I recognize that some of the larger games have been ported to pc, like the Final Fantasy series.
I'm asking more because I'd like to be able to play Brave Fencer Musashi, or Breath of Fire on my computer, instead of having to wire up my consoles to my monitor.
If this is already in the process of happening that's awesome, I'd just like to know in that case.
In the case that they aren't getting ported to pc en masse, I'd like to know why, and what can be done about it.

Thanks for the time

One company called Console Classics has been releasing emulated PS1 games legally on Steam (apparently they are licensed to do so by the copyright owners):

So it is technically possible, but in the past 16 years, Square Enix ported only one PS1 game to PC that did not previously exist for the latter, which is Final Fantasy IX. I think they prefer to bring a quality version that is optimized for PC rather than having an emulated version with little reprogramming.
