    I'm looking to download some (free) homebrew games but I can't find any on the web. Most of the sties I look at seem to want you to pay and register. I always thought Homebrew was a free program as were the applications that went with it.

    Can anyone help?

    Also, I have lots and lots of NES/SNES/MegaDrive/C64/etc games on an old HDD.

    I know there are emulators that can be installed onto the Wii, but which are the best and most simple to use.

    Finally, is it worth installing Homebrew browser?

    Let's start with your last question: yes, install it. From there you can find and download most of the homebrew games / emulators available for the Wii and view how other people rate those games / emulators.

    So installing the Homebrew browser will enable you to do all the things you want and answer all your questions at the same time.

    You'll find games and emulators there. And yes HBC is worth installing.

    The emulators I use are the following:
    FCE Ultra GX (NES)
    Genesis Plus (Genesis)
    Hugo-Wii (Turbo Grafx 16)
    SMSPlus (Sega Master System)
    Snes9x GX (SNES)
    Wii2600 (Atari 2600)
    Wii64 (N64)
    VBAgx (GBA)
