Chapter 3. Raspberry Pi Gaming Operating Systems

The Raspberry Pi, while a powerful little device, is nothing without software to run on it. Setting up emulators, games, and an operating system can be a daunting task for those who are new to using Linux. Luckily, there are distributions (operating system images) that handle all of this for us. In this chapter, we will demonstrate three distributions that have been specially made for gaming.

In this chapter, you will learn:

  • Where to download multiple gaming operating systems from

  • Similarities and differences between PiPlay, RetroPie, and ChameleonPi

  • How to access Raspberry Pi's shared folders on your computer

  • Copying and uploading game files to your Raspberry Pi
