The photo linked looks nothing like what I'm experiencing on my end. Component in those shots don't look much better. In fact, they are artificially sharp, due to either the sharpness setting being up too high or the fact that velocity scan modulation (VSM) is still engaged. Could be a combination of both.
In actuality, VGA will allow most TVs to pixel map 1:1, which is very much worth it for video games. It also will typically bypass most processing in the TV by default, though some TVs still need user end adjustments. Certain TVs don't do well with a VGA signal, though, so your mileage may vary.
To the OP, please don't let Ice Cold's link dissuade you from trying out a VGA cable (if you have the option). Ice Cold, I mean no disrespect to you, but many others here who still use VGA, including myself, will 100% disagree with you that it looks worse than component. Those pictures that you linked to aren't accurate at all of what most of the VGA users see on this forum.
