The October issue of Stuff magazine has a mega rundown of the Top 100 games ever, and there'll be a few that will bring back fond memories of Amiga and SNES-playing pleasure. But more likely than not your old console is languishing on a landfill somewhere, so here are our top picks for taking it old-skool.
Oh, and remember that to download and play these games legally you need to own a copy of the original game. Ahem.
1) For Spectrum picks – World of Spectrum. Almost every Spectrum game ever made, and you can play them directly through your browser.
2) For Amiga games – Lemon Amiga. A great resource for Amiga games with links to lots of emulators.
3) For C64 fans – Lemon 64. Sister site to Lemon Amiga for C64 gamers.
4) Another C64 site – C64.com has loads of C64 games for use with emulators.
5) For all formats – Rom World. A good source for dipping into loads of formats.
6) For Coin-ops – Extra Mame. Emulates stacks of coin-ops from the 70s to the early 90s.
7) For Macs – Mac MAME will do the same for MAc fans.
8) For top choice – MESS. Works a bit like MAME, but emulates lots of old consoles. You need to download a BIOS file for each system you want to emulate.
9) For NES on iPhone – NES.app. Play your Nintendo faves on your iPhone via a touchscreen version of the old NES joypad.
10) For Gameboy fans – try GameBoy Advance ROMS
