The emulation community plays a crucial role in preserving gaming's history.

If it wasn't for emulation and illegal ROMs, where would most of these old games be today? In the digital dustbin of history. Illegal ROMs have kept old games alive for decades, often with flourishing fanbases that would simply not exist if only strictly legal alternatives were available.

If it wasn't for emulation and illegal ROMs, Nintendo wouldn't have any old games to re-release. With only legal alternatives, most of these games would be simply dead.

For going on two decades now, it’s been trivially easy to go online and, within a few minutes, be playing the classic video games of yesteryear on your PC. That this occurs without the consent of the copyright holder seems to not matter at all to the millions—billions, probably—of people who have at one point or another touched an emulator.

Various game emulation sites are pulling down their software libraries, or ceasing to exist entirely, following a lawsuit filed by Nintendo against one of the largest of their kind. This is hardly tantamount to the erasure of all unauthorized copies of older video games from the internet, but it’s still gotten a lot of folks talking about the conundrum of ROMs—that is, the need to balance copyright protection with the preservation of history.
