    If you wax nostalgic for some of the old days of gaming, then you might want to take a peek at this emulator for Android called RetroArch. It includes a smorgasbord of emulation possibilities for some great past gaming devices/systems. Here's a list:

    What do you guys think? Is it worth checking out for a small chance to relive some of your old favorites? Also, if you are aware of other game emulator alternatives for Android, share them in this thread.

    Thanks to rakumiazuri for the tip!

    So instead of my buying an emulator for Nintendo 1, and Neo Geo, and Gameboy, I can get one emulator for them all????

    SOLD!

    I did buy a Nintendo emulator some time back, but I hated using the onscreen controls on my phone to play the games.
    Also, you should get this now, as Google Playstore may take it down, as they have some of the other emulators.

    Interesting post I feel is directly for me, lol. I just got into the Game Emulator app scene this last week so I could play the old Pokemon games for GameBoy Color. I have been using Johns GameBoy Color Emulator app and his Emulator game list app, I love it, the free version comes full featured with a small ad banner at the top of the game that does not interfere with the gamem even allows you to have Turbo A/B and cheats from GameShark/Genie etc. I love it, but not sure how it compares to this one.

    RetroArch has been around for awhile. I plan to use it for some old PSX games to see how it stacks up to the emulator FPSe.

    I do really like Libretro's philosophy of an emulation program coded by nostalgic gamers, for nostalgic gamers. He is very adamant about these types of things remaining free and open source so I look forward to seeing people move away from all of the pay for emulators in the Play Store and move over to this one platform that has it's API's coded for various operating systems universally.

    - PC Engine / PC Engine CD (emulator: Mednafen PCE Fast)

    that's what I'm interested in... I'd love to see which old PC games you could play on it.
