I just started playing these and they are awesome. Its a blast from the past. I stopped playing video games about 5 years ago, the new games are complicated and I'm too old. Mario Kart never gets old though. Anyone else use emulators to play old school games on their computer?

Dontate to my favorite charity!
I have an xbox with a hard drive with all of the NES and a lot of SNES games. It also has all of the Atari games and some sega, dreamcast, and a few others. I honestly will never be able to play every game I have.

I got a snes emulator on my laptop AND I LOVE IT! Never had a console until the PS2 came out so its great playing these old RPGs!
Anyone know if you can do this on a PS3?
Yea, I have that for dream cast too (actually, it was THE reason I bought one!) but then I broked it. Ah well it was fun while it lasted!
Yea I love emulators great for when your at work. They even have PSone emulators. They don't work as well as the others but more then good enough.
I think I saw something about this on a PS3 forum... Im fairly certain that you can
This sounds pretty cool. Are these just programs that you install in computers? Can someone post links on where to buy these?

Hell no. I still play my actual SNES. My friend Sarah comes over, we get drunk, and play Super Mario All Stars.

only reason I didn't sell my PS2 when I got my ps3 was for the emulators
I have like five disks
NES disk with an emulator and 500 games
SNES disk with emu and probably 50 games
Sega Genesis emu with 100 games
MAME disk with 1000 games
and one other one i can't find right now
Through PS3 its possible with BD-J.... here's a link
note that this does not discuss how to get roms, and the emulator is legal as the patent on the 8 bit nintendo is long expired
For an emulator, try emulator-zone.com.
And for the games search for NES or SNES and roms. Some of the more successful franchises (like Zelda) you won't find roms for because the publishers threaten to sue anyone who allows access to them.
Technically, roms aren't illegal, as long as you have the original game--sorta making a copy of a record or tape you already owned (wow, I'm dating myself there...)
Also, I've see large groups of roms on some of the filesharing sites like torrentz.com

Ha, emulators are amazing. I use my wired XBOX 360 controller to play n64 games with a controller on my laptop, and I can also play PSOne games on my PSP. Portable Resident Evil and Final Fantasy 7!

Been in the emulation scene since '99ish.
www.zophar.net for all emulation-related things.
Google for ROM sites... unless we're allowed to link the good ones here.. the torrents of them are also good.
