I have been looking all over for good sites that host game ROMs. The place I was always going to for those died on me *sigh* so now I am on the hunt.

First one i tried is freeroms.com. Nice looking, easy place, seemed good enough but then when I tried to DL a rom, it wasn't doing anything.

So then I go to emulatorstation.com. Nice looking site I have to admit and tons of games, but 1. nto the one i was looking for to being with and 2. kept taking me in a circle.

Well a lot of seraching and Cheese's help took me to Retrobase.net tongue.gif wow that was worth it...NOT it said the roms would be free, and when i attempted to DL one this romconnectorthing DLed instead and i almost had to pay fricking money to use it.....so it aint free.

Now I need your help, the people of Matazone. I'm trying to look for a GOOD site that hosts different consoles of ROMS such as NES, SNES, gameboy, gamboy color, Sega genesis and so many more if a place hosts more with the ones i mentioned. It's gotta have emultors along with all sorts of roms. The definition of a good site would be easy to access, free downloads with no lil catches and of course, a very wide variety of games.

If you know how to bypass the one I saw, or know of any or many good sites that might be helpful to me I would be so grateful.

First off, the ROM im talking about is a game you would find onthe usual console like nintendo or sega genesis, consolations like that.

Second, your right there D-man this site is nifty, but theres this warning that keeps popping up saying the site will shut down in 48 hours...whats that about?

I love Roms. They are so much fun. I wish I had a controller so I did not have to use the keyboard. I see they make USB converters for PS 2 controllers, maybe I will get one. GO ROMS!!!

If you find one, just post the link in this topic smile.gif *Big hugs to anyone who looks*

Good luck.

Also, a good place to find ROMs is on file sharing programs, like kazaa or e-mule.

I have this one DVD for my mod'd xbox, it has every single SNES game ever created. American, japanese, or europe. Its... sweet....
