EmuParadise ROM Downloads No Longer Available to Avoid Legal Trouble

Blue skies

However, one of the most well-known websites in that landscape, EmuParadise, announced today that it's removing all ROMs from its platform due to legal fears. Those familiar with the scene, however, will know that this comment refers to recent lawsuits filed by Nintendo against two other ROM sites, LoveROMS and LoveRETRO. We run EmuParadise for the love of retro games and for you to be able to revisit those good times. Fans of the community that the website has created need not worry, as it seems that according to the post from the site founder, no lawsuits have been brought against the company.

Whether they were titles from the original Atari 2600, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or any other console, older games hold a special place in the hearts of many.

The removal of all ROMs from EmuParadise doesn't spell the end for the site entirely.

After 18 years of operation, EmuParadise is closing down, based on this report from Reddit. Unfortunately, it's not possible right now to do so in a way that makes everyone happy and keeps us out of trouble ...

For now, it looks as though emulators are still available for download, but ROMs and ISOs are completely gone.

It's unclear how EmuParadise will operate going forward, though MasJ says features like the site's emulator database-just the emulators themselves, not the games-and community forums will stay up as it begins its "new start". It appears that this has helped spark a new level of fear among such sites, as EmuParadise - one of the biggest ROM sites on the web - has made a decision to change its ways. But I believe it is the right thing for us at this point of time. "But you won't be able to get your games from here for now", as MasJ writes. We've had emails from soldiers at war saying that the only way they got through their days was to be lost in the retro games that they played from when they were children. Where we go with this is up to us and up to you. The writer of the blog post admits that where the website goes from here is partially up to the users, but they do have "several plans" regarding what happens next.
