I’m not a fan of stockpiling just to stockpile, but don’t know how you can go down to 1 CRT after having so many. You should probably grab at least 1 backup if you can spare the space.
Sorry guys, but I don’t think I’ll ever enjoy playing on a scaler . I’ve tried so many times. Something is missing for me. I think it’s the lack of phosphorescent glow or something
Or maybe just the scaling itself that just makes everything too distinct/sharp/perfect.
I’m honestly not sure what it is. There’s just nothing like a CRT. Even via composite, they’re magical for so many games.
I also think the complete lack of screen curvature for 4:3 content looks off to me. I know not all CRTs curve, and PVMs only do a cylindrical curve compared to what I grew up with (a globe style curve), but I still think that adds something for me.
Team CRT for life (I hope). It’s really sad that we may someday find ourselves completely devoid of the original tech.
