So I have been playing a lot of MiSTer lately and I have to admit, its really changed my thinking about my hobby. I was really obsessed with hardware. I wanted to buy all the systems I cared about and do the various mods to make them the best they could be. Now here I am with the MiSTer and I am completely at a loss for some of the mods and hardware I had every intention on buying.
Game Prices were already crazy before I even started getting back into retro games so I tried to make sure I only bought things I was really nostalgic about. I think the only thing I miss about the MiSTer is being able to use my own games but at this point, maybe that isn’t that bad.
So now I am in wait and see mode for just about everything. The Analogue SG, the hdmi mod for the GBA. I think I am more likely to buy a modded portable than I am something that connects to my RGB set up at this point.
(Well, I am going to buy a GDEMU off ebay soon but thats about it).
