    it just doesn't look any worse on new TVs. You can make the game blurry there if you want to

    Whenever I play the PS2, I just change the TV from widescreen to standard.

    Or do standard. Your fingers. Your choice.

    Hard to imagine the original game doesn't look better on a CRT than on a modern tv tbh

    A huge part of the perceived difference in image quality is that the screen is bigger, so the same amount of pixels get stretched over a bigger area. A 50" CRT wouldn't have given you a sharper image.

    Going from 32", which is reasonably big for a CRT, to 42" nearly doubles the area of the screen, making each rendered pixel twice as big as before.

    People's standards for what is considered a big screen have changed. People's standards for what's considered a sharp image have changed. My PC screen is nearly as big as my parents TV (24" vs 27") when I grew up, and I'm sitting two feet away from it. I used to sit 7-10 feet from the TV when I was a kid, of course the image is gonna seem like it was sharper before even if it wasn't.

    Sharper no, but it would look better, wouldn't it? The LCD has to stretch and upscale, the CRT can do it 640*480 natively? Unless I misunderstand. Plus you get CRT pixel bleed which softens things

    There is no "native" resolution on CRT monitors . Pixel bleed is due to the signal cables, not the monitor, and you don't get that if you connect your PS2 with proper RGB component cables.

    Yes, but then any sub-HD resolution image on a HD CRT won't suffer from the same distortion as on a LCD HD screen, right? As the CRT has no native resolution.

    What the hell dude, I was sure pixel bleed was inherent to CRTs. Why do all those CRT filters use that effect if that isn't the case?? Is this all just lies?

    I thought that I was listening to a Chilled Out John McEnroe and a Jaded Bill Medley

    I'm so glad they're remaking FF 12! But with all the remakes coming out, I realised that this game is probably someone's childhood. And that makes me even happier. Final Fantasy has one of the strongest legacies in gaming history.
