Ok, so one of our IT guys, knowing that we don't have any games on our computers here at work, sent me the MAME emulator (Google it if you're interested), which has a bunch of old school games (many of which showed up in the recent competition, e.g. Contra, Tetris, Galaga, Dig Dug, Bubble Bobble, Ghosts 'n Goblins, the list goes on and on). Anyway, it got me looking at some other emulators, specifically Nintendo NES emulators. I do plan on buying an old NES at some point, but an emulator seems like it should do for the time being.
Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone has any thoughts or tip on emulators. The one I got was already all set up, so I don't fully understand the whole ROM thing and how to set up games. I also don't know what emulator I want. So if anyone has any tips on a specific emulator and how to set it up with games or anything else, I would greatly appreciate it.
