The one I settled on is RockNES. I always pick the one that has the save/load state feature. And Game Genie code support is nice, too.

fceu has save/load state as well, if you can find the just-before-it-died version that has it.

Yes, fceu has joystick support. My Nyko works perfectly. Fceu Ultra is really nice, it even supports mapper 5 for Castlevania 3.

For GB/GBA, Visualboyadvance with the Gnomeboyadvance frontend is a nice combo.

For SNES, ZSNES is very nice.

For N64, Mupen64 is good.

I have a TV card for my Cube so now my computer can play just about everything Nintendo ever did. Maybe there will be a DS emu soon?
