    I'm trying to find out what are all the frontends available for windows.

    I know of the following:
    Kudi
    Launchbox
    RetroFE
    Attrackmode
    GameEX
    Emulationstation
    gamego
    Hyperspin

    Each one has an advantage and disadvantage to the other. I however noticed that many of them do not use 3D similar to how wiiflow on the wii does it. I'm hoping to eventually find a frontend which can use the wiiflow covers.

    What is your favorite Frontend?

    Launchbox, hands down.

    I love how it sorts my games and takes care of images and most emulation setup for me.
    I also love how easy it is to add a single or multiple games later by selecting folders or single files.

    Depends on what factor matters most for you.

    Ease of setup? Launchbox
    Best looking? Hyperspin
    Supports TV shows and movies? Kodi
    Raspberry Pi based portable systems? Emulationstation
    Building a full sized arcade cabinet? Hyperspin

    Never used RetroFE, Attractmode, GameEX, or gamego.
