@lnxw48a1 Wouldn't you feel better putting RetroPie on a an RPi?

@brandon My oldest son ( #sonOne ) built me a little arcade countertop with a !RasPi, but it is too large to bring when I'm working out of town. Thinking about giving it to his brother ( #sonTwo ) just so it'll get used.
@brandon I should ask #sonOne what exactly he put on it. It's pretty neat. It has the same kinds of buttons and joysticks that would be found in a 1980s arcade game, with space for two players.

@lnxw48a1 My suggestion would be to put RetroPie (that's the name of the software that you flash) on a microSD w/ an RPi3 and get a USB game controller

A lot can be bought through ModMyPi: modmypi.com/index.php?route=pr

@brandon How does RetroPie compare against PiMAME? (Though the project as a whole is more than I am willing to spend right now.)
