You can play retro games with RetroPie. I have NES and SNES installed and have hundreds of games for them.

After installing RetroPie, you will need to put games into the proper folders in order to play them. Some games load with a black border around the game, you can press the Vufine's button to change the display mode, which will make the game take up the whole display

You should hook your Pi up to a monitor to setup RetroPie.

Setup controller: Controller Configuration
When you get to the welcome screen, hold a button to start the controller configuration process.

Transfer roms: Transferring Roms
You will need to put the ROMs for the consoles you installed into the proper folders. It is out of the scope of this tutorial on obtaining game ROMs.

If you have any questions, I suggest looking at the RetroPie Docs.
