Blast from the past: 10 emulators for Android
Ah, the magic of emulators – those neat applications that make software run on hardware it was never supposed to be compatible with! They have been around for quite some time allowing us to play old-school video games on our computers. But now that smartphones have grown capable enough, all sorts of emulators have been developed for mobile platforms as well. Today we're bringing you 10 emulators for Android – emulators that can be used for playing retro video games, but also for getting familiar with computer systems from 30 years ago. Check them out, throw on some games, and have fun! Just don't ask us where to get ROMs (games for emulators) from as we won't tell you.

I'm not sure why they listed ePSXe instead of FPse. FPse is miles ahead easily.

I think this list is incomplete without SNES emulators being mentioned.

This list was very helpful but I agree with the others there is no mention of NES or SNES emulators. I recently got Jnes for Android and it's great, if there is an update to this article I'd include that.
