A shift has taken place in the world of video games that has transitioned some consumers from preferring the latest updates, to coveting the games of the past, so the 'OpenEmu' game emulator is designed to keep both sides happy. Offering an open source means of playing games from consoles of the past (think NES, Playstation, Nintendo 64 and more), the 'OpenEmu' game emulator currently supports 16 different consoles.

While other game simulators require users to use their keyboard as the controller, 'OpenEmu' game emulator enables the use of an external peripheral controller. Simply adjust the settings in the control panel to set different maneuvers with any controller and it's ready to allow retro gaming functionality with a realistic analog experience.
