A shame to think that CRT has spilled over into gaming. Will no one think of our children?

Nice, I am sure in the right places you could cause moth foaming with that.

Just made me giggle. It's been 18 years so I have a fairly general idea of the median age of Fark users, though I'm sure some kiddo Farkers' eyes may have initially twitched from reading TFA's headline and more specifically, having a cathode-ray-less upbringing.

Just picked up a CRT for my kid. He is into retro consoles. (Playing FF7 again now, but this time on original disc.) He is gonna be Cloud again for Halloween so I guess I'll be making this outfit again. At least he kept the buster sword.

Imperfect Pixels: enry: BLM

this was my best guess, lol


I was going a bit more obvious.  Bureau of Land Management needed monitors in the 80s and 90s.

i dunno what filter is going to make PS1 games look good. they looked bad back then.

the fast-forward functionality would be more welcome in modern big budget games, which are 60% cutscenes and 20% going on a walk with a guy while he talks to you

Nostalgia.  Sony needs to develop a nostalgia filter.

In reality?  As a youngin' I and my PS1 were banished from the living room to a small side room with one of those tiny RCA VCR/CRT combo joints. On a smaller screen like that, even just a few feet from the screen with kid vision the jagged polygon edges were a lot less jagged-y.

Moral of the story, Sony needs to run them in windowed mode along with the filter.

People should only try to play these games in PiP mode on modern TVs.
