When I try to install ZSNES VLC is being uninstalled and the other way round. I don't want to make any changes to them whenever I do the installation.

Does anyone know why this is happening?

Could you add the output of the installation of the zsnes ? – user26687 Jan 1 '12 at 16:25
sudo apt-get install zsnes – MattsuOrusan Jan 5 '12 at 22:00

There is a ppa which has fixed this problem.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:smaxein/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install zsnes
