DIY Gaming On the Cheap

If you like retro video games, you have a few options.You can find many old video games ported to new systems and PC (the Nintendo Switch is great for Neo Geo games, but oddly not for NES and SNES games). You can get a first party classic game system such as the SNES classic edition.You can get a game system like Super retro Trio+.You can even find an original classic game system and plug it into your TV's traditional video connector, or analog to hdmi upconverter.

You can also use raspberry pie to build your own simulation based retro game system.It's inexpensive, powerful, and easier to install than you might think.All you need is a raspberry pie board, a microSD card, a micro USB power adapter, and a box to put it all in. And, of course, some form of game controller.Thanks to developers of the open source RetroPie, LibRetro emulation API trunk and EmulationStation front end, transforming a $35 PC board into (relatively) quick and easy for every video game system made 2,000 years ago.

You don't need to weld anything, or write any code, or even process the command line, unless you really want to.However, there are plenty of options to explore and menus to explore in depth, so you should know a little about your computer before you start.If you don't mind fiddling with your computer Settings, you'll be fine.
