Lutz Latta has a great blog post about running the game Doom on an Intel Edison board with an Adafruit 2.8″ TFT. Lutz goes into good detail about how the Arduino code for the display was used as a basis for porting the display to the Edison. For sound playback Lutz uses a PWM signal on the Edison with a low pass filter to drive a speaker, and for control a Playstation 4 controller is connected with Bluetooth. Nice work! You can pick up your own Intel Edison and relive the glory days of PC gaming too.
