Seriously side-eyeing everyone trying to claim that a huge gaming company stealing emulators for their shitty microconsole while removing digital distribution options and taking down ROM sites is actually "progress" because it "proves they're worthwhile projects"

These platform holders steal the work of real archivists and programmers and then label THEM the thieves when said archivists are the only ones keeping these games around in an accessible form. Goddamn hypocrites.

These games should be freely and legally available through online and physical public libraries. Game preservation should not be a fucking criminal act, especially when the platform holders are going to actively take away these resources from people.
