Which systems  do you want to try next? Maybe we can point you in the right direction.
Oh and obviously you have only downloaded the games that you own, as it would be illegal to download the games you don't own.
My garage has about 450 Arcade machines just so I can play the games on MAME ;D

That's a mighty impressive garage you've got their Mike  ;D

I've had to build a small warehouse next to my house, just to house all the software that I actually own, so that I can download the games to play in my emulators  :P

I just play them while they briefly pass through my possession - no warehouse required.  :P

I currently rent a small industrial area just outside Warrington to house all the originals that I own so that I can play the 'other' versions c/o the magic of TOSEC :)

I've found a half-finished Mega Drive emulator for the DS. It works the same as running DS homebrews.

Some of the larger games won't run at all, and many have noticable glitches, such as invisible potions in Golden Axe, but it's worth it to be able to play Sonic 2 on a bus.

I have the original carts for the games, but I refuse to carry them onto the bus. Does that make it illegal for me to play them on the bus?

I don't think you have to actually carry them on your person lol.

The whole thing is a grey area in the UK anyway, I wouldn't give it *too* much thought ;)

I might build a fake megadrive cart slot to stick onto my DS. Then it will look like I am playing the game off the cart. Some people might think it is real and ask where they can get one.
