Despite the number of fancy gaming consoles that are out there these days, nothing really beats the experience of classic, simple gaming. Sadly, most retro games are long gone — unless you use one of these Retro Entertainment Consoles to relive some of your fondest memories growing up.
This extremely lightweight console looks and feels just like the controllers you used to spend your Saturday mornings fighting over, with a simple, blocky design and an appealing red, grey and white color-blocking schematic. It comes already preloaded with 600 of the games you used to spend hours playing (so you can still spend hours playing them).
All you need is an HDMI connection, and you can start playing instantly. There's even the opportunity for you to (healthily) revive old rivalries: there are two controllers, meaning you can engage in multiplayer battles. You can pack it up and take it anywhere with you with ease, so you can even head over to your friend's house for some old school battles or bring it along to a housewarming for some instant nostalgic gratification.
No need for fancy, expensive consoles when the best games might have been the simplest ones: usually this Retro Entertainment Console is $299.99, but you can get it now for $54.99.
