too stir the pot...except that said group has also decided games like Monaco GP and Pong (etc) are to be left out.
These games also fit the definitions as you laid out in your post.
Sure these are not processor based games, but the bottom line is that the circuitry can be emulated. I know the arguement is that this is not called emulation but simulation - this I do not understand, is the processor of all the other games not being simulated as well? Are you not running code that gives a mathematical solution to processor operation? Why would one also not call the code used to give a mathematical solution to a and/or/nor/etc gate the same?
