welcome to the forums. since there is no verizon 83xx series device i will move this to the 88xx forum (as indicated in your profile). There are certain NES games available if you search around. Zelda is one.

The emulators for BlackBerry are not very good and not worth your time. If you are looking for more of a "gaming phone" I would suggest a Windows Mobile based device. They have some good emulators.

My brother has a T-Mobile Wing and he is very happy with it. I don't know if it is good for games or not though.

So is it hard to put movies on? Can you have music on it? Is it hard to operate?

Yes it is hard putting movies on...I still haven't figured it out. Yes to the music. The 8830 is quite easy to operate IMO. Have you even checked your phone out yet?

Blackberries run Blackberry OS exclusively.

You will enjoy it! .. Movies aren't that hard to put on there either, as well as music. Google is your friend.
