He wants to play older games designed for the NTSC video standard. They are not compatible with progressive scan displays or HD resolutions. Older shooter games use a "gun" containing a photo cell which is compared to the video signal to figure out where the "gun" is pointing. None of this is compatible with an HDTV, even one set up to scale NTSC video to HD.
bringbackcrttv, your two choices are to refurbish/repair an old CRT direct-view or RPTV, or go with a front projector that is compatible with the 480i signal (15kHz H frequency, 60Hz V frequency). None of the newer HDTV displays work with the old shooter games.
