    I'm just curious do any of you play any roms and if you do what games mainly?

    Also, have any of you tried messing around with the netplay options on something like ZSNES.

    I've tried the netplay on zsnes and aside from it being a little big laggy (both on cable modems, however other person is in Vancouver, Canada and I'm in MA, USA) it's fine. We've spent countless hours playing SmashTV and Final Fantasy 3.

    Hypothetically speaking, if I did play emulated games (which I don't), I'd play old favourites that I used to pour money into in the arcades, such as "Powerdrift" & Outrun on the FinalBurn emu.

    And I'd try and get the Star Wars pinball emulator working, with no luck. And get rather frustrated at that.

    But y'know. I don't do that sort of thing, OK!

    I play many of the games from the MAME and ZSNES emulators. I cant wait to explore the Game Boy Advance emulators. Right now, Im playing good ol' Ogre Battle for the SNES!

    ROMtacular!!

    I have yet to try any gameboy emulators, nor do i wish to. GBA's technology to me, seems like a direct copy of game gear only 5 years later...

    I have a Sega Genesis emulator and play Mutant League Football, the Road Rash games, and Skitchin' quite regularly.

    I got Snes9x and Zsnes, and just went on an RPG tear. Practically the only non-RPG game I had was MKII.

    Speaking of RPGs, I'd definitely go back and play the original Final Fantasies. I never played any of them.

    I've played 3, 4, and 5, I think. Also, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3, and Link to the Past are very good.

    I recently played through A Link to the Past. Definitely in my top 10 favorite games of all time. And yeah, I'd also play Mana and Chrono Trigger, as I never played those. I was never a huge fan of RPGs.

    The final fantasy series, for me, gave Nintendo the money it needed to still be around today.

    Golden Axe 1 duels rocked!!!!! And still rock, despite it's a little harder to control using keyboard vs controller.

    Considering the SNES has'nt worked for quite some considerable time, I loaded up that thar Z SNES with Secret of Mana, and damn, that game is STILL the buisness.

    I really wanna play that game online... maybe soon.

    I wouldn't recommend doing it with anything less than broad band. I play final fantasy 3 online with a friend and we still get some considerable lag. Also, version 1.35 locks up everytime we try and netplay. We went back to 1.337 with out a problem.

    I use the MAME emulator to play old arcade and atari games. I have a working Atari 2600 but I can't hook it up to my TV anymore. I also have a NES that's in working order (barely) so I get to play all the old classics.
