Emmulator heaven...relive YOUR past  by balzzzy

balzzzy says: I'm a big gamer and have grown up with video games my whole life. There are so many games that we all grew up with that created so many memories. All of the defining moments of what games we liked, the different genres, and the iconic characters we would follow and grow fond of. If only we could relive those moments. Fellow gamer, this list is for you. If you like this list, put the name of your favorite video game character(s) of all time in the comments. *NOTE: Honorable mention goes to psx4droid. This app allowed you to play old PlayStation games on your mobile. While it had a few bugs it was an incredible app that I still enjoy playing. Google removed the app from the Market as it was a matter of "Content Policy violation". It was only available for 8 months before being removed.
balzzzy's picks
  1. Nesoid (NES emulator)
    Nesoid (NES emulator) Nintendo introduced the NES in 1985. Some of the most memorable video game characters of all time debuted on this system. 1100 games takes up about 250MB of space. Incredible.
  2. SNesoid (SNES Emulator)
    SNesoid (SNES Emulator) The successor to the NES, this system pumped up gaming and offered more memorable games that are still ranked up there in my top 10 of all time. 8,922 games takes up about 12.8GB of space.
  3. GBCoid (GBC emulator)
    GBCoid (GBC emulator) Not many played the GameBoy Color but it was a step away from the monochrome predecessor. A few classics available and geared towards the hardcore gamer. I would suggest GameBoid over this if I had to choose.
  4. GameBoid (GBA Emulator)
    GameBoid (GBA Emulator) When Nintendo released the GameBoy Advance, it was like playing portable SNES games. Some of the best portable games were released on this version. 1,111 games takes up about 8.13GB of space. Highly recommended.
  5. Gearoid (SMS/GameGear emu)
    Gearoid (SMS/GameGear emu) I loved my GameGear. I traded the original GameBoy for it. SEGA released some incredible games back on their only portable system. It trumped GameBoy in terms of graphics at the time, but didn't get nearly as much third party support. Still, a great walk down memory lane.
  6. Gensoid (SEGA Genesis Emu)
    Gensoid (SEGA Genesis Emu) Ah the Genesis. The system that took the SNES head on. It shot from the hip and asked questions later. One of my top three favorite systems of all time with games that Nintendo never saw because of the graphic nature and violence. SEGA fans unite!
  7. Ataroid (Atari-2600 emulator)
    Ataroid (Atari-2600 emulator) This is a rarity and I highly recommend you explore the roots of gaming history. For many, this is what introduced them to console gaming. Geared towards hardcore gamers, it's worth having Atari in your collection.



Top 5: Mario, Sonic, Link, Samus, Nightcrawler
