Mini pc for TV - old games etc

any recommendations for a small tower or brick to run some old games, watch multi media etc for our lounge. Would purchase a wireless mouse and keyboard. Would like to run games such as Battlefield 1942 etc,

We have an old HP7600 SFF on the shelf under the TV for media stuff. A couple of gig of RAM, XP, video card to connect to the HDMI on the TV and I swap sata laptop drives in and out for storage and stuff, streams no problem, wireless mouse but the keyboard isn't (it broke), does the trick no problem.

Google them. The raspberry pi is the cheap computer. The others are the recommended free software.

If your a Mac person get a mini-mac. The cheapest computer they make yet it does virtually everything most people need to do, you can run the usual programs etc or whatever you like on it, and movies etc hooked up to the telly. Works sweet. You can then get cheap bluetooth/wifi keyboards or trackpad/mouse and use it as a full blown computer if required.
