I want some kind of adapter that will let me play old Nintendo games on my computer, I want to play the actually games not illegal emulations, I have all of the games i want, I just need an adapter that will let me play them on my PC. Does such an adapter exist?

Why you want to do such a thing is what I want to know. The NES is best enjoyed on a television. And I don't think there are such adapters around, least not that I know of. (If there were, my hardcore NES playing friends would have told me about it by now...)

Now, its developement for debugging through a computer, its a ISA card that alows external cartridge hookup, however I would asume it also allows the playing/testing of the game. Price probably isn't cheap, contact them for more info..

I didn't think it was illegal to have a emulated version of a game you own.

If it is then just try and get a old nintendo.
