Welcome to the Forum! With Emulation it is always best to have the most powerful base hardware to be the 'Host' system so I would suggest a Pi3.

Hey there!

So, if all you're going to do is genesis / NES, then a Pi 2 would work. But since Pi 2's are about the price of a Pi 3, I'd just end up going with the Pi 3.
