What are the best emulators for the Wii U? Snes, NES, Sega, etc.
None. There are no emulators for the Wii U yet. The homebrew scene is still fairly new. Just be patient.
Not even through vWii?
Through vWii you can use any emulator for Wii. I'm talking about hacking for the actual Wii U itself.
I think that it's not worth the efforts. Why would you need emulators on wii u? You could just get them on pc or mobile phone. I am open to any critics on this.
Not all people have a powerful enough phone to emulate anything above SNES though. And PCs are very expensive if you want anything good.
..and it's a bad experience using touch buttons for playing
Not likely to happen till nintendo stops supporting it so they will leave the exploits alone.

I hate touch controls idk how anyone plays that way especially when your fingers start to stick to the screen.
I thought that already happened. There are only a handful of good games for the Wii U. It's definitely not worth the $300 it costs.
That too. The screen is also pretty small on most phones.
Umm Cuz this is the wii u forum?
Well I like homebrews, and piracy exists... So you have many better alternatives of emulators
For NES and SNES the official emulators (Virtual Console) would be a pretty good start.
I'd love to have a retroArch port for WiiU Wouldn't it be possible now we have a HomeBrew Launcher??
VC Injection isn't working that good, at least with N64... A real homebrew N64 Emulator would be great...
It's not so easy as it may appear. I was trying to port snes in userspace but I gived up after that i seen that snes9x has 50+ files. And I did not find any snes emulator easy to port because most of them, differently than LiteNES (that is a nes, not snes emulator), are heavily platform dipendent with complex build scripts
Judging by retroarch for 3DS, it's likely to come to Wii u once homebrew is more established, the homebrew libraries are in a more mature state etc. Will take time.
I have several open source emulators sitting in my development folders, waiting for the ability to use sound on 5.5. Once that's figured out, I will proceed on finishing the ports.
There are several virtual console games that are able to be played through loadiine.
