Though you will be able to play all of the favourite NES classics with very few exceptions, FCEUX offers accurate emulation of the 80s and early 90s titles produced for the original Nintendo. FCEUX also offers support for ROM hacking, debugging and map making.

Currently, FCEUX is one of the most popular emulators for the NES.
