Technically, DOS is just another OS that needs to be emulated to make it run. Well, Surely GOG could team up with Znes producers, PsxE, VBA, ect and try and get some console games on GOG. Set them up in such a way that it comes with an inbuilt emulator that runs when you click .exe like has been done with DOSbox, afterall, it is just an emulator. Only downside would be, you could only really add old games, but hey. Surely companies like square enix would love to make money from the huge scene of people who emulate their old content like final fantasy VI.

Not sure if this wish is bound to become a reality or not, but if this does happen on GOG, I would be very grateful. There are tons of PS1 and PS2 games that should be on here for future generations to see. Oh yeah, games from the NES, SNES, Genesis, and many more would be nice as well. The history of gaming matters

Add this in cooperation with the companies that made the SNES / N64...ect games. They should get a cut to give us the opportunity to play those games on PC legally.

GOG isn't bringing all of the good ol' PC games of the past allegedly because of "copyright issues"...and you want CONSOLE games being sold? LMAO Sorry but this is just wishful (no pun intended) thinking and nothing else. There's ZERO chances of GOG ever selling (or even hosting) ROMs. Not even the really really old ones. And the worst thing is that THIS is getting 10000+ votes while super useful wishes can't even reach 1000. GOG's Community Wishlist is as useless and abuse-prone as the Forums' Rep System. SMH

I can see some console games actually coming to GOG, it would be like super cool to get some NES, SNES and N64 games but chances of Nintendo allowing it are very slim. I would still like to see some older console titles on GOG though.

GOG is already the best Steam alternative. Add this feature and GOG becomes the best Wii shop replacement. This could be one of the best things to happen for game preservation since emulation itself.

On Steam, there is a collection of Megadrive games. Basically you get the emulator and the roms. It’s a pity I had to open an account on Steam to just get it. I’d have loved to buy it on GOG. <br /> For us, players, it’s really nice that such initiative exist as it provides us with a legal way to get DRM free roms. <br /> I’ve also bought the Neo Geo 25th classics also in order to legally obtain DRM free roms and BIOS. <br /> DosBOX is the same story. Thanks to the GOG releases, we have a legal way to obtain roms for games like Aladdin, Lion King, Bio Menace, ... <br /> So definitely, if similar collections are available and allow us to legally get DRM free roms and BIOS that can work in an emulator, I’d snap-buy these.

I may have commented years ago here that it may not quite be impossible, but still difficult like many are saying due to the licensing concerning not just the games but emulation. After seeing what happened recently with EmuParadise, however, I'm feeling strongly that, regardless of how we spread old console games in particular, there's a pressing need for video game preservation, and it seems something like 90% of old console games risk being lost forever. Emulation via ROM and ISO images is one of the most efficient ways of sharing and preserving video game history and ensuring people can play all of those obscure games they've loved for ages. The whole mini-console craze is nice and all, and I'm aware some companies have released game compilations (the Playstation 2 has a number of great ones) and there have been "virtual consoles" for a while now, but I still feel like that's not good enough considering they still generally feature the most popular games everyone and their umpteenth cousin already has, and the film industry has little problem continually producing media for obscure films only two people bother watching. I understand why major companies like Nintendo don't bother to that extent, but it would be nice to see a Mill Creek-style company picking up dead licenses and going around to major companies offering to publish what they don't want and pumping out a variety of things to fill that void. Even if that company wasn't GOG, either way, I just felt the need to put that out there to get minds running on the issue.

THIS sounds like a perfect fit, and would satiate ROM developers that own the rights to ANCIENT video arcade machines. <br /> <br /> I would LOVE to see a MAME with ancient roms purchasable for a few bits. <br /> <br /> GoG could create an instant market, with people spending a small fortune paying 50 cents for hundreds of old roms, and a few dollars for classics like Pac-man, Galaga and Donkey Kong.

In a way im against this idea as i have bought games from here before that were labeled as "Windows/Linux/Mac" & only to find that they run on DosBox which for some people runs like frozen coleslaw and then ends up a waste of money & a big aggravation. <br /> <br /> maybe if there were more PC ports of the classic games then i would agree (or even Indie remakes) or if they were 'roms' actually worth money (and not ones that are now legally free to obtain) then yeah im all for it (as-long as GOG label things correctly and NOT as "Windows/Mac/Linux" when its a damn emulated game).

This is an excellent idea; it reduces the demonisation of emulation by supporting the directors directly, and shows companies the passion and interest in older games!

As for why people would buy the ROMS when they could download them for free? Well, I could download any game on GOG for free, many in GOG's own installers. If you give people the opportunity to do something legally... some (not all) will actually put down money and pay for something they really enjoy.

