Converting an Old iMac Into the Ultimate Retro Gaming Console, Part 1

This is the first in a multi-part series on converting an old iMac into a retro gaming monster. I've had an old iMac sitting around for a while.  This is a 2010 27" model that was spec'd to the gills when I bought it.  For many years it was my daily workhorse.  A few years ago I replaced it with a MacBook Pro that I now use as my day-to-day machine, which has relegated the iMac's role in my office to be a very stylish space heater.
