You definitely have Raspberry Pi if you landed on this page. As well as you even likely to have tried playing on your Raspberry Pi. By chance, there are a couple of options which help to play games on RPi.

Here they are:

  – Computer games for free, which made especially for Raspberry Pi users and by Raspberry Pi users and being kept in linux repository.

  – Retropie app for Raspberry Pi. There is a special retro games emulator that can be downloaded for free and then be added with any kind of old fashioned games (70s-90s arcade and console ones) called “retropie roms”. They are usually provided for an additional fee within different sources on the Internet.

Unfortunately, the repository choice is very narrow and withal RetroPie allows running very old games from the era of DOS and NES. But have you ever thought of running something more modern from 2000th like Counter Strike, Diablo or GTA? If yes, I have exciting news for you! Since today (March 30th, 2017) Updated ExaGear Desktop makes it possible to run such iconic games on Raspberry Pi!
