    Can i mod my wii to play PC games?

    I know you can install playstation, 64, Nintendo, Sega, Atari and other emulators BUT i was wondering if you could play PC games on the wii? Is there any way?

    I seriously doubt it.

    You can emulate plenty of PC games on the Wii but don't expect to get Crysis working. You can emulate:

    Atari ST (Experienced in emulation)
    MSX (Experienced in emulation)
    Chip8 (I've never tried)
    DOS (experienced on the PC but I've never tried on the Wii)
    Commodore 64 (Experienced in emulation)
    Sinclair ZX Spectrum (I've never tried)
    NEC PC-9801 (I've never tried)
    NEC PC-8801 (I've never tried)
    Commodore Amiga (Experienced in emulation)
    Apple IIe (I've never tried)
    Amstrad CPC (Experienced in emulation)
    Atari 800/XL/XE (Experienced in emulation)

    Yeah, mostly, but some Scumm Games are up into the 2000's I believe (not sure what year Blue's Birthday was made)

    I listed every PC that the Wii can with the exception of ScummVM (Which I love!) that CyberTails mentioned. If you are talking Windows exclusively you can use ScummVM to run old point and clicks games like the ones made by Lucas Arts and Sierra. DOSBox can be used for old DOS games. Otherwise your Wii isn't running anything modern.
