What are some good games to run on an emulator?

Asked by XOIIO (18118points) February 28th, 2010

I have a super nintendo emulator and can get a gameboy one, and most likely some for any system. What are some games I should get for them? I only have star fox right now :)

For super nintendo the only good ones i can think of are Mario and Zelda. And I only know GBA games. The Sims is the only good one that comes to mind although there are others.

I love “Mario & Wario” for Super Famicom (SNES in Japan). It’s an excellent puzzle game that was never released in America, so it is fun to play a game that not many people on these shores have played. Plus, it uses the SNES mouse, so you can use your computer mouse on it .

Go find a torrent and just get the pack of games for whatever system you want. A lot of games are hard to find due to copyright issues. Plus it means you can get everything in one shot instead of saying “Oh, I want to play game X and having to go find it.

@buckyboy28 What SNES emulator do you use? I have this one and for some reason the mouse cursor won’t show up.

I always love going back and playing Star Fox again but several emulators have trouble with the FX chip games so they sometimes run slow.

Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger, any of the Donky Kongs, EarthBound, any of the Megaman games, Pilot Wings, Top Gear, Turn and Burn: No Fly Zone, Wings 2: Aces High, Wolfenstein 3D, Zombies Ate My Neighbors

Obviously any and all of the good Mario games (you might even want to try out the offputting but interesting Mario is Missing or Mario’s Time Machine.

As for gameboy definitely get Super Mario Land, that game is timeless. The DX version of Link’s Awakening and the Oracle of Ages. Obviously you can’t forget Pokemon, can’t think gameboy without bringing that up.

I always used snes9x for my emulator needs, but recently I’ve been using one made for PSP. It’s nice having my entire videogame childhood in my pocket.

@buckyboy28 NVM, I just had to configure the input.

@Shuttle128 I’ll take a look at some of those, thanks.

@XOIIO I also use ZSNES. I’m sure there’s other emulators that do it, too.

Earthbound is my all time favorite from the SNES era :)

I used to play “50 Mission Crush” on an Apple ][ emulator… one of my favorites as a kid.
