    I'm wanting to get a Raspberry Pi 3 for Retro Pi but is there anything else that's worth having? Is it worth getting Raspberry Pi Zero

    Yeah I will do. But it's only purpose was for Retro Pi! Is there anything else worth having? I was going to buy a Zer0 just to learn and explore

    It's cheap so why not.

    Put kodi on

    Don't bother with the Zero unless you already know what you are doing
    After the need for new cables or adaptors to go from the microUSB and miniHDMI and the hub to add WiFi and keyboard/mouse, a bit of soldering for the pins, then just get another Pi3 or use the RetroPie Pi3 and use another SD card. Unless you intend to play old games while working on the Pi.
    The Pi3 will be ok for Retropie as long as you know it's limitations on what power it has to emulate.
    You could get a good old compact PC and use that and emulate more.

    The Zero is quite a bit slower in the desktop than the Pi2/Pi3 which makes it a bit annoying to use and using the web a touch frustrating even with chromium.
