Most PC users out there have spent their childhood in the time when computers only started to become popular, so the only video games were the pixelated Nintendo 64 titles. Those who wish to relive those memories, can easily do it using Project64, a handy Windows application specifically created to emulate Nintendo64 ROMs stored on the hard-disk.
Although the application is not exactly new, it still works great. A very simple and fast installer process, simple interface but excellent functionality. However, it needs to be mentioned that in order to enjoy its full functionality, users first need to search the web for some downloadable ROMs that need to be loaded within Project64.
Once the appropriate ROMs have been located, users can start playing their favorite games in window mode or full-screen, depending on the type of experience they are after.
Regardless of the mode they select, they still need a controller and if they have several ones, they can even enjoy multi-player games. For each controller, a profile can be created, so that settings do not need to be adjusted every time a new game is started.
The graphic and the audio options can also be customized depending on the preferences of the users, and they can modify the video resolution and brightness, and the audio volume.
To conclude, Project64 can prove to revive some great memories for the nostalgic users, especially if they cannot afford to buy the latest game devices or platforms. It works fast, it comes with a basic yet very efficient interface and, even more importantly, it is free. Users do not need a super computer in order to run it, so whenever they want to relax, this is a good option.
