A common complaint about Linux is that there is a general lack of games. When emulation is brought into the picture though, it opens up a huge world of gaming possibilities. In this article, we will be looking into what emulation is, installing a gamepad and taking a look at a selection of emulators for different consoles.
Here you will find a somewhat comprehensive emulator list which spans emulators for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. All of the most notable consoles are listed here, but only one main emulator for each. There could be emulators listed that would not be considered the “best”, so if that’s the case please let us know. We will look into it and change it to the preferred one.
Just because these links are posted here, it does not mean we have tested the emulators or the mirrors, so download anything at your own risk.
