[Software] The Best Linux Emulators 2012
I chose each of these emulators based on popularity. Why popularity? Because the more popular it is in the open source community, the better your chances of getting updates, fixes, and support. Also there's a good chance that it will be a packaged version ready to download for the different Ubuntu / Debian desktops out there. I would recommend that you start with your software center or package manager before googling. If you can't find it then head over to the PlayDeb website and add it from there. (You will have to add the PlayDeb repository once, but after that everything on playdeb should show up in your software center.) Quick disclaimer from my legal department, lol. Emulators aren't an exact science yet. That means while these should work in theory but not all games and roms will run the way they're supposed to. Google my friends. Happy gaming!
Gamecube / Wii / Triforce
Sega Genesis / MegaDrive
** UPDATE **
I couldn't get bsnes to recognize most of my Super Nintendo roms and zsnes is only available for 32bit Linux. So here's a ling to install snes9x-gtk. This will work on 64bit Linux.
