Does anyone know a way to play Nintendo games on your PC?

Retroarch is free and open source, and contains cores for all kinds of systems. It also runs on just about anything, from a raspberry pi to your PC, to android phones, to the nintendo switch. Naturally, what it's capable of playing is highly dependent on what kind of machine you're running it on.

You're much more likely to encounter a virus downloading an illegal rom file than from the emulator. As such, you should only be playing nintendo games you already own a physical copy of.

Assuming you have some of those, you'd wanna look into some sort of cart dumper, which dumps the information on the cartridge into a usable rom file to then be played in an emulator.

Be carefull with those topics in the forum, since roms and isos are most likely illegal.

You can use a capture card to stream your consoles on your pc though.

Sadly no legal way exists. While emulators are (usually) seen as legal the roms for the games are not and we cannot help you find them due to us being a corporate forum.

As such this thread is locked as we cannot have threads discussing things that would be seen as illegal in some areas.

In the past hour I've both joined and left the RPG Maker subreddit. So many memories were made. Power to the gam mak!
So the number one complaint I get so far is the levels are simply too large. What's funny is in testing I deemed levels taking too long and actually shortened them. Figuring I could beat them in 5-6 minutes so players would be able to do so in probably double that. I was apparently very mistaken, only one player has mentioned even reaching the second area. Let alone the first boss. :kaoswt:
I don't believe it. I actually did some proofreading in my game - and fixed some grammar errors! I feel so accomplished, knowing I can actually proofread my own writing!
...I've had a bad day, okay? Bad enough for me to want to proofread stuff. :yswt2:
Ughhh, July is not my month. Thankfully, it's nearly done.

How do I get the new version of the character creator? Thank you in advance!

I fixed the lips and noses for MZ! The files have been updated.
