    Are there any good console emulators for Linux?[Neo-Geo etc]


    Hi there,

    ummm... recently I switched over from windows to linux, but eversince I've really missed playing my console games [Neo-Geo , SNES , N64].
    Does anyone know if there are any good game console emulators for linux? I've tried some but I wasn't really satisfied with their performance.

    Thanks for any suggestions that I get!!!

    I've used Gens and zsnes on Linux for emulation, but here's everything that I can see from my view atop the portage tree:

    Code:
    illusion portage # cd games-emulation/
    illusion games-emulation # ls
