· Role Playing Games (RPGs) - 119 - A whole lot of RPG amazingness!
There are two different options here, one with a keyboard/mouse, and one without the keyboard and mouse. For the home computer sets (Commodore, Amiga, Apple II, etc.) a keyboard and/or mouse will be needed.
This is a complete Raspberry Pi build, this uses an 8GB RAM version of the Pi 4! It will come with EVERYTHING you'll need to plug it and start playing. Everything is set up, installed, and ready. Includes two wireless controllers!
This will come with:
- Raspberry Pi 4 B (8gb RAM option)
- Heat sinks on the Pi's chips
- Fan-cooled clear protective case
- Power cord
- HDMI cord.
- Two 8bitdo wireless controllers (SN30 Pro)
- My 256gb RetroPie / Raspberry Pi 4 microSD card.
- (Optional) Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse)
About the microSD card that comes with this:
This is the ultimate SD card for the Raspberry Pi 4! It is so sexy you might leave your wife/husband/kids/dog/grandma just to spend more time with this microSD card! This will range from early home console classics, all the way up to the PlayStation 1 and Dreamcast era of gaming. Relive your childhood with all these amazing classic games, or you could even relive somebody else's if you truly feel like it with this SD card! Almost every game has box art, a video, and a description of the game to help you choose what to play.
The console list and game count is as follows:
· Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) - 843 - This has a complete North American game set.
· NES Upgraded games - 75 - This is a set of NES games that have been 'fixed' or 'upgraded' in some way. These could be color corrections, controller fixes, general game fixes or bug fixes. A few games here have been altered to resemble their original Japanese version, and a few have been made to resemble their arcade counterparts.
· Nintendo NES Rom Hacks! - 4,870 - User/Community created games. These are generally modeled after a preexisting game that has some form of user created modifications. These modifications (hacks) can range from simple tweaks like the 'NES Upgraded games' to major changes that essentially create a new game. Ever wanted to play as Pikachu in The Legend of Zelda and name your character Samus (lol what?), now you can! This covers almost 400 different games, and for any Tecmo Super Bowl fan, there are over a thousand games here just for TSB!
· Famicom (Family Computer) - 1,404 - The 'OG' in terms of Nintendo home consoles. This is the original, Japanese, NES. 352 of these games are translated into English and these can be found in a folder at the bottom of the Famicom game list.
· Famicom Disk System - 247 - A Japanese exclusive console that has Famicom/NES games on disks, somewhat like a 3.5 inch floppy disk. R1 and L1 are how to eject and swap disks respectively.
· Super Nintendo - 838 - In my opinion, this is the crème de la crème. So many great games, this is what I grew up on! Who did 16 bit better, Nintendo or Sega?
· SNES Rom Hacks! - 631 - Same as the NES hacks, but with the SNES. There isn't as wide of a verity as the NES, but there are some good hacks here.
· SMW Rom Hacks! - 622 - Same as above (SNES Rom Hacks), but this is ONLY for the best and more popular Super Mario World rom hacks. Ever tried Kaizo Mario???
· Super Famicom - 1,631 - Much like the Famicom, this is the Japanese SNES game console. Comes with a pretty big set of translated games (183 games to be exact).
· Game Boy - 580 - This might not be as powerful and flashy as its successors, but a true innovator for handheld gaming.
· Game Boy Rom Hacks - 21 - Same as the other rom hack sections. Not as wide of a selection, but some good ones.
· Game Boy Color - 578 - It's a Game Boy, but with color (and completely new games)!
· Game Boy Advance - 1,120 - If the SNES was the crème de la crème, the Game Boy Advance is the crème de la handheld. Everything works well. Due to size restraints, there are only North American released games here.
· Game Boy Advance Rom Hacks - 27 - It's like the Game Boy rom hacks, but more Advance!
· Nintendo 64 - 315 - The majority are smooth like butter. Some still lag here and there, but this is miles above what the Raspberry Pi 3 can do!
· Nintendo 64 Hacks! - - Some good, some bad, some are even ugly. I'll let you decide.
· Nintendo DS - 165 - Pretty cool right? Top rated games. A few Japanese games, but the majority are North American released games. There are even a New Super Mario Bros. rom hack. An analog controller is recommended.
· Virtual Boy - 24 - Works well, but still might make your eyes bleed...
· Sega SG-1000 - 68 - Most people don't realize Sega was making consoles and computers prior to the Genesis and Master System. This is one of them.
· SEGA Mark III - 39 - An early version of the Master System.
· SEGA Master System - 248 - A latter version of the Sega Mark III.
· SEGA Genesis - 832 - This is only the North American 'Sega Genesis' games. Just remember, Genesis does what Nintendon't (shouldn't it be Nintendoesn't?)
· SEGA Mega Drive - 384 - Actual Japanese Mega Drive games. Has 31 translated games.
· SEGA Genesis Rom Hacks! - 275 - Much like the other rom hack sections here. This has a lot of Sonic hacks.

· Sega CD - 23 - Top rated games for the Sega CD, and one Sonic CD rom hack.
· Sega Dreamcast - 23 - Top rated games. Includes three translations.

· Atari 7800 - 55 - Everything works well.
· Atari Lynx - 69 - Everything works well.
· PC Engine - 313 - Japanese "TurboGrafx 16" games. Includes 26 awesome translations!

· SuperGrafx - 6 - Everything works well.
· PC Engine CD - 23 - Just the top rated/ well knows games here. Includes six translations. Rondo is here yes.
· Sony PlayStation! - 89 - There are a lot of bangers here. Top rated and most popular. Everything you are wanting and expecting, plus a few you probably didn't know you wanted! Yes, you can switch discs.
· Daphne (LaserDisc) - 14 - Before you even ask, the answer is yes.
· Game & Watch - 59 - Not much to say here, if you know what this is, you know what to expect.
· Neo Geo Pocket - 9 - Everything works well.

***Below are the computer sets, they will need a keyboard and mouse for the most part, unless otherwise noted. They are not as reliable as the above console and arcade sets, but they generally work for the most part.
· Amstrad CPC - 106 - Some can use a controller, most need keyboard. Most games take a while to load. This does not have video previews, only game-play images / boxart.

· Commodore 64 - 1,843 - Some can use a controller, most need keyboard. Most games take a while to load. The screen sometimes flashes or does weird things when the game loads.

· MSX - 623 - Seems to work well.

· ScummVM - 134 - Point and click games, so you might want to think about using a mouse for these games, that is, unless you have some techno-telekinesis powers.
· Infocom Z-machine - 43 - TEXT ADVENTURES!!! Everything works well. Needs keyboard, and an imagination might help as well. These do not have video previews or images (they are text adventures...).
