Raspberry Pi Logo
As a child of the 80’s I have been a gamer since – well forever. That makes Retro Gaming a part of my very core!
I started off on a Commodore +4, then moved to a Commodore 64, then an Amiga 1200, in 1992 I got my first Windows based PC, a Pentium III – DX2 66MHz (with about 500Mb of HDD space) if I remember rightly.
From there I started building PCs and then I moved to Mac and I am still here. As the same time I was also playing with consoles. Of course I had a Gameboy, but I was more of a Sega fanboy, Mega Drive, Saturn, then I moved to Playstation, 1 -> 2 -> 3 and now 4.
Playstation was my system of choice but I still have had xBox, xBox 360, and currently xBox One.
The amount of games I had for each system was criminal, however what is more criminal is the fact that the majority of them got traded in. If only I was wise then I’d still have every one of them displayed in my games room, insetead I imagine they are long since in a land fill somewhere. Devastating!
Along the way I have also picked up a NES, SNES, N64, 2DS, Neo-Geo Pocket, a Master System, a Game Gear and an Atari Lynx along with a really nice Atari 2600 and a few other random systems I have picked up along the way.
I love how gaming has progressed – I love gaming. I’m still at on the PS4, and I have the XB1 for Microsoft exclusives – and Fifa, but I love retro gaming. So I have finally decided to try out some old skool memories using a Raspberry Pi.
