    Hello.

    I've noticed that Raspberry Pi 3, running a Linux Rasbian Operating System, is gaining momentum in Retro Gaming.
    I wanted to assert a request for a "Pi Gaming" Discussion Header within the GamersOnLinux forum. I think it could help a lot of people who are curious about details & news in Pi Gaming.

    I noted that somebody built an OpenSimulator Server on a Raspberry Pi 3 successfully, with upgrade of the power cable & overclocking the little machine.
    Perhaps Raspberry Pi 4 & Raspberry Pi 5 will gain quick headway within Retro Gaming, & might even quickly catch up to capability of running PS2 & PS3 Games, for an example.

    Cheers!!

    Alright.
    I'm thinking:
    Black Pearl Gaming Console,
    Powered by Raspberry Pi & Linux Noire.

    Essentially, fork Rasbian & make a Pi Gaming Operating System that's designed to resemble the PS3 OS, for efficiency of Gaming Processes.

    Print Custom Plastic Pi Cases & SSD Cases.
    I noticed a cool Raspberry Pi 4 Case that resembles the old NES system, & has a Cartridge that holds an SSD Drive. I just got a 1TB Samsung SSD Drive for a birthday gift, & by the time that Raspberry Pi 5 is released, perhaps there will be options for installing a Video Card to the Pi System.

    I'm thinking, use Custom & OpenSource Game Engines, created with Blender, or coded with C++, & connect to a PiGames Store so that people can easily find & maybe even buy custom games, or simply list their custom games & game creation kits.

    Make it a Linux Gamers thing.
    ^.^

    (Sorry. I haven't figured out a way to edit a previous post yet, not actually.)

    I was talking with a company that prints custom plastic enclosures, & I figured to simplify the case:
    A Black & White half Oyster Shell that acts like a replacement lid for the Pi 3 CanaKit enclosure.
    It could be sold promotionally to support the Pi Gaming & Noire Linux Project Team.

    :D

    I just figured it could be a fun & useful project.
    Thanks.
