    Hi All...in honor of the 20th anniversary of the Nintendo Famicom system (on July 15), better known as the NES in the US, I started using an NES emulator to play all those wicked games from the 80's. But the keyboard is a really lousy way to play.

    Any idea on what gamepad is reasonably priced and functions well with a Mac? I know there are dozens of options from the PC workd that are USB and should work, but I was wondering if anyone had a particular gamepad that they found works really well with their Mac.

    I am using a 667 TiBook.

    Thanks,

    hey, I was wondering where you downloaded your emulator and the games. I have tried a few places but they sucked bad. And my old NES disappeared somewhere.:(

    For an emulator, try http://www.bannister.org/software/rocknes.htm ...it's pretty solid. As for ROMs, I haven't downloaded any for years, I have them all saved since my PC days. Try doing a google search for "nes roms" and youll get a whole lot I'm sure.

    Any opinion on a gamepad?
