A look at 3DSEN
3Dsen is another NES emulator in a long line of NES emulators. This one comes with a unique twist though. The author of the emulator has profiles for each supported game to allow the game to be played with 3D effects patched into the game. This adds a layer of depth that needs to be seen to be believed. There's no new gameplay, everything controls just as it always has, but this makes those sprites pop and adds a whole new experience to the NES games we are familiar with. Below is a collection of screenshots.
There are two versions. The first standard version just requires your PC and displays everything on your monitor. There is also a VR version that lets you use a VR headset if you own one to give the games even more depth and perspective. This is a paid emulator, but I feel it's one of the few out there right now that's worth the cost of entry. It creates an entirely new experience. You can find a list of supported games at steamcommunity.com
. Some standouts include Contra, Mega Man 1 through 3, Super Mario 1 and 3, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Dragon Warrior, Final Fantasy, and Gradius. As of now there are over 80 NES games supported with a few more being added every so often. There's also an active community that makes unofficial expansions to support games not on the official list.
