Most of them just run image files. So rip content from the disc and then burn it into an image and it'll work on pretty much any emulator. Only handhelds and earlier consoles have their own proprietary file type, most just run from an image.

PCSX2 is awesome, it's basically the only working PS2 emulator which just works straight from the off. I use it all the time. Go on their website to check if the game you want is playable, they've got a list of all the playable ones. Find the one you want to try and it'll work. You need to find a BIOS file too. Get both a PAL and NTSC one and you're sorted.

Yep. It's from the same guys as PCXe, or whatever the awesome PS1 emulator is called.

the way I figure it, even if the other newer console's don't support B/C, Emulators do! Which is why I've been looking for good emulators.

Anything pre-PS2 works perfectly fine, basically. You'll need as Gaming PC for PS2 emulation though, it's quite taxing on the system, even though you might not think it. But anything else works perfectly fine.

best thing about pcsx2 is the supersampling. you can render graphics to ridiculous resolutions like 8k and have it downscale to fit in your monitor.
