Old dos games won't have the proper resolution, but i'm sure you could still play it. Every pixel in Doom is like 10 pixels wide anyways so it's not like you really need the 1:1.

Not at all. There are lots of classic gaming fans in here.


Ultimate CRT is a 21" or greater top of the line Sony. I wish I had the deskspace for one, my neighbor gave away 2 of them for free but I'm just not going to give up that kind of real estate.

I tried going back to some of these old games but just couldn't deal with the oldschool style keyboard control. Thank god for mouselook/wasd!

Duke always had mouse+kb (I think I actually really learned using it on DNF)...



PS: mouselook - mouse for look around only?
You should try to put FWD on your right click (left if you are a leftie)...

I remember playing GLDooM for the 1st time with mouse look. brings a new dimension into these old games, like aiming for the head.

I'll have to get these modded versions too.

Left/Right only. I tried this just a while back and it just felt awkward not being able to look up and down.

Forward on right-click? Seems very counter productive to me since your left hand is on wasd (or arrow keys) anyways.

I've been looking for a 34xbr960 t.v for quite awhile, I probably wont find one so Im leaning towards a 21"+ crt sony or similar BenQ monitor.
