I've seen a fair amount of mention of old-school games in the "Games that should get remade" and "What game are you playing" threads, but no topic focusing just on them. I also though it could be an appropriate place to talk about how people are playing them, including new "compatible" consoles like the Analogue NT (and similar) and even emulation. To start it all off, I've been playing emulated old-school NES, SNES, Genesis etc games on my PCs for 20 years. I've been getting into it a little more lately. i've been binging a lot of SNES Drunk's videos lately about games that were never released in the US, and so many look like so much fun. About 2 weeks ago, I just finished Mega man VII on NES, which signified me going through every mega man NES game, in order, and beating each of them without using save states, for the first time in my life. I had MM3 on NES as a kid, but never beat it...untill recently. I've thought about picking up a couple of the "official" mini consoles from Nintendo and Sega...but there's just not enough games on them, and then with multiple systems, it's a bunch more USB and HDMI cables to manage, multiple controllers, etc. I see a metric shit-tonne of, what I assume are, just raspberry pi in cases with retroarch on Ebay, etc...but I know the Pi can struggle with quite a lot of games/consoles. Short of buying a whole PC, is there something out there, hardware and software, that makes the most seamless, high-performance emulation console? The "seamless" aspect is really what I'm looking for. To look as much like a purposefully-designed, refined, retail product, with minimal futzing around with expeimenting with multiple emulators, switching controller settings, etc etc.
