Any emulator connoisseurs out there?

Are there any emulators out there that have interfaces similar to Steam's big screen mode with box art and if possible full controller support on the main menu? I'm looking to make a living room gaming PC and I want to reduce mouse and keyboard use as much as I possibly can.

The closest I've come is Jnes which allows box art, is there anything similar for other systems?

PPSSSPP does exactly what you are asking for. It's a PSP emulator

Sooty I should have mentioned, I'm specifically looking for emulators that will run NES, SNES, Genesis and N64 titles and if possible all in one.

I remember seeing Dolphin and PCSX2 with those kinds of third-party frontends similar to Steam Big Picture. I have to search for them in their respective forums though.

It would be nice to know though if something like this does exist for the older generation consoles, though I find that I love the emulation experience better on a mobile device (Galaxy Note 2 FTW, will never tire of promoting such a brilliant gadget :D)

Maximus Arcade is what your looking for. I've used it for several months..... while i didn't pay for the version i have. it was given to me from a friend who is big into emulators like myself. It works very well especially if you have a dedicated half cabinet for our game room which we still have tournaments for street fighter and such. makes things a lot more professional looking.

PCSX2 + PCSX2Bonus is nice for something like that.

Hyperspin is the best launcher there is, its absolutely amazing. You need a pretty beefy PC though just for those menus ahahha.