Was going to add a Game wish of "All NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, PS1, PS2, and Genesis games"... but this works too. The really should only sell the ROMS... setting the emulator up tends to be more of a user preference of what said user values most.

@kustridaren: depends on the emulator, and it's not like the spec requirements are unknown or cannot be found out. At worst they can simply test on their testbed platforms and use those results. <br /> <br /> However, this is more likely a licensing issue of the games themselves. For example you can emulate Binlendo (cough) games, but obviously they will never license them considering they often sell re-releases of their older games. It's less of a technical problem (I mean, the op itself specifically mentions several working emulators) and more of a legal one.

For the Commodore-family, how about reaching out to Cloanto who owns C64 Forever and Amiga Forever? They already includes a lot of licensed games in their emulator package. Magnussoft with their C64/Amiga Classix are another alternative. Would love to have some Speedball , Turrican, Superfrog or International Karate + on sale here.

As far as I understand it shouldn't be impossible. Get into talks with publishers like Konami, Capcom, Sega, Square Enix, etc., to sell their old console games on GOG, then distribute them inside emulation wrappers. Just make sure there's no Nintendo-owned code in the emulator or something. Why would people who download ROMs for free buy these? For the same reason people who might download old PC games for free buy GOG games -- because they'd come with extra goodies like the original manuals, soundtracks, artwork, and so-on. <br /> <br /> Of course NES or SNES games would have to be third party only. I think the biggest challenge would just be getting accurate emulation. I imagine this wouldn't really happen for any games beyond the 16-bit era though. <br /> <br /> It would be easiest to talk with SEGA and SNK since they're no longer interested in protecting their old walled gardens. Both have emulated games in the past. The only change for SEGA is it would be selling those Genesis ROMs without DRM. SNK already sells many of its games DRM-free on Humble, and they're literally just ROMs wrapped in DotEmu's emulator. Some even come with soundtracks. It's pretty much identical to how GOG games are sold and is probably how console classics would be sold on GOG. <br /> <br /> Another interesting avenue might be arcade games, particularly ones from developers who made their own arcade boards and can emulate them (again, SNK).

Alright, so people are saying that console games cannot be put on <a href="http://GOG.com" class="light_un" target="_blank">GOG.com</a> because of various legal reasons related to emulation. That's not really true. <br /> <br /> Most emulators, especially for older consoles, do not require any ROMs. For instance, the NES (which had quite a few unlicensed games you might get permission to release on GOG - I don't know, the old CodeMasters NES games could work here?), SNES, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, GameBoy, GameBoy Color and many other consoles of that era do not require ROMs. Other systems, such as the GBA and PS1, do benefit greatly from ROMs, but emulation is good enough for many titles to not require them. This means that no intellectual property of the console manufacturer is distributed and that the emulator can be distributed with or without their permission. <br /> <br /> The bigger problem, however, is the contracts that those game developers have with Nintendo or Sega which might forbid such practices, or their relationships with the two which might make such practices unwelcome. This is why I mentioned the idea of contacting the creators of previously unlicensed games for the platforms, or homebrew developers, or companies which no longer create games but might be interested in profiting from their old intellectual property. The ones which are still involved with the big companies usually release their games through them anyway, but what about the little, forgotten developers of the era? They might be willing to join such a project. <br /> <br /> (Besides, DOSBox is also an "emulator" of sorts, and not a very accurate one at that - PCem is much more accurate - and nobody seems to complain about it)

I didn't vote for it, but I like the idea of distributing just the ROM's. I would like to legitimately buy the original ROM files without extracting them from cartridges myself. I don't think GOG should be in the business of handling the emulator itself unless it did so in a 'recommended tools' section or something separate from the game. Even then, that's a lot of duplicate maintenance for GOG to ensure up to date versions of emulators that should really be left to the emulator developers or the internet archive. The legality surrounding console emulators in the first place is sketchy at best. Simply a for-pay original ROM repository I'm in support of though. As others have commented, verifying emulation correctness is not on GOG, if an emulator goes south or development stalls, they could be in hot water. Maybe offer a recommendation for an emulator, but claim you only offer legit official ROM files. I'm pretty sure the SOP for Nintendo and Sega is to resell only the most popular old games on new console for $60 anyway. I Would love an alternative for the lesser known games that didn't have console obsolescence built in.

would be cool, but unfortunately i suspect it would put GOG in the position of distributing the console emulators, none of which i believe are currently actually acknowledged as legit by the original console manufacturer. <br /> <br /> Sony, Nintendo, etc. would no doubt like to keep games for their old platforms to their own newer platforms.

