    I have 2 Wii-motes (and 2 nunchucks) and a GC controller.
    Could U recommend me some very good multiplayer games for NES, SNES, N64 or PSX? That are the consoles I can emulate good to decent on my Wii [​IMG]
    Maybe even before, but I don't want the graphics to be too ugly.

    I have already played Tetris Attack and Super Mario Kart for the SNES for multiplayer, and found them both very amusing. Is there maybe a Tetris game for those consoles that supports multiplayer?

    Tetris Battle Gaiden is a great 2 player Tetris for the SNES, it's Japanese but it's Tetris so it's pretty easy to figure out and most of the menu options are in English. Other 2 player games that are pretty fun (all SNES) are Street Racer, Super Smash TV, Killer Instinct and the Bomberman games. There's more but I can't remember them off hand, I'll go through the collection later on and let you know.

    Edit : Add Unirally/Uniracers to the list as well, can't believe I forgot about that one! If there's a decent Megadrive emulator one of my favourite 2 player games of all time is Dr Robotniks Mean Bean Machine, don't know why but I always preferred it to the Puyo Puyo games on the SNES.

    For the NES, probably Bomberman. It's a classic multiplayer title. For the SNES, there's Super Mario Kart, F-Zero, and probably some fighting games. For N64 and PSX, there's very few 1 controller multiplayer games, with the only one coming to mind that's fun is Worms World Party. Sorry if I'm not much help, I only really play my games alone so yeah...

    I have 3 controllers, 2 Wiimotes and 1 GC controller.

    Can't believe I forgot Bomberman! Thanks for all the suggestions [​IMG]

    Since the N64 and PSX emulators don't support Wiimote support, I can't really play those systems.
    So I'm more looking for SNES and NES games.
    Are there any good Fifa games on the SNES? And which Pac-Man should I play?

    Micro Machines was a fun game to play. I have vague memories that you could also share a pad between two people. Dunno if that would go down well in an emulator, or your current controllers. Worth a try. [​IMG]

    San Francisco Rush: 2049 - N64

    It was more than a racing game. There was "Battle" and "Stunt" as well. The race levels were LITTERED with short cuts and fun things you could do. I still play it all the time with my cousins (our ages go from 15 - 24) and with my dad. It's NOT your average racing game.

    I have a hard time getting people to try it because they don't like racing games. Well honestly, I don't either! But Rush 2049 really isn't that much of a racing game!

    for N64: get the super smash bros injected wad and install the channel to play that. that should be on everyone's console.
