MAME is arcade games. MESS is everything that isn't an arcade game, all your consoles and computer games.

MAME and MESS were combined years back. If you are running any build of MAME built in the past five years it also contains MESS.

When using MAME for arcade games they call the games roms.

When using MESS within MAME they call all the non-arcade systems software lists.
