I'm all about being as authentic as possible. I'd much, much rather have an authentic cartridge and play that over anything that's a reproduction or some alternative way to play the game on the system.

But in an age where the Atari VCS (2600) is turning 40 years old next month, some of these games are VERY hard to find. And, if you can find them (Ex: eBay), expect to pay an absurd amount of money. There are many games on the market that are worth more than double (or triple, or more) the cost of an everdrive that would allow you to play every single game for that console.

I'd much, much rather have the original cartridge and play it as it was intended. But it reaches a point where playing a game authentically isn't worth the cost when it's dead simple to play it by other means.
