    You can go on Kazaa and find all of this kind of stuff. Most have packed up versions w/ a few emulators and hundreds of roms. You can go all the way back to atari and arcade games. Just look up emulators or the system name and plenty should pop up. But remember you should only download games you already bought....or something.
    :D

    As a general rule, it is usually illegal to use emulators for a system that is still being sold new in stores, or games are still being manufactured.
    Not 100% correct, but a good rule of thumb.

    I used to be into Roms and Emulators back in the olden days. I couldnt afford a N64, so I tried out the emulators. But back then they were still in alpha stages and I'm pretty sure not even now do they work 100%.
    Have a look at the NeoGeo emulators, they are really fun for playing Metal Gear Solid. And for a bit more of a classic time, get a copy of MAME, it allows you to play games from dozens of different arcade machines.

    i have never really had any problems with emulators. I recently downloaded all my old systems and all my games and they all work great....N64, nintendo, and snes. I can post the program names if you like but I know these are good working copies...I have enjoyed them myself.

    This is a great site. I am just sick and tired of the other sites that don't help you with computer problems all they just say are some wrong answers. I have a question I did a search for N64 games and PS even though they are buggy can you please tell me where to get them.

    Just a tip-scan emulators for viruses before using them, they are one of the types of programs that commonly carry trojans.

    HUDE Gameboy Advance Rom site. I would recommend going there. However,I would download the roms like at 12:00 at mig night since their servers have space. They have over 600 roms and counting! They also hae GBA emulators there and some GBX (Gameboy,Gameboy Color) games.

    Good Luck.
