    This is a poll to see how many of you emulate games on your DS.
    If you do post what games you like/what emulator you use.

    I don't because the DS is pretty poor for emulation.

    Occasionally. I used to use SnemulDS quite a lot a few years ago, played Pokemon Crystal on Lameboy not that long ago and now I have a DSTWO but I haven't used that for emulation much.

    I sometimes use them, but the DS emulation is pretty horrible. So I mostly use my laptop and will most likely be using my Dingoo once I get it in the mail.

    NES emulator I used a few times on the DS.
    SNES and GBA on the DSTwo but I also got an EZ-4 and a SCSD and a M3 CF and M3 SD so I don't need no GBA emulation ;p

    I recently played ninja gaiden in nitrograx, phantasy star in sd8 and double dragon in nesds, and some metal slug in the neo geo emulator, so sometimes i spend more time in emulators than normal nds games in mi dsixl.

    I love to play Pokémon games on my DS, ranging from the old Red and Blue to the recent(ish) HeartGold, as well as Super Mario World, Super Mario Bros. 1-3, Link's Awakening, A Link to the Past and a few other Zelda games. I use nesDS for NES, Lameboy for GB(C), CATSFC for SNES and NDSGBA for GBA. The latter two are DSTwo-specific emulators.

    I would LOVE to play all those games. But i don't believe in playing rom's that you dont own, so i would have to buy them all first.

    No because I simply don't bother anymore. I use my (3)DS for DS games (and 3DS games). I have a perfectly capable DSTWO, but there are so few DSTWO specific emulators, and even considering that, my phone and my tablet are much more powerful devices than my DS (Samsung Galaxy Nexus and Asus Nexus 7).

    Not to mention I can emulate it on my computer, display it on my TV, sync up my wireless Xbox 360 controller and just play it from my bed, which is how >3/4 of the games that I have to be emulated are supposed to be played (on a TV).

    I LOVE emulation on the DSi. It is amazing what all can be pulled off with such limited hardware! It's just a shame that more people do not code for the Super DsTwo

    Yeah, i can understand that. But on the other hand you can expand the use of your DS.

    Nice. Seems like most flash card users emulate. At lease according to the poll.
