What game emulators, do you use on your PC, Mac, Linux, Android, ipad etc?

Recommended Posts

The ones I use, on my windows 7 laptop, are NullDC and FBA.

Nulldc is a dreamcast emulator.

FBA aka Final Burn Alpha, plays alot of nice retro arcade games. Like SF2 Hyper Fighting and SF2 Championship Edition etc.

Snes9x is a nice snes emulator, that I use on my android tablet.

I've used "ZSNES" for the "Super Nintendo Entertainment System"; "DeSmuMe" for the "Nintendo DS"; "VisualBoyAdvance" for the "Game Boy"; "MAME", (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator), for 'Arcade' and "PCSX2" for the "Playstation 2".

Although I barely play videogames regularly now, if I do it's on rare occasions.

I actually like it, for some strange reason.

Yeah. The name does have an unusually coolness to it.

Only used, the SNES, Sega, PS1, GBA, and MAME emulators.

I remember that the "VisualBoyAdvance" for 'GBA' had a fast-forward command, that would make 'farming/leveling up' way easier, specially for 'RPGs'. Just because of that, I would normally choose to play such games on the emulator instead of playing them on the original console.

And if I'm not mistaken, there was another 'GBA' emulator called "VBALink" that would allow connecting two games at the same time, as if you were using the 'GBA link cable'. Specially useful for 'Pokémon' games, I think.

Had an Ouya for a while and loaded a bunch of emulators on that. Kinda weird how you could directly download them from the platforms official online store. Very illegal.

Used to use a lot of my PC as a kid, mostly to play a lot of weeb Dragon Ball Z fighting games, but now I'd sooner get myself a clone console and try and buy a physical cartridge or disc. Wouldn't recommend the latter. Nothing hurts more than buying a cheap job lot of Sega Saturn games to discover a good 75% are fucked beyond belief.

Emulators for PC:

PCSX2, a playstation 2 emulator with great support. Some tweaking required to get games looking nice in HD, however.

RPCS3, the only playstation 3 emulator with any support. Compatibility is okay, major games like persona 5 are playable with minor bugs. Requires a beefy CPU.

Dolphin, a gamecube and wii emulator. Most games playable.

Emulators for android:

My boy, a gameboy emulator. Quite simple and works with every game that I have tried.

PPSSPP gold, compatible with most games I've tried.

Both of the above cost money but if you don't want to pay you can find the most recent versions on third party sites.

Notable mentions:

Geforce NOW, not an emulator but a streaming service. If you have good enough internet you can stream games on your phone/tablet, and if you have a weaker PC it can be worth it there too. 4.99 per month with a 90 day free trial currently.

I used that one to play "Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3", so much fun. I once tried to run "Bully", but lagged into oblivion.

Have you tried the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series?

Recent updates have made the emulator much more optimized, so it may be worth trying bully again. I've not tried it personally however san andreas works perfectly for me, and it's a much larger game.

I haven't tried pokemon mystery dungeon but I did download a ROM of it for GBA so I will get around to it soon.
