Now-a-days, that's called living in a museum. The TV doesn't even match the era so why not get a bigger one? :D :P

Personally any of the pre-hdmi non HD I would route to my CRT television. A lot of hard work went into the design of the lower resolution gfx on quite a few games of the era relying on the blurriness of a CRT to give the illusion of more colours etc.

Even with the filters you get on emulators it's still lacking that "Look" for want of a better word on todays pixel perfect LCD's.

Ever since the first Angry Video Game Nerd video, I've seen more and more videos and photos of these huge private videogame collections.
It's pretty cool, but I never really understood this urge to collect so incredibly many consoles+games..  O_O guess I'm not a collector.
