It's actually worse, there are threads all over reddit where people say they'll only play *perfect* emulators, and by perfect, they mean with widescreen hacks, upscaled rendering, new textures, no slowdown etc. so the complete opposite of perfect.

They then go on to call emulators *broken* if for some games you have to turn all that off and use the 100% accurate software renderer in order to not have fucked up graphics.

Which is fucking moronic, because in many cases a lot of the advanced tricks used on the systems simply aren't going to work with all that crap turned on unless you start reprogramming the game.

It means anybody trying to emulate the PSX, PS2, N64, XBOX, GameCube etc. generations have to meet the expectations of absolute fucking idiots if they're not going to have their emulator called 'broken'

At this point in time people doing newer generations than that don't really have the problem because most stuff was designed to run at 'HD' resolutions, widescreen etc. anyway, although I guess in 5-10 years the same morons will be demanding those all run at 4k with new texture packs etc. instead.

These people aren't actually interested in emulation, they're interested in ports using an emulation backend. Ports are done on a per-game basis, where details like this are added as part of the development process. There's a big difference.
