How are you playing all of these? I would love to go back and play some of the classic Megadrive games of my youth, but I find emulation a bit daunting
An emulator called Fusion. It's so simple to use and emulates almost every SG-1000, Master System, Game Gear, Mega Drive, Mega CD and 32X game nigh on perfectly. Individual games can be downloaded in seconds or you can download complete collections in one archive which obviously take a little longer.
Emulating cartridge based systems is simple, although you'll need to "acquire" a copy of the Mega CD BIOS from each territory if you want to play those games which isn't too hard.
If you want to emulate say PlayStation for example it get's a little more complicated as you'll not only need the BIOS files but you also need plugins for graphics and sound which can be fiddly and it's often a case of just finding what works best with your system.
You can even get software that let's you use a DualShock 3 or 4 with your computer and there's a really easy to use program called Lunar IPS that allows you to apply patches to games.

What I really want is a Saturn emulator. But they're gooseberry fool.
Hasn't Saturn only just been cracked very recently? Give it time and I reckon a decent emulator will come along.
