They all work great, and you can't tell the difference between this or using an original cartridge. FYI, the N64 also has a NES emulator, and the Genesis has a Sega Master emulator.

A flash card for Turbographx-16 was just released, and there's a mod for 3DO coming soon, which means Saturn, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, etc will be coming too!

Here's a pic of the 3DO kit. It runs off of a laptop hard drive. No more discs/lasers/moving parts, extending the life of the console considerably.

VERY cool. This has me rethinking some things now. That's great that the N64 version has an NES emulator. Does the SNES version have that as well? I've got a Mini SNES that I would be more than happy to feature in my home theater, especially if I could score one of these new Everdrive devices. Heck, even the PowerPak seems pretty sweet. I could see myself busting out one of my top-loader NES systems (I have a few of them a couple of them have been modified for A/V out). These carts are friggin' expensive, though that's for sure.

I've got one of these types of things for my DSi XL that emulates NES games and it works very well. It's supposed to SNES, but frankly it kind of sucks for SNES games.

No. Apparently, the SNES isn't powerful enough to run a NES emulator.

Even though the Everdrive 64 has a NES emulator, it doesn't play some NES games due to different hardware schemes in some of the games (also known as "mappers"). And some are buggy. What you see is what you get with it - it won't be updated/supported. It was just thrown in as an extra.

The NES Powerpak plays almost all NES games due to updating the mappers when new ones are cracked. If you want to play almost all NES games with no bugs, go with the NES Powerpak.

That's pretty sad, when you think about it.

I still remember my mom and I going to the store at launch to buy the SNES even though I was only 10 at the time. It was a HUGE deal since up until that the only console I'd owned was the NES. At that time my mom was as big a gamer as me and we were both addicted to Super Mario. Embarrassingly enough she was better than me at the Mario NES games, but I was finally able to beat Super Mario World before she did.

The SNES also had my all-time favorite RPG. I've played probably 100 RPG's in my life and Final Fantasy VI is still my favorite. Of course it was called Final Fantasy III in America at release due to Square's stupid numbering system and I didn't know it was actually VI until many years later.

Does everyone remember this US Super NES commercial starring Paul Rudd? I know I do. It was always a dream to play games on a movie size screen. But to think how pixelated and blocky it would look...

Final Fantasy VI is an excellent game While FFIV is my personal favorite, I think that, overall, FFVI is the best in the series!

Heh... Final Fantasy IV was another great FF game they F'd around with the numbering on. It was released as Final Fantasy IV initially in the U.S.

one of my favorite memories of being a kid period.

-summer of '92, my family room became the unofficial neighborhood hangout from 10am-4pm every weekday. All of the other kids in the neighborhood would come over and we'd have Street Fighter II Tournaments on SNES.

other things i can think of:

-NBA Live '95 was a great step forward in quality.
-Mortal Kombat with the censored gray blood

up there with PS2 as my favorite consoles ever.

The SNES is probably still my favorite system, and I gotta say that the games on the system seem to be the least dated out of any other non-current system. In fact, most of the games really don't feel dated at all. (Whereas, for example, the blocky polygonal graphics from most PS and N64 make those systems seem really dated.) I'm sure it's all subjective, but I think the system had the best games, especially in terms of RPGs, and the graphics, especially for the later games, still hold up today, as that 16-bit aesthetic has kinda become ingrained in gaming culture, and still remains relevant.

Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, Super Mario RPG, Chrono Trigger, the Final Fantasy games, the Dragon Quest games, and MOTHER 2/EarthBound are some of my favorites.

Played through Skyblazer yesterday, definitely something of a hidden gem. It's a bit easy and short, but fun all the way through.

Mostly focused on getting some of the rares over the last six months:

Hagane
Super Turrican 2
Sunset Riders
Lufia II
Lufia
Nosferatu
Metal Marines
Brandish
Uncharted Waters New Horizons
Operation Europe
The Lost Vikings
Actraiser 2
Battletoads in Battlemaniacs
Super Buster Bros.
Bust-a-Move
Civilization
Genghis Khan II
Firepower 2000
Ultima Runes of Virtue 2


Gets me up to 257 carts

Release wishlist: Over the Edge Sisters Deadfall (1993) The Hidden Man Bites Dog Black Belly of the Tarantula The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover Something Wicked This Way Comes Watchers Four of the Apocalypse Surviving the Game

Not really, emulators often need more processing power than the original console because they have to basically recreate, in software, various microchips and hardware. It is far less intensive to have actual hardware that just runs the software you want to use than to go the emulator route.
