=== Emulators ===
An emulator is a program which serves to replicate the functions of another platform or system so as to allow applications and games to be run in environments they were not programmed for.  While emulators themselves are not games in a strict sense, they provide users with the ability to play games and therefore have been included in this article.
{{Note|1=For possibly more up to date selection of emulators, try checking the [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?O=0&K=&do_Search=Go&detail=1&L=0&C=5&SeB=nd&SB=n&SO=a&PP=25 AUR 'emulators' category]}}
{{Warning|Owning an emulator itself is not illegal, but downloading/sharing copyrighted ROMs and using emulator to run them without the copyright holder's permission is ILLEGAL. Arch Linux etc. is not responsible if you get in trouble.}}
