Z-SNES if you dont know is what is called an emulator.
Emulators (there is just about one for every console you can think of now) are programs that allow your pc to play games designed for other consoles.
Z-SNES is my personal favorite of the Super Nintendo emulators, there are quite a few.
Getting hold of the emulator is simple it is readily available from hundreds of sources on the internet. Just type ZSNES on a search engine on the internet and you can download it in a matter of seconds. The roms on the other hand are much more difficult to get hold of but you can get them from people who call themselves ' burners'. Be warned possesing a rom on your PC when you dont actually own the origanal cartridge is in fact illegal.
Of course Z-SNES plays Super Nintendo games as if you were actually playing on the console but this is just the surface.
Snapshots can be taken of your gameplay.
You can record your gameplay and save it for later playback.
You can play against or with other users over the internet.
You can configure the controls to make combination button presses at the touch of one key, ideal for fighting games like Mortal Kombat.
You can play all the games you couldn't afford when your were a kid.
Has a built in cheat system.
I stumbled across emulation early last year whilst surfing on Ebay. I found a cd that boasting 600 Sega Megadrive games playable on your pc. Through pure curiosity and the fact it was on going for 3 pounds i brought it. After that it did'nt take me long to get my hands on Z-SNES and i haven't looked back since.
Overall if you like Super Nintendo games and you have a PC Z-SNES is for you, you never look back.
