Title basically says it all, one of the main things I'm looking forward to with my first Android phone ie being able to play all the games from my childhood.
Obviously Game Boy and SNES will work fine, but what about N64? I see there is an emulator on the market already so I guess it's safe to assume that there's already lesser phones out there running it already but I just wanted to be sure. Like I said, first smartphone, so I have no idea how any of this stuff works.

My OG Droid with a 550mhz processor and 256mb of RAM can run emulators just fine. I'm sure the Bionic will be able to as well xD

I haven't tried N64 but yeah, NES and SNES are NO problem for my OG Droid. In fact, i bit the bullet and paid the $2 for the Sixaxis Controller app that lets you pair your PS3 Sixaxis controller to your phone via Bluetooth and use it. I was just playing Super Mario Bro's (first one) and got to level 5-1 in about 4 minutes. lol Good stuff.

I tried using my OG Droid keyboard so i had a D-Pad and any of the keys on the keyboard as A/B for NES games but it was still a little tough to do. I also tried the on-screen stuff, and yanno, it works, but its just not the same. lol

Not sure how the N64 Emulators would work with a PS3 controller since the layout is different enough. we'll see, I don't have much need for N64 though as all I ever played was Goldeneye, Mario Kart 64, and StarFox. MarioKart i wouldn't mind playing, but really, I like all the old NES/SNES games and I have 700 or so of the ROMs.

Can't wait to see how this will work using the HDMI on my big screen lol. Thats what I really want to work well.

I can tell from experience that the n64 emulator works perfectly on my DROID x. I think the bionic will probably have much smoother graphics.

Which one do you use? I ask because it looks like most of them have been pulled from the Android Market. I even paid for the NES emulator I was using but realized today that it was now gone and not even in my 'history of purchases' on the android market website. Whats up with that lol

I found the APK for it, but i'm betting they're trying to avoid legal issues by keeping those off the market.

Ok yeah, thats the one I had heard about. I'll most likely pick it up, hell, its only money right? :) I like playing games all on one device. Sadly, I use my phone more than my PS3 haha

I was mainly concerned for N64 games myself, but my friend has a Droid X and can almost run N64oid perfectly fine. And they updated it so it works with the dual core CPU now, so N64 games will run fine. SNES, NES, Gameboy, all those run on anything dude.
