    I would like to emulate old Nintendo, Playstation, etc. games on my Note2. I have no idea where to start. Can anyone help get me started?

    Thanks!

    Google and YouTube should be your best friends. I'm not sure about what websites, but definatly go "game emulators on Note II" on YouTube or google

    There are N64, Playstation and Gameboy Emulators on the PlayStore.

    Just look in the playstore. There are some really good ones. Then just load up your roms to the phone.

    Thanks for the info. Are there any issues with having the emulators and rome installed? I'm guessing they eat battery life when being used, though anything else?

    Obviously something like a PlayStation or N64 emulator well drain battery, I've only personally used a gameboy one so it wasn't particularly demanding.

    After you're up with the emulators as mentioned earlier. If you have a PS3 controller around, root your phone, and download Sixaxis Controller from app store. You'll have the best experience playing all those old games.

    you can also get a MOGA controller. It's $50 at best buy and works really well after you set it up. Set up is a little tricky though, make sure to download MOGA unlocked from the playstore, it opens it up to work with just about any game, where as the stock app from MOGA only allows you to play MOGA approved games.

    I use nesoid and snesoid. Work well, you can set a controller up to work with then "fairly" well. A wiimote connected via Bluetooth works the best for NES.
