to buy the arcade version if I were to buy one at all.
As far as Galaga differences go, they are minor. I'm actually pretty impressed by the NES port, it's probably the closest you could get given the hardware. But there are some very slight differences in graphics, colors, and movements. A couple of the sound effects are not quite exact. Also the attract screen is the most notable difference, although since that's not really part of the gameplay itself, I don't mind. But my point was that it's not the authentic arcade version, but I wasn't complaining about it.
