Is it just me or is something lacking in these Atari Classic Games HTML5 remakes?

Yes, unique hardware to play them on with unique controllers.

Atari was the Wii of it's day, I loved my Grandma's Pong machine on up to the Jaguar, and my highly upgraded 8-bit computers. Atari is part of my heart and soul, and nothing would please me more than to see the company who owns the name to release, or allow someone else to develop and release some sort of portable hardware that is also capable of plugging into a television. Port or emulate a ton of Atari classics on it and include them as part of the package ala Atari Forever, but then keep the device open so that programmers could code their own unique creations for it. That I feel would be more in line with the Atari spirit. Heck I'd still love to see hardware based upon the 7800 or Atari XL/XE, but with more RAM, improved video ala VBXE, and so forth released upon the market as an open machine for coders to tinker with. Some day I think nerdism will be main stream enough for products like this to catch on. A day when people are tired of watching TV or playing games, and want to actually create them again...

...to dream.

Anyhow, I hate HTML5 games. I hate the internet, burn burn burn! ;)

I tried it, and the controls lag and seems slow, like it was made to be slow.
Missile Command was boring, one missile at a time, come on...

Anyway, some people coded Asteroids emulator on Atari 800 (works on my Atari 130XE) and it works pretty good. They say it uses original Asteroids ROM.

WOW, Asteroids emulated on the XE, amazing!

I have heard that Apple II emulation is amazing on it as well, but have not gotten around to playing with any of the emulators yet.
