But generally, emulating consoles like the N64 and later are a huge hurdle, and just because you've emulated it on pc doesn't make it possible on other platforms, it takes alot of work and it'll almost never be perfect.

Outside of that, thanks for the compliment.
Since I don't really know myself, how come we've come so far being able to emulate consoles on PC? Obviously PC's are stronger and can handle more, but any technical reason?

I'd imagine you'd have a lot more freedom with a PC opposed to a console or handheld. Though I'm not sure of the technical reasons.
Oich Oich.

Its because pcs are alot easier to design software for than consoles, especially on consoles with really abnormal and complicated hardware. Emulation on consoles like the n64 still isn't perfect on PC though
I was here once, now I'm not.

I'm pretty sure he meant homebrew, not an official emulator. That would be rather stupid.
