Macs are often considered terrible for gaming, but recent advances in Apple silicon chips have paved the way for some spectacular retro game emulation. In this video we’re going to take a look at the cheapest Mac available today (the M2 Mac Mini), priced at $599. I’ll walk you through the setup process and perform game testing for all your favorite systems: from classic retro content like GBA, NES, and SNES, all the way to more powerful systems like Dreamcast, N64, Saturn, PS1, PSP, GameCube, Wii, Wii U, Switch, PS2, PS3, and Xbox.
