Classicgaming.com is better (no Super NES ROMs, but it has everything else
you may want in your collection, nix Japanese ROMs). :)
Anyways, there are some really cool NES ROMs to check out- Super Donkey Kong
2 (Donkey Kong Country 2 port) and Somari (a reprogrammed Sonic with Mario as
the main character- for the NES.). By the way, please do yourself a favor and
try out the NES ROMs (all in japanese) Goemon 1 (translated by a friend of
mine, Demi), 2 (if you can read japanese) and Goemon Gaiden (it is also in
japanese, but it's an action game, so it doesn't matter). For the Super NES,
Legend of the Mystical Ninja (Ganbare Goemon 1) is tops. :)
