    Just installed Retropie on one of my Raspberry pi's and copied some Sega Megadrive roms to it. Showing my kids the wonderful graphics and gameplay of games from my era.

    Next will be some ZX81 games, just wondering what they will make of them :), as they are definitely the xbox360 generation. Lets see if they can get into jetset willy or jetpac.

    It's funny I've just come across this thread, i've recently been tinkering with a pi3 my dad dropped off for me to fix haha been playing around with retropie and I'm amazed! Going to try and persuade him he doesn't need it and to go with a fire stick instead haha
