A ROM file is a digital copy of something because it stands for READ ONLY FILE. Basically, in order to run a ROM, you need the right emulator program. ROMs have been associated mostly with video games. Videogame emulation is a process where people can play video games from consoles on their PC or laptop. Imagine playing Super Mario Bros on your PC and not on an NES. The process is a bit complicated but all you need to do is to have the right emulator and ROM which you can all download for free.

What you need to know about ROMs and emulation

First of all, the legality of ROMs can be a bit confusing. On one account, you can download and use ROMs for free. It isn’t dubbed illegal if you bought and owned the game that you are emulating.

Let’s say you downloaded a couple of free Pokemon ROMs, that won’t be an issue if you bought the right Pokemon game. These games are mobile but some people just want to play them still.

The illegal part is that if you download ROMs and start selling them as games. That’s where it’s bad but nobody will be coming to your house if you download ROMs for free.

Don’t pay for ROMs as well and try to not register to any of these sites. Just find another one that you can download for free and without any requirements.

There are a ton of free ROMs out there so make sure to get the right ones for the emulator that you are using.
