Retrogaming, also known as classic gaming and old school gaming, is the playing or collecting of older personal computerconsole, and arcade video games in contemporary times. Usually retrogaming is based upon systems that are obsolete or discontinued.

Retrogaming has three main activities; vintage retrogaming, retrogaming emulation, and ported retrogaming. Vintage retrogaming includes games that are played on the original hardware. Emulation involves newer systems simulating old gaming systems, while ported retrogaming allows games to be played on modern hardware via ports or compilations. Additionally, the term could apply to a newer game, but with features similar to those of older games, such as an “retro RPG” which features turn-based combat and an isometric camera perspective.

What kit do we use?

To run our old console and arcade games, we use a Raspberry Pi 3 that runs LAKKA. But there are tons of other boards and distributions to get you retro-gaming in no time!
