I tried asking this yesterday: How is it possible that video game console emulators perpetually suck?
Actually, I asked it earlier in the day, but it was mysteriously "memoryholed", as if this had been the "Arqade" or "History" category of Stack Exchange. 404 Not Found. Baffling. That's why I re-posted it. And then it got downvoted into oblivion, which is equally baffling.
Has this category also been taken over by the same toxic people who make it impossible to even attempt to ask any question in those aforementioned categories? Why would they otherwise downvote such a question?
Have you actually tried the emulators yourself? If you had, you wouldn't be able to do anything but agree with me. It's impossible. Unless you have never played a real Nintendo 64 and actually think that Mario Kart 64 is supposed to look like it does in the emulators.
So how is it "opinion-based"? I genuinely want to know how this situation can be, so many years after they first started releasing N64 emulators. I remember a friend running Ocarina of Time completely butchered in an emulator on his 450 MHz Pentium II, in 1999. I could never have imagined that this would be the same 21 years later. But it is. This, objectively, means that the emulators suck. It's not an opinion and was not asking for opinions either. I just want to know why it is. How can it be so difficult to emulate them properly? Why do they not even seem to try, since none of them even offer the N64's native resolution as a video mode?
It's incredibly insulting when I spend so much time and effort to compose a perfectly written question and then it's just deleted, "closed" and/or downvoted for seemingly no reason. I even mentioned that I couldn't do better myself, so no reasonable person could even take it as an "insult", even if they were the emulation authors.
