RETRO GAMING CRAZE IS ALL IT’S CRACKED UP TO BE

WE HAVE THE BEST GAMES ON THE PLANET!

Retro Gaming Craze started because I love to play vintage video games. I have a huge collection of games and wanted to hook up with other people who had the same passion for gaming like I do. One of the things I want to do is review games and put honest evaluations of new technology which makes gaming experiences better than ever before!

I’ve even noticed they’re bringing back some of the old games like Donkey Kong and Mario Brothers with even more graphics than it had and in higher definition. But you have to admit, there’s nothing like a Pinball machine or an old arcade game with PacMan, right?

But here’s what I’ve noticed:

The RetroPie project has always been one of the best things about the Raspberry Pi. This software suite turns your tiny, single-board computer into a retro gaming engine and has powered such exciting projects as the CupCade. RetroPie includes all of the emulators necessary to play anything from the Atari 2600 to the Game Boy Advance. The new version, 3.0, it features many improvements including the use of virtual gamepads and “lots of configuration tools accessible from Emulation station including setting up WiFi, a configuration editor, file manager, audio settings and more.” In short, he RetroPie project just got a lot cooler and it’s a great way to familiarize yourself with the Pi. While it will never beat the smell of pizza and greasy quarters at the local arcade/slice joint if you close your eyes and tilt your head just right while playing Galaxian on the RetroPie you can still hear your fifth-grade friend whining that they keep crashing in Pole Position.
