    Complete roms collection with fast bandwith

    You just have to register and get full access to an exhaustive list of roms. They post a report of antivirus scan, never see that before. Only the emulators are missing.

    ๐Ÿ‘ Pros:    Full of roms|Security disclaimer and report
    ๐Ÿ‘Ž Cons:    Need to create an account|No emulators|Anyone can upload

  • Retro emulator console
    There's a ton of them, some easier to access than others. is fast and has complete sets for NES SNES and Genesis, and allows ftp access for batch downloads, it does requires a free account though. is slower, dosen't allow ftp access, but they have a large archive, and don't require an account. has most everything but it's a chore to sort through... - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago

    After you have your emulator of choice installed you have to download the rom for the game you want to play. My go to site for that the last few years has been the rom depot. - Source: Reddit / 8 months ago
