The World Masters Games are a multi-sporting occasion for senior sporting activities enthusiasts, with the minimal age for involvement depending upon the sporting activity in between 25 and 35 years.
With the PS2 emulator of PCSX2 you can obviously start any PS2 game — except Real World Golf. What has it with this cursed golf game?
Emulators allow you to play your old favorite games on a new hardware. The team of PCSX2 has made it the task of making PS2 games playable on current computers.
An old game does not want to play. As PCSX2 announces on Twitter, the team reaches at least the title screen, except Real World Golf with all tested plays. The reason is: The Golf Game requires special controller emulation.

But it does not mean that Real World Golf is not responding to PCs at all. On the official site of PCSX2 is the game as the only one in the intro phase.
Specifically, it says: The game shows 2D logos or a video, but does not reach the main menu. This can be a screen or 20, but it does not show much. Thus, it works, but not at the same time. (Source: PCSX2)
Almost 98 percent of the tested PS2 games work, on the other hand, good enough, so they are playable. Only a small part of the games is not yet at this stage.
What is Real World Golf?
Real World Golf appeared in 2005 for the PlayStation 2 and PC, later for the Xbox, and needed the Amtrak controller. Amtrak can capture — as the name suggest motions to enable in the case of Real World Golf realistic golfing in their own four walls. There was a lot of technical equipment and a small golf club included in the box.
Real World Golf was so an unripe version of Wii Sports Golf. The Amtrak controller is probably also the reason why the emulator of PCSX2 comes around at the Golf Game.
Why PS2 emulators become more important
The project of PCSX2 began 20 years ago and has grown amazingly surprisingly. Today are nearly 2,700 PS2 games playable with the emulator.
PS2 s emulators are becoming increasingly important because the popular console has not been produced since 2012. With over 150 million units sold, the PlayStation 2 is considered the best-selling game console worldwide.