That would be highly unlikely. You can't sell a game unless you can be 100% certain that it'll work the way it was programmed. Unfortunately, console emulation is much more difficult than one may think. Even old consoles have hardware features that simply don't exist on a modern PC and has to be emulated via software. While technically feasible, a software implementation of a hardware feature will always run much slower than it should. At some point you need to compromise between performance and accuracy. If the feature is too accurate, the game might slow down at inappropriate times. If it's too optimized, it might cause glitches in games that make use of a very specific quirk that simply isn't present in the "fast" code. Not to mention when a dev has optimized his game to fully utilize features, bugs, and even the whims of hardware-internal timings; a slight change can break a game beyond repair. Remember these old games that suddenly ran way too fast to be playable, if the hardware was too powerful? Yeah, good times, good times. GoG would either sink a ton of resources to develop, test, debug, optimize, and test their emulators again, or they'd invest less money into it in exchange for giving those games away for free. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

I wouldn't vote for PSX, N64, Dreamcast... emulation though, as these always have graphical glitches going on

A lot of good old console games out there that would be nice to have here. I wouldn't mind some Bonk and other TurboGrafx-16 stuff...as well as Sega, Nintendo, Atari, Playstation games and so on.

+1 for this. SEGA has a large collection of classic titles available on Steam through a proprietary SEGA emulator. Wouldn't be any more work than establishing a licensing contract to get these available on GOG, DRM-free.

Would be nice..and also..no more faulty emulators...i already have some of those....and yes..even though old in some cases (Nintendo, MSX, Sega, there's some cool games on those..i just wish there was a way to hook up a really old 2 button handheld joystick..)

Makes me recall how Bleem (I think it was), a Playstation emulator got purchased (officially licensed or something along those lines). Was good except the regular updating stopped after it became 'official'. <br /> <br /> Still, I'm surprised that game producers don't re-release old games even if they state that they're no longer supported. I still play a bunch of old stuff (even fire up my consoles) because some of the old games have better gameplay than newer ones.

If you're mentioning how GOG uses DOSbox to run some Good Old Games, you might as well mention that GOG uses <a href="http://ScummVM.org" class="light_un" target="_blank">ScummVM.org</a> to run the games that use it (eg The Dig). It's strange you say "Only downside would be, you could only really add old games" when GOG is all about Old Games!

SE makes remakes? <br /> <br /> Sure, they do, but have you ever played one? <br /> <br /> Terrible controls, bugginess to make Ubisoft blush, and DRM that makes Origin and UPlay seem like an epic win by comparison. <br /> <br /> Actually, I take that back, SE is so bad with their DRM that I'd consider buying a new Rockstar game before I re-bought a Final Fantasy/Dragon Quest title.

This may be a good idea but a bit ambitious given the legal questions around ROMs / Emulation in the first place and hosting the actual game ROMs.

The emulators themselves tend to be legal. <br /> The games to run on them tend not to. <br /> Some of them (Pcsx2) require BIOS to work, which must be ripped from a console, and are also not legal. <br /> <br /> With GOG handling the licensing and bundling and such, the second two problems could go away, at least for the end user.

SE makes so many re-releases of FF that emulating them illegally is hardly an excuse.

I don't think that this is impossible, but I think some might disagree with this. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think one of the reasons why console games using emulators may not be a good idea is because of the different quality that the game might show compared to the game itself when being played by a console. Sometimes, the game's quality would drop to 480p from 720p. But yeah, I don't know much about this kind of stuff.

Yes, I think GOG should have all Good Old Games. I've used Fusion364 emulator to play my old Sega MegaDrive (Genesis) and MegaCD games. It works perfectly, no issues.

Before we ask GOG to do this can we have them do something on a similar note but in keeping with PC games? I would like to suggest everyone here first ask GOG to make as many PC98(the big Japanese PC platform back in the day) available here and compatible with Windows PC. I would love the original version of Xanadu by Nihon Falcom and many other related games to be available on here.

I am aware of the many difficulties and challenges, and I still think this is a good idea. For a few old console games at least. <br /> For I have never (what some commenters have called lazy) bothered to collect my old (abandonware) games, install the emu, fiddle with various settings, tread through crashes and trial & error in hopes of playing an old video game. Now if GOG offered a bug-free version to play on my computer today I would purchase it. <br /> <br /> So yeah I could trouble myself with the time consuming hassles of playing Sega or super Nintendo emu on my PC and each year I still have not done it.

GOG has gotten some emulated Amiga games and stuff, so this isn't impossible, there would probably a lot of redtape and technical difficulties to deal with though.
