    Duckstation is far more stable than ePSXe. It just works right out of the box. Effects are also easy to apply, quicksaves/quickloads don't crash the game, and is generally less of a hassle and more feature-rich than ePSXe. I'm surprised it isn't known by more people!

    Open Source and already better looking than epsxe, the memory card editor is a useful tool, it has a game list. In contrast epsxe seems to not have been updated in years
