Why would you emulate instead of playing the real games? The real hardware is so much better, not to mention it's literally how the games were meant to be played. It's not some approximation, it's the real deal.

No, because PS4 controller is basically the SNES controller, which is basically the NES controller with 2 extra buttons (which you don't even use). It's not as lame as playing with a keyboard, which is CLEARLY not what the developers intended.

Ever haunted by a game you cannot remember the name of and cannot seem to find?

For me, it was a myst clone that came with some 10- or 20-pack of games from a scholastic book fair catalog (I got it around 2001-2003). In the game, you break into a facility and go thru a library, like pic related, and get into a time machine. From there, you could either go to medieval or egyptian times and solve "educational" puzzles.

Hey /vr/os, I'm looking for a specific and obscure PC game from the nineties.

The game had you operate two sticks (like Pong but single player) to guide metal marbles around the screen. The sticks were sort of magic wands. There were stone and wood blocks to break, but your aim was to break all the special "quiz" type blocks that looked different from level to level. One level had hearts. When you hit a special block with one of your marbles, a mathematic quiz would pop onto the screen. You were given 4 answer options that would float towards the edges of the screen in small bubbles, and you had to hit the correct one with either of your sticks. The goal of each level was to answer all the questions correctly.
There were hazards. Some blocks released enemies (for example knights) towards your sticks, and you had to move out of the way, or you lost a life. There were also effect blocks on the screen that could make your marbles go much faster for some time.
You could have multiple marbles on screen, but only losing the last one (missing it, again like Pong) made you lose a life. The game screen looked like stone or parchment, and had a fairytale book -like visual style.
The game had a fantasy setting. From what I can remember, there was an evil wizard antagonist (looked kinda like Yen Sid from Disney) and the protagonists were two young mages/elves, red and blue - hence the red and blue magic wands you controlled.
I'm from Finland and I'm pretty sure this game was dubbed in Finnish. If I remember correctly, this game was called "MATEMAAGIKUS" which obviously is a play on word mathematic, spelled more how you would spell it in Finnish. Perhaps this game was made in Scandinavia, Sweden or Denmark for example?
I can find absolutely nothing about this game in the internet. Any info would be appreciated.

Because at the time releasing a game with too many new characters would lead to players feeling overwhelmed, ten is already a lot, especially for someone completely new to SF. With games especially in the arcade you need to balance the barrier of entry with the complexity of the game. SF's philosophy is basically having 'generations' where 3 came out with many new players in mind and they were expected to follow the series from there.

When that game was released no one would have given a single fuck if you used a guide to progress through the game. The bias against guides is something that about in the last 20 years.
