I've seen one that was a firefox extension, and plenty to download, but is there a website that I can visit to just play old NES games? Online, no downloads, etc.

I'm not looking for a directory site like, or a site with a bunch of knock offs, but somewhere to play the original games in 8 bit form.

Totally off topic, but have you tried out –  thunderror Jul 21 '10 at 8:15
Okay, this isn't actually an emulator for multiple games, hence not an answer, but if you are a fan of Mario, check out . You can play Super Mario Bros as any one of several other classic characters... such as the Contra guy. :) –  eidylon Jul 22 '10 at 4:11

I found the following from Google, but I can't vouch for them as I never had a NES myself.

1980-Games looks pretty sweet... I'll give it a shot... –  mike the mike Jul 21 '10 at 8:51

Here's a pretty cool NES emulator: JSNES and it doesn't require any browser plugin, HTML5-based, it runs faster in very recent browsers.

That's pretty cool. The name is misleading though, it's an NES emulator, not SNES. The "JS" stands for JavaScript. –  Senseful Sep 15 '10 at 22:05

You'll need to have JAVA installed, but this should get you going: VirtualNES
