An emulator basically makes your computer think it is something else
For instance you could get a megadrive emulator which you'd run, and you could load files called roms, and these act as the cartridge but are just files and you could play it like you would the console, with new emulators even allowing joypads and the like.
So you could find them for anything. Though some are fake, and many are off the web now. If you downloaded roms it is only legal if you have the original cartridge and have them only for 24 hours.

There are many emulators for different consoles, megadrive, snes, nes, gameboy, etc. Some work, some dont

Hope this helps

plus emulators nver run prperly on a pc becuase the playstation processor is 128bit compared to a pc with a 32 bit processor, so the games never run smoothly anyway

Yeah emulators are legal but the actuall rom is illegal unless u own a real copy of the game
if not you have to delete the rom withing 24 hrs of the download

there are no emulators for ps2 or Xbox that work NONE
There are Ps1 Virtual Gamestation works well
and 64 there are many that work
