Only the original playstation is worth emulating. The there is at best a decent PS2 emu, PCSX2.. which runs terrible on my PC.

The Super Nintendo emulators works great and there are TONS of ROMS for it too. I just recommend getting that. They're all over the place too.

Don't even bother with current-gen emulators. Running that stuff is already hard enough, but including a layer of software inbetween? Forget about it.

Of course, getting NES emulators are awesome. I love playing those old classics like Super Mario Bros. The graphics may leave much to be desired, but the gameplay is legendary.

MAME rocks. My current project is to get a PC running MAME in a cabinet with a monitor and all the controls. Later I might even expand it and put in coin slots, nice speakers, art, etc. But I can't get any of my junk PC's running. I found a P4 gateway the other day with everything but a hard drive and power supply, so maybe I'll have more luck with that.

What's the main difference between MAME and a regular video game emulator?

vNES is a emulator that runs entirely in browser, so you don't need to install anything other than Java.

Noting. MAME is an arcade emulator (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator I believe). Basically it emulates a bunch of different arcade games, which is more complicated that you would think. A lot of them use different chipsets, processors, etc. and there's a lot of differences between manufacturers. But there are a ton of roms available. If you get it, I would suggest MAME32, it runs in a nice UI instead of command prompt and has a list of all the available games.
