    I was wondering how exactly I could get some gameboy games on my Mac. I have NES on my iPod touch and I know you need ROMs or something. I'm basically clueless. I just really need a link to an easy to use site but any help is appreciated.

    ROMS are a grey area, because in most cases they are copyrighted works and using them in most countries would be illegal.

    Some people make original games which are quite good (and legal)- the easiest way to find them is on Google.

    Boycott Advance and Visual Boy Advance are the only two Gameboy Advance emulators for OS X. KiGB is a good one for Gameboy Colour. Emulators are technically legal, but the ROMs themselves usually aren't.

    It's definitely not kosher to ask for ROMs here on the MR Forums. The only thing I can tell you is that ROMs aren't hard.
