Games "A few weeks ago I got my Pi delivered and started working on what I would describe as 'universal console'. In this post I describe my initial thoughts about this project and present an adapter that allows you to use SNES controllers as input devices for the Raspberry Pi." This is what the Pi is all about. Amazing work by Florian (can't find his last name!), code and instructions are available. So cool.

Well, for me it would be the fun of doing it, learning how to use the GPIO pins. Also from a practical standpoint, the Pi only has two USB ports and they share bandwidth with the Ethernet port (it's an Ethernet-USB bridge). So, given that at least one port would be taken up with a keyboard and mouse, and perhaps the other with a WiFi dongle, it makes sense to use the extra inputs already on the device.
