MAME Review

Once upon a time, arcade machines were practically the entire video game industry. They were considered the pinnacle of cutting edge technology. Unfortunately, once computers and home consoles started evolving, there was no need to leave your house and walk all the way to the arcade to play games anymore, and games stopped being designed for them. If you're nostalgic, it's actually really hard to play them on modern systems too - you need a very specialized emulator like MAME to play them.

To install MAME, make sure to just run the executable and you're good to go.

The program's real purpose, as stated by the creators, is to document and preserve the games, and the fact that you can play them is "just a nice side effect". To their credit, it plays as well as it could without actual joysticks and levers.

The actual program runs from the command line, which means there's no interface whatsoever that you can use to access its functions. Instead, you have to enter the desired commands and consult the documentation in order to run and configure the games you want to play. It's not as hard as it sounds, but it's definitely not convenient. Fortunately, there are a ton of different wrappers out there that gives it a user interface, making it much easier to use the program.

All in all, if you want to play arcade games, then you should definitely give MAME a download. It's one of the only ways to play old arcade games nowadays.
