    hi, with all the greatness of the retropie project i have been wondering if it would be at all possible to run and play Game & Watch games/roms, i believe they run in DOS, which we have with rpix86, are we able to get them to list in emulationstation with a gamelist.xml, as you probably can guess i’ve not really wanted to test this out as of yet, as i was hoping for some feedback from you guy’s with the knowledge,
    thanks

    Best solution for this is probably playing Nintendo’s own Game and Watch Gallery titles under Gameboy emulation.

    FWIW, I think what you’re suggesting could probably work, and there are LCD and electronic games with emulators that aren’t covered by Game and Watch gallery that could probably be played this way quite happily.

    But when it comes to Game and Watch, Nintendo unsurprisingly do the best job, often incentivising gameplay and including optional visual upgrades.
