I play it on my computer. Might refer to your technical definitions of PC gaming but it's a file on my computer that is a game that I play.

ROMs don't count.it's just dumped from the cartridge that was made for the system to be played ... So Emulation doesn't count as actual pc gaming?
well yeah it's often how i see as well but in a way i'm thinking is that with networks becoming more slowly available overtime for indie developers to jump under smaller budgets ,the rarity of some older titles like SMRPG are kind of lessened off in value since it would have been one of those games that been petitioned by it's fans for a port on the GBA until it's resurgence on the virtual console around 2008.
Now as for Abandonware or Free2play they probably wouldn't make any more money off it like they would have when it was on it's prime yet they still offer purchase of things that would been earned free based on how time you've experianced with such useless trinkets and accessories for your characters. Defunct companies and there former workers probably wouldn't have to worry so much about piracy since the licenses and rights would have not been bought of under a new name from years of being out of business and franchises that might have and little to moderate success by may have been forgotten by the time they were made.
