Video Game Emulation

I love to Emulate old Retro Video Game Consoles on my PC.
A great Guide to Awesome Emulators; tho, Google the Emulator's Official site as their Download maybe of an Outdated Version: http://www.freeemulator.com/

Atari 2600/ Stella/ 3.9.3

MS-DOS/ DOSBox/ 0.74 (Doesn't quite work on 64-Bit hosts)

As you see; I have Tried a Emulator for Almost Every Console! (Even a Semi-Working one for a Nintendo 3DS; But, I'll Talk about that in another Post; Maybe)

Graphics rendering with Emulators; for Windows mostly use DirectX (Usually Direct3D or Direct Draw); Tho, you can also get decent Graphics with OpenGL. And, certain Emulators are powered by OpenGL only. And you'll find that XAudio2 will work better than Direct Sound.

It's also common to Use a Gamepad with may Emulators as Well.
My Gamepad is an PDP Afterglow AX.1 Xbox 360 USB Controller.
