Ask Slashdot: How to set up a nettop retro console?

SlothDead (1251206) writes "I have a nettop laying around and I would like to use it as a retro gaming console on a TV. Unfortunately, all "gaming" OSes I could find are too PC like, requiring a keyboard and/or a mouse.
Is there a way to set up the nettop in such a way that it only needs some USB game pads plugged in to get going? An acceptable solution would be that I can just bring the nettop and gamepads to a friends house, connect it to the TV and start playing some old NES games. Bonus points if it shows a simple list of all games on startup, you select a game with the game pad and it starts it with the appropriate emulator.

In short:
- Nettop
- NES/SNES etc games
- USB Gamepads
- No mouse/keyboard"
