Rom/emulator setup on HTPC

jaredjared College Station, TX Icrontian

I have a Windows 7 HTPC in the living room that I want to load some emulators/roms on to. Wife and I have been talking about how fun it would be to play through some of our old childhood games (TMNT anyone?). Mainly MAME, NES, SNES, Genesis stuff.

Few questions...

What is the easiest/best setup? Right now we run Plex, which we love. Last I looked there is no similar solution for emulators, so I suspect I'll just have to download separate emulators, use mouse/keyboard to launch/save games, etc. Not ideal, but it's what I am expecting, correct me if I'm wrong.

Emulator recommendations? I'm good on ROMs. Glad I saved all those ROM packs from high school!

Controller recommendations? Amazon is overwhelming. I'd rather go off of first hand experience.

Some of my old school favorite (other than the obvious Mario, Sonic, etc) were TMNT, Xmen, Streets of Rage, etc. What were some of yours? :D
