Looking for Nintendo ROM’s? Costing around $44 (£35/AU$49), these tiny computers are an extremely compact way of accessing your old game collection at a budget price. Providing that you’re willing to experiment, the Pi is customizable in terms of choice of emulators and library interfaces. The downside to this set-up is that it is bare bones, meaning you need to supply your own USB controllers, operating system, and storage space. This option is perfect for project enthusiasts and tinkerers, but isn’t as accessible as its commercial counterparts.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Sega’s spiny speed merchant proved himself a worthy rival to Nintendo’s Mario with his Mega Drive debut. Yet it was the spectacular loops, corkscrews and clever environmental tricks in the follow-up that proved his makers carried the same swagger. With co-op partner Tails in tow (whose real name, Miles Prower, is one of gaming’s best dreadful puns) this blistering adventure was one of the finest two-player games of the 16-bit era and still leaves many of the modern Sonic games for dust.

For the retro collector who has everything, or for the Japanese culture enthusiast in your life, Nintendo’s Famicom Classic is a rare and delightful gem. It shares a level of build quality (and adorability) with its NES counterpart, but comes with a couple of cult favorites that the US model missed. Filling a couple of obvious holes are River City Ransom and Mario Open Golf, but there are also some lesser-known or Japanese exclusive titles that still hold up well, stuff like platformer Atlantis no Nazo or Tecmo’s puzzler Solomon’s Key. And while the original Final Fantasy is an important piece of history, Final Fantasy III (included on the Famicom) is a better game to actually play in practically every regard. The best thing about the Famicom Classic, however, has nothing to do with the games library. It’s the design. True to its namesake, the Classic is stylish in vivid white and deep maroon, and has a much sleeker and more modern-looking form factor than its boxy grey cousin. There’s also space along sides of the console body to slot in the controllers when you’re not using them, which is not only really convenient but looks sharp, too. And while the interface and games are all in Japanese, fluency is definitely not required for the vast majority of the included games, and the interface is easy enough to navigate around with a little trial and error (in fact, if you have access to the NES Classic, it’s virtually identical). If you’re so inclined, it’s actually a great way to practice some basic Japanese as text is all displayed in hiragana and katakana (the original Famicom couldn’t display kanji).

Everyone loves Symphony of the Night. Everyone. In fact, it’s very tiring to hear how much they love it. I’ve got absolutely nothing against the game, but to me, the “metroidvania” thing is not conducive to a true Castlevania. Super Castlevania IV launched shortly after the SNES, and to me it’s one of the last great traditional Castlevania games. The art is still gothic as it should be in a game like this, as opposed the anime-like style of the newer games, and the level design is linear. In my mind, what makes the game better than Symphony is just how pure it is. The monsters are classic, the levels classic, and Simon Belmont is of course, classic. It’s also the only Castlevania where you can whip in 8 directions, which is a godsend. Play it, and send Dracula back to Hell. See a few extra info on Download ROMs & Emulators.

Star Wars games are fabulous, and, if you are over 30 years old, i would add historical to that. I remember even this days, after 20 years, how i broke my first joystick playing Tie Fighter. It was fabulous! I will discuss about the Star Wars game series and few PC configurations to play the games at max settings.

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire – Here’s another N64 title that still thrills many of us who discovered Star Wars in the ‘90s, and I’m confident new fans will fall in love with it, too. Its Battle of Hoth levels alone are worth the price of admission. And if the tough boss battles against the likes of IG-88 and Boba Fett get to be too much for you, just open up a new save file and enter the cheat code “R Testers ROCK” as your name. You’ll then have access to all the game’s missions, and crouching for 15 seconds will grant you full health, max ammo, and a burst of invincibility long enough for you to gain the upper hand. Check out this retro gem on GOG.com or Steam.

The first Force Unleashed was a fun but flawed game. Hopes were high for the sequel, but unfortunately, it still faltered in many ways – primarily with a silly story about being a clone that lasts all of three hours. But The Force Unleashed II is still a beautiful game to behold, and there’s something extremely satisfying about tearing into stormtroopers with force lightning and dual-wielded lightsabers. It’s just too bad we’ll never get to see how the planned sequel would have turned out. Read more about Star Wars video Games at YourMoneyGeek.

Let’s frontload this entry with a big caveat – Star Wars Galaxies was not a great game. The now defunct MMO went through so many revisions as to even alienate its biggest fans by the time the 2003 title shut down in 2011. But what Galaxies had was unbounded ambition and great ideas, if not always the means to implement them. Rather than being fully combat focussed, Galaxies was all about the community. Want to be the Cantina bartender? Sure, you can make an in-game living that way. Or an artist? Or a smuggler? Or a musician? Or taxi service. All possible. Want to own your own home, your own plot of land? All this was promised, as well as the usual “route to being a Jedi” stuff. Even better, it knew the magic of the universe – although this was later overturned (a change which was vocally resented by core players) initially only a handful of players would ever become Jedi, after fulfilling a gruelling set of criteria.

While multiple-video-card gaming is still a path to great gaming, know that a game must be written to leverage multiple cards properly, and game developers in recent years have been de-emphasizing timely support for CrossFireX and SLI in games. Sometimes this support only emerges well after a game’s debut; sometimes it never comes at all. Also, Nvidia has been putting a damper on SLI in the last couple of years; it has kiboshed support for installing more than two of its late-model cards at the same time, and only a subset of its higher-end cards can be installed in SLI. Our general advice for mainstream buyers is to concentrate on the best single card you can afford.

PC custom build recommended to play Star Wars intensive GPU games : Alienware likes to promote its lavish Area 51 PC, but the more subdued Aurora line is more affordable and has something for everybody. Models range from basic to burly, with the base model packing a six-core Intel Core i5-8400 CPU and an AMD Radeon RX 560 graphics card. That’s a pretty basic system, but you can customize a PC to be as bad as you want it to be. Dell has options for the RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti, as well. One of the main reasons that this is on our list is Alienware has designed the entire chassis to be tool-less, so upgrades or swapping hardware are literally just plug-and-play affairs. That’s a very handy feature to have for anyone who likes fiddling inside their PCs, and though you won’t need to upgrade for a while, it’ll be a cakewalk when you do.
