    I agree, however, remember the rules discussing rom links and the like.

    I do enjoy playing roms of old Nintendo games I own that were quite frustrating; the save and load state commands are nice.

    There's nothing against the rules about discussing emulators.

    Yeah but, I am sure the topic will change course to those things we CAN'T talk about. It's bound to happen.

    BTW eyeballkid, did you know emulators were made by the government as a way to control us? Did you?

    I love my NES and GBA emulators.

    Better than having to play my game on the GBA, or dig out the old NES.

    (17 inch screen for GBA games FTW)

    Why should it? Emulators and other homebrew are perfectly legal.

    Emulators

    I'm glad that there are emulators for older systems. I can play NES, SNES, GBA, N64, Genesis/Mega Drive, Neo Geo, and Turbo Grafx-16/PC Engine on my pc without any hassles of taking out the classic systems.

    I used to have an N64 emulator.

    But now I have the Wii virtual console to play N64 games on it. *Hugs Wii*

    One of the best things about emulators is checking out crazy Japanese games.
