    Benefits of running emulators on Wii vs the PC?

    do the emulators on wii have any added benefits over justing using emulators on the pc?

    is the biggest benefit the fact that you can play these emulators on your tv?

    I suppose if you want to think of it terms of one over benefiting the other, then that would be one reason.

    Most of us just like to have added features to our consoles, and allow ppl like our kids to be able to access them without getting onto our pc.

    Never really thought in terms of one being better or having more benefit, just something that is available to use, if you want to.

    Here is what to do: Install them to your pc and play some games. Then install some to the wii console and play some games.
    After your done, you can make an assessment of which has more benefit over the other. That is if you really want to.

    Most emulators are ports of the pc version, so they all have the same exact abilities (most of the time) however, PC emulators have a lot higher compatibility rate when it comes down to newer consoles.

    I personally like using the wii controller better than a keyboard. Then again, I never have been to much of a pc gamer.

    difference in the controls depending on which game would be my reason for choosing one or the other
    and of course which it played better on
