I have loved video games from an early age, and given the Raspberry Pi's versatility I decided to use it to run RetroPie for some nostalgic video gaming!
My first project was my Raspberry PiStation (https://www.raspberrycoulis.co.uk/gaming/build-your-own-raspberry-pistation/) where I housed a Pi inside an old Sony Playstation, but I always fancied my own arcade machine at home.
After seeing Pimoroni's excellent Picade (but being slightly more expensive than I had hoped), I decided to have a go at building my own RaspCade, using as many existing parts that I owned already. I looked online and was frustrated by the number of arcade laser cut designs that required payment, so I set to work and created my own version instead. By the way, these files are available FOR FREE to download if you want to try this yourself!
As a result, the RaspCade was born!
I have also been writing this guide for The MagPi Magazine, so some of you may well recognise this build along the way.
