Smallest SNES

Raspberry Pi can be used to build many things, including the world's smallest SNES, or at least a miniature device that looks like one. Gaming enthusiast Hugo doris hand-crafted the clay shell for his SNES Micro, which consists of a Raspberry Pi Zero board and a USB hub. The finished produce runs an SNES emulator that could play just about any NES game as well. Unfortunately, you won't be able to plug in any of the original controllers, which is understandable due to the original slots being larger than the micro console itself, but I'm sure you'll find plenty of worthy alternatives.

Users can switch in / out of pulse firing, and you can set lots of things on fire when you're bored. Unlike the game, these do not have a large cone of fire nor a heavy damage dropoff, which make them ineffective beyond short range engagements.
