How good is retropi on 3B+?.I have a 3B+ and would like to use it for retrogaming instead of getting a 8gb pi4.How well does it run?It does depend on the game but what have been your experiences with using 3B+ for retrogaming?

Pretty much every 8-bit and 16-bit system should run fullspeed,
on some 32-bit systems like PS1 you get acceptable results (also depending on the game),
and others like N64 perform rather bad on a Pi 3B+

the PS2 emulator is only available for x86, not for arm like Pi 3B+

Depends on what games you play. Since you have it, why not give it a spin and find out?
