    With the emulators on this site you can emulate on your PC an other system. With ScummVM you play PC games on your PC. I think it is an interpreter, not an emulator.

    alcoatjez is correct. ScummVM is an open source implementation of the SCUMM engine, not an emulator.

    It's like Microsoft DOS and FreeDOS.

    I don't think it would qualify as an emulator...

    I can play Doom and Quake on my PSP with it. I think it qualifies as an emulator.
