Emulate the Nintendo Entertainment System on a PC

Find the NES emulator that works best for you.

For some people, Nintendo Entertainment System emulation is emulation. It’s the only console they’ve ever emulated; it’s the only console they will ever emulate. Sure, they probably know that you can emulate other systems. They might have even messed around with an Atari 2600 emulator once or twice, just to see if it really worked. But that was probably only for a few minutes. NES emulators can suck up hours, days, weeks. [2]

The numbers bear this theory out. While you’re lucky to find one working emulator for certain classic game systems, the NES page at the emulation portal Zophar’s Domain (http://www.zophar.net/nes.html) lists a whopping 77 different programs that run NES games on your home computer!
