Go back a few years and you might actually remember the hayday of the Super Nintendo, the console which followed the immensely popular Nintendo Entertainment System. Fast-forward to today and all you have left to relive those memories (unless you SNES console DID survive) is through one of the many SNES Emulators available, most of them freeware.

Here we have perhaps one of the best SNES emulators in ZSNES. It can emulate virtually any SNES game, though you will have to have the ROM available in order to actually play the game.

ROM files are available via many sources online, though in most areas, it is only legal to have the ROM if you actually own the game. Sometimes it's not allowed at all.

With that behind us, ZSNES allows SNES fans to play games through emulation and in our test, we were able to actually play some of the games by using a Sixaxis controller. The same is possible with an Xbox 360 controller if you're up to installing the drivers for it!
