A lot has changed since we picked our favorite running apps a few years ago.

When it comes to turning a Raspberry Pi into a retro game console, we’ve longrecommended RetroPie because it’s relatively simple to set up, but still packed with a ton of features. If you’re looking for something even simpler to use, Recalbox is worth a look.
