HOY!

Wait a moment.

I don't really KNOW the difference (if any) between the two but aren't
they both imitations?

For example:
= A PC cannot do what the Sony Playstation or the Nintendo can do.
However, with the help of a software it can emulate and perform both
the consoles. So it is imitating a console gaming platform.
= A Flight Simulator (or racing simulator, or whatever) tries to
imitate 'real life' phenomenon applicable when flying/driving.

Aren't both imitating?
