I recently purchased a SNES Classic so I could relive, I won't say my childhood (currently 50), my enjoyment of playing many of the included games as well as some other ones I never got to try. After playing these games (actually my 10 year old, who got a Nintendo Switch for Christmas, has played it more than I have...completing Mario RPG - 19 hours and 19 minutes I believe) I started longing for all the games I've played throughout my life.
So I searched online to find emulators but they really don't give me that feel of playing the oldies but goodies again because it's with a keyboard. So to make a long story short I ended up reading about the Raspberry Pi 3...a relatively inexpensive device that seems like it would allow me to relive most of those classics on a tv with a joystick in my hand...I'm just amazed that this is actually possible...is it legal???
What basics do I need to know to be able to play so many classics on my TV. I've seen "Complete 32GB Raspberry Pi Starter Kits" for like $70 that include: Raspberry Pi 3 (RPi3) Model B Quad-Core 1.2 GHz 1 GB RAM; On-board WiFi & Bluetooth Connectivity; 32 GB Micro SD Card pre-loaded with NOOBS; USB MicroSD Card Reader; CanaKit 2.5A USB Power Supply w/Micro USB Cable and Noise Filter;
High Quality Raspberry Pi 3 Case; HDMI Cable; 2 x Heat Sinks; GPIO Quick Reference Card
Does this contain everything I would need? Is a keyboard needed? What other advice would you give me?
Anyway, thanks for any advice you can give this Raspberry Pi 3 newbie!!!
