I'd like to provide the latest update to my list of working emulator/simulator sites for various videogame and computer platforms. All of these enable play directly within your browser, so there's no sticky business of downloading software and finding the necessary game files to get it all going. These are all great sites and we should all show our support. This is the "January 2011" edition of the list and, naturally, I'd love to keep adding to it, so suggest away. Here goes:
