Welcome to VirtualNES.com
VirtualNES.com is the the premier online destination for playing classic Nintendo Entertainment System games like Contra, Mega Man, BattleToads, Tecmo Bowl, CastleVania and Super Mario Bros. and many other great NES games, whether they be imported, homebrew, or even the elusive unreleased games.
Unlike similar websites, VirtualNES.com is able to provide you classic NES games legally. We can only provide you with classic NES games that we have an original cartridge of, which have either been bought out of pocket or donated by Players Like You™. If we don't have the games in our possession, we can't have them online.
Here at VirtualNES.com we get emails regularly from hardcore gamers regarding all of the best classics, like Legend of Zelda, Bubble Bobble, and Super Mario Bros. Back in the day, consoles were very different in comparison to how they are now and they didn't offer any poker games. Luckily, the newer poker sites now fill that void, and with their no download poker software, have revolutionized gaming forever.
Like the Legend of the Phoenix
We've had a pretty rough summer here at Emulation Collective. Things got a little crazy awhile ago with the server management—Emulation Collective is run by individual people responsible for individual parts, with almost complete autonomy, there's next to no reporting to anyone, and for the most part, groups of people do not know who the other groups are: R&D and network administration don't talk to each other at all.
So, the datacenter that our hosting provider / networking people contracted was bought up by a different company, and they decided to turn off everything on the premises. The notification that this is happening was sent to... nobody, actually. An decision way upstream of the showrunners at Emulation Collective broke a bunch of stuff, knocking us offline for about two weeks, and then in a barely operational state for another two weeks.
Now, we've brought this website back online, and things should be operating reasonably normally.
Thank you for your continued support of Emulation Collective.
