Just curious how many people still fire up their Super Nintendo, or other retro systems.
I still play my SNES, as well as my Genesis, Sega CD, Saturn, PS1, 32X, Jaguar, 3DO, TurboGrafx-16 etc, etc... it goes in phases for me. I might go two or three years with hardly touching retro games, and then all of a sudden, it seems like the only games I'm interested in playing are Retro. I recently bought two next-gen gaming machines (PS4 and XB1), yet I find myself strangely attracted to playing retro games right now.
I'm using a standard Super Nintendo, with RGB cable going to a Sony PVM-20M2MU. The monitor is in near new condition, and my video quality is absolutely fantastic. Of course, it's just a 19 inch 4:3 screen, so it's more of a sit close and zone out to the retro gaming experience type thing. I've tried hooking my systems up to my plasma and my projector and stuff like that, but I always end up back with my CRT when I want that reference quality.
This isn't my video or my setup, but the monitor is the same, and you can kinda get the gist of it. I have my sound going to a pretty high quality sound system. Games like F-Zero on my setup are pretty impressive with the combination of the RGB video and the high quality sound chip in the SNES. Super Ghouls and Ghosts, Contra 3: The Alien Wars, Super Castlevania IV.... All those games look and sound amazing on my setup. It's a joy to play these great games from the early 90's, on a monitor I would have never been able to afford originally. ( my PVM originally retailed for about 6 grand brand new, it was primarily sold to hospitals as an Endoscopy monitor )
