I will play games emulated...

The only exception is Pokemon... I don't really see the point if I can't battle or trade with other people...

I use emulators because you can do a lot more than you can on the real thing

I use real hand held games/consoles mostly because they don't break a lot and there easier to work with

I play the GBA and very rarely the GBC games on emulators. But only the games I own (Crystal, Ruby, FireRed and Emerald). I sometimes play on PC, but I just love playing them on my phone.

I like the enhanced screen size when using emulators, plus hacks are great. but that hasn't prevented me from buying the hard copies of games still

I play on my computer but primarily on my ipad; There's a really cool thing where you can connect your wiimote to control GB/GBC emulators on it, it's awesome!!

I use VBA. I have all the actual games and stuff, but playing on that tiny screen really hurts my eyes and neck. Plus, yeah, speed button and built in cheats. The only thing that makes me grumpy is I just beat the elite four on fire red with VBA, and I can't get any futher than that. :( It plays the credits and sends me to the main menu. Sigh.

I own the tech to play the old games but choose not to. Let's see....no power problems, save whenever you want (I abuse this so much!) built in cheat device, speed button, can play hacks.....my only rule is that I refuse to download "New" games (I wait until they become a little more forgoten, perhaps obsolete)

I pretty much use emulators for most Nintendo games nowadays, I also download the ROMs of the web, 'cause I don't feel like buying them... and I'm not really the sort of person who supports proprietary software much. xD I mainly download the ROMs, research them and contribute to the ROM hacking community.

Though... since there isn't any emulator for 3DS yet, I usually buy them in order to play them, as much as I don't support proprietary software much. xD

I emulate video games to a certain degree. I won't emulate anything past 16-bits as it lags too much for my tastes.

I emulate games only if I can't play them on a console. I have a flashcard for the DS that can play GBA games, emulators on my phone (which I feel are like playing on a handheld console anyway), and a Wii that'll play downloaded ISOs of Wii and Gamecube games, so I don't really need emulators nowadays.
