I haven't bothered looking at them in many years, but the last time I did, it turned out that the best course of action was to just use a real Playstation.

hard to say, but epsxe is the more popular one.
unfortunately, due to the dubious nature of emulators, you have to magically find a bios for them otherwise the emulators would be flat out illegal and would be taken down by sony.
and a modded ps2 slim goes pretty cheap used.
