    Default Emulation on PC?

    A lot of emulation talk points towards the Pi, but I'm looking to play some old games on my AMD 2200g HTPC instead.

    Has anyone done this, and any hints or tips please? Probably going to try Emulation Station as a front end, and will mostly be playing SNES games for starters. Cheers

    I'm not really into gaming, but I set up a laptop with MAME for a friend who loved it. Packs are available in the usual places with the emulator and thousands of games.

    I'd give Retroarch a go. Plenty of tutorials out there and is pretty much a one stop for all your emulation needs. I've never used it on a PC but have it on my modded switch and GPD XD android tablet.

    not tried it but theres a plugin for Kodi that can launch your emus and act as a front end so its all nice and organised, oviouly you will need to download the emulators indiviualy for each system you want
