Kega Fusion emulates almost every Sega console there is, and it is available on the Mac.

Kega Fusion is the best Sega emulator and it is cross platform, meaning there are versions for both the PC and the Mac. Mac users have waited for a long time for a decent Sega emulator and this one does just about everything one could ask for of an emulator. Remember, in order to use an emulator one must have legally obtained game roms. Bright Hub cannot tell you where to get roms nor does it endorse the illegal distribution of said roms.

This is where Kega Fusion shines. Not only does it emulate the Genesis, Sega's most popular console in the U.S., it also emulates the following Sega consoles, according to the website: "Sega SG1000, SC3000, Master System, Game Gear, Genesis/Megadrive, SVP, Pico, SegaCD/MegaCD and 32X." That means you have all your Sega emulators in one piece of glorious freeware. No more switching between two emu's to play different games.
Not only does Kega Fusion emulate almost every Sega system for use on the Mac, it also has a handful of useful features. Each game gets 10 save states that are easily chosen and used. When you install it the proper BIOS are included, which means you don't have to search the internet to find them (very handy!). Also, it has full USB controller support. Oh, and it emulates pretty fast too. In fact, I've never had a problem with a game not loading or freezing on me. It works perfectly. What more could one ask for in a Sega emulator for the Mac? Nothing.

Well, if you want to play some old Sega games but don't feel like pulling out your old machine, this is the software for you. No more messing with cords or old TV hookups, just choose a rom file and load it in Kega Fusion and you are ready to play. Kega Fusion is a retro game lovers dream.

Kega Fusion is the only Sega emulator I use with my Mac(and I've tried them all). It works perfectly. It has a bunch of save states per game and it offers controller support. The perfect Sega emulator for Mac? I think so.
