Nintendo Emulator recommendations?

10 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone is currently running any Nintendo emulators for the PC/Mac? I've got the itch for some classic NES games and did a little research into emulators. With so many to choose from I was wondering if anyone has some recommendations? Come on children of the 80's....I know your out there! laugh

Cheers.

I used to run nesticle on my pc about eight years ago when I got the Zelda itch- Duck Hunting isn't nearly as fun without that toy gun though...

It seemed to be about the same quality as the real thing- I don't know if there is much room for improvement on those games for an 8-bit system

same here nesticle rocks! nothing better than going back and playing contra and seeing how many times you can beat the game over and over with out dieing smile

I have all the NES, SNES and GENISIS games on my PC. Not all of them converted over very well but a majority are just like the real thing except playing on a keyboard.

Check out some of the online auction or listing sites.

Why not buy the real deal?

Thanks guys. I think I'll give NESticle a whirl. I've got a Nintendo at home that is in great shape....however some of the prices they are offering for the classics are absurd. I've been looking at the USB converter's for the NES controller's which seem to work pretty well for emulators. Ideally I'm going to load the emulator on a laptop and bring it in the boat. Nothing like playing a little Excite Bike waiting for the clicker to go off! laugh

    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY

    • Great to see this in Minnesota. Trout has been on my bucket list and will happen this year. The mix of largies and smalls really works for this show and plays into the guys heads. I was pulling for Hack. He's become one of my favorites. I think these guys are gaining a new appreciation for MN.  Except maybe the Lane Bros.

    •   Wanderer, you better scaddle on out of these parts before your soul gets taken and your brain gets fried too!
    •   Yeah, you better stick with Bob's girl above old timer. She wouldn't swallow what your selling either!
