I primarily play the Pinball Arcade app on my phone, have used a PC in the past. I'd like to play on my TV with a remote control. When i used by PC, i have hooked it up to my big screen via HGMI but was stuck using keyboard for flippers. Seems like a reach to me but i have a Raspberry Pi and think it would be awesome to play with that but not sure it's compatible. Unfortunately i currently don't have any other gaming systems.

What other platforms have you guys played on? Any suggestions on how i could sit down with a controller in my hands and play pinball on my TV?

Thanks in advance for your help & suggestions!

Nintendo Switch. You can actually rotate the tables vertically on you tv if you have the option to spin it...pretty cool.

I play on PC with a wired Xbox controller. If you've already got the means to get your PC output to the TV - maybe a wireless controller would work for you? As far as I know they're pretty much plug and play with a Windows PC.

The wireless Xbox 360 controller for PC works well for a Windows PC connected to a TV. I haven’t tried it with pinball but it works great for pretty much any console game you might be emulating, and it also works surprisingly well with a lot of MAME games, although not all.
