Do you use RetroPie?

Hello, since I've been playing games from old 8-bit Atari 2600s to PC Windows 10 - as well as keeping most of them in my collection. I was wondering if you guys use RetroPie for the Linux PC or for the Raspberry Pi? I did try out on using the NESPi+ for my Pi 3B+ and it had looked cool like it mimics the original NES console.

The problem is that RetroArch as well as Modern LCD TVs have latency problems - especially when using BlueTooth controllers, which is a pain in the neck. I also had to buy the Sinden Lightgun in order to play some classic old Light Gun games like Area 51, Time Crisis and Duck Hunt.

The thought sort of appeals to me, and I considered buying a Pi 400 model for it. But then, I rejected the notion again as purely gimmicky. I can emulate anything I like already on my regular laptop or desktop. I already have a Pi 4 connected to my TV, acting as media centre mainly, but I could run games on it as well. Having a machine purely as a dedicated emulation driver… don't know, it feels limited and limiting.
