    I'm wondering whether it's worth it for me to search for PSX, GBA, and Genesis roms. How large are the file sizes for each system's games (approximately- or a range)?

    genesis-usually around 2-3 MB
    gameboy-older games 2-5 MB- newer 9-15 MB
    psx- average 70-80 MB, just an average

    I'd say less for PSX, around 16-32 from the repos I've gotten

    Don't flame me but, HA!! The average PSX ISO not compressed is 300 MB with the highest I've seen is Final Fantasy VII being 712 MB, and the lowest being Disney's Hercules being 21 MB.

    Yes but that was most likely compressed.
