I'd like to play Super Mario World (SNES Mario) on my Macbook laptop using a controller that's somewhat similar to the SNES controller. What's the easiest way to do this (Software, controllers etc)?

You can download a SNES emulator for the Mac OS edition from here, then dump a Super Mario World ROM from your own cartridge.

In regards to the controller, you can buy one or use the keyboard.

Hey erdeni, welcome to the site! While discussing emulation is cool since it's not illegal, n the future, please don't link to ROM distribution sites or answer a question with "download a ROM from a site", as these are illegal activities. Since making your own personal private backup from a cartridge isn't technically illegal, I kept the part about dumping a ROM. – Mana Sep 2 '11 at 2:13
oh, thanks for the advice,I'll keep that in mind. – erdeni Sep 2 '11 at 3:23
