Emulators

Comparison

Visual Boy Advance-M is the best emulator for the GBA.

Gambatte is the best emulator for GB and Gameboy Color.

Higan is the only emulator that properly emulates the Super Gameboy, though the quality of its Gameboy emulation is inferior to that of other emulators, unless one hunts down an older version of bSNES, which used the Gambatte core for its Super Gameboy functionality.
