So, after all the hullabaloo of next-generation console launches, arguments about 1080p, and massive online outages, it’s time to get on with the important stuff like murdering zombies in Dead Rising 3, or Helghast in Killzone: Shadow Fall, right? Maybe it’s time for some browsing of menus using your voice, or sharing videos of you being a tool in COD: Ghosts? Right? Well for many, it might not be time to enter the future just yet. Some can’t afford to make the jump into the land of ultra-shiny graphics and bountiful micro transactions. Some didn’t order a console in time. Some just don’t see the point just yet.

With plenty of games and ways to emulate the latest consoles, there’s no need to rush out or start harvesting your vital organs to upgrade. Here are just some of the ways that you can have a great gaming experience without going next-gen.
