Download Limit

  • Nitro ROMs Good for Redump PSX rips. (1 GB daily limit)
  • Romulation Useful for Wii, GameCube, NDS etc, may be no-intro rips. (Account required)
  • RuTracker Has a lot of hard to find complete set like Dreamcast, PSX, 3DO, CDi, TurboGrafx-CD etc (account required for some stuff, site entirely in russian, use translate if you really need to.)
  • Pleasuredome Great private tracker for getting full sets of many systems (No-Intro, Goodsets, Trurip, Redump, TOSEC). Does not allow newer systems. Strict ratio site that requires you to maintain a positive upload to download ratio.

User Uploaded Direct-Download (Forum post) Sites*

Use some common sense while downloading!

  • PSP and PS1 games
  • Mostly Wii games, but also other Nintendo games
  • Many 'premium-only' links.
  • 3DS games
  • General warez site.
  • Rom Shepherd Great site to request or fill requests for ROMs. Also has an invite only tracker, but do not ask for an invite on the forums, only privately.

*All require registration.

Game Recommendations

Game recommendations are highly subjective, but big lists like these usually cover the worthwhile games for each system.

Searching for ISOs

A lot of the above sites have ISOs for disc-based games, but some of the more obscure titles can be hard to find. If you want to find these games, searching for their ID number is generally more effective than searching for their title. Both Mobygames and GameFAQs will list these under the game's release information. This number is region specific and is very useful if you want to find an ISO from a specific region.


These can sometimes come in handy when you need download lots of links and you can't be bothered to manually deal with 13 different parts every 20 minutes, they are also sometimes a necessity when you're faced with a .DLC file, you will then need something like JDownloader to download what you're after. Below are just some of the more popular Downloaders.

NOTE: DO NOT install JDownloader with the web installer, it contains toolbars, adware, malware, etc. Use the offline installers.


pyLoad - An alternative for JDownloader that does not require Java to be installed, it's open-sourced too.
