And since there were many who played with their games, it is not surprising that today we have different ways to enjoy their titles even though we no longer have the game consoles themselves. We can do it thanks to emulators like VisualBoyAdvance-M, which allows you to run any of them if we have the ROM files of their games (which you can find on many websites).
