Scattered throughout the Internet are several great ways to play Mario games, even if you don't currently have a working NES, SNES or other Nintendo console. Enter "Emulation", or Emu for short. An Emulator is a piece of software that copycats, say, a Super Nintendo......out of your computer. Yep, you heard that right. Now, how well this works, and how well you can play, all depend on what kind of computer you have, and various peripherals you own.

To put it simply, unless you have a computer better than a 400MHZ Pentium or AMD, with at least 64MEGs of RAM, and a good joystick that comes close to the system you're trying to emulate, you probably shouldn't even bother.

Collected here on this page, are the best Emulators I know of, for different Nintendo consoles. Some of these will work better than others, and sometimes that's also a matter of personal opinion.

These are links only to each Emulator's homepage.
We do not host ROMs images, or Emulators here.
We do not support any of these Emulators.
E-mail the makers of the Emulators for support, not Us.
We will not give you links of where to find ROMs.
