Hey guys,

Check it out!

I love playing retro games. Although, as a child growing up, I only get to play games at the arcade after school and playing the neighbor gaming console. Frankly, I can't remember much but I do remember getting fed up at Contra and blisters on my thumbs.

My parents were divorced when I was around nine. Together with my mom and little sis, we moved around a lot. We were living in a rented room until finally, we got our own house. Gaming was far from my mind with school and having to join the military.

I got a job as a civil servant and started to learn to use a computer. During breaks, my colleague would play old retro games on their PC which was saved on a diskette. I've always loved the computer since I first saw it in a military trade show when I was a kid.

I got my own computer with Windows 3.1 and later upgrade to windows 95. I continued to learn and play games on my PC. When I got my bonus pay, I spend it all on the new Sony Playstation. I had earlier tried it out at one of my colleague's home. Pretty impressed with the 3D game graphics then.

I actually got the modified version of the PS1. That means I could buy cheap copy games for like 3 for $10. My little nephew loved playing games on it. He would come into my room and asked me if he could play. Sometimes, he'll get stuck and asked me for help. Now, he's all grown up and the one that teaches me to play the latest game. lol.

Anyway, a few years back I discovered RetroArch and how to play retro games on your PC or Raspberry pi. It was like heaven. Now, I can play all the old retro games that I either have played or never got the chance to play before.

Nowadays, retro gaming is the norm. You can buy any retro gaming console that is out there right now. You can also DIY. There are many cheap computers available that you can turn into an entertainment and retro gaming system for your home.

If you're looking for a good computer to turn into an entertainment and retro gaming system, this mini PC windows 10 pro would be great. I especially like the small box size. It won't look out of place beside your big-screen 4K TV.

You can link up the system via Bluetooth to your speakers to listen to your favorite music via Spotify or to your controller to start playing retro games. Remember, this is a windows PC so, you can also download apps like Netflix to watch movies.

I like to use Kodi for watching movies. The two most important software or apps that I always download is Kodi and Retroarch. If you want to learn how to watch free movies, click here to visit this website. Use Ivacy VPN for Kodi.

A mini windows 10 PC is a really great entertainment and retro gaming system for the living room. And, of course, you can also use it like any other PC. Get a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard to check and reply to your emails quickly, watch youtube and surf websites right on your couch.

If you have a Samsung phone like my Note 10+, you can even mirror it via Microsoft your app or Samsung Dex. You'll need an adapter to connect your phone to the TV and be able to share your photos, check phone notifications, play android games and even video call with Whatsapp.

Pretty cool. What you guys think?
