Then get an actual Nintendo Entertainment System. I find emulators to be rather bland.

Yep, they have the same exact design.

I wouldn't be all that interested, though. I just want to get a good gamepad at some point. I was thinking of getting a wired 360 controller, or better yet, two. The. I could finally put that hub man to use. I only have two usb ports and one is always used for my speakers and the other is often used by my external hd.

If only there were controllers that you could hook up to your computer so that you wouldn't have to use a keyboard.

Never had a problem playing with the keyboard for nes games since the controls have a simple scheme behind them. Unlike starting from stuff from the 5th generation that really start using the sensitivity then a controller's needed.

Wow, I remember the time, where noone had USB game controllers. I felt pretty awesome, being the first one in my class to have one.

I spent such a long time trying to figure out how to use my wireless XBox controller for emulators. There is this separate program you need to install, buy another device... Chaos.

Best bet is definitely to grab a wired Xbox controller. I think then you could even rock some N64 games!
