So i recently got a hard drive for my PS2 and put ffXII on it and this is the results compared to emulation, both are on LCD but i'm wondering will the hardware one look better on a CRT or will that be the best I can get? Also is there much of a difference between hardware and emulation, i can't honestly tell.

    Still not sure if Square Enix or the PS2 is to blame for this but it's pathetic

    I remember FFXII kind of blowing me away with how good it looked on a CRT when it came out.

    If your PC is fast enough to render those games at a resolution higher than 480p, then any 6th gen game will look better than real hardware that way. Well, at least when there are no significant graphics glitches, because inaccurate emulation also introduces those more often than not. You can also buy a high-quality PC CRT monitor if you want motion clarity (though for a game like FFXII there's little benefit compared to an LCD).

        It's a shitty game overall, but goddamn if it doesn't look marvelous. Easily one of the best looking games on the console.

          i love the game but maybe its cause it was one of the only games I had for my ps2, also its confusing cause I know this game had 2 discs but yet websites that host the game only have 1 disc for the game. Whats up with that?

                It did. The golden DVD was the same thing but in Japanese from what I understand.

        That's just rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia. In 2009 I played games on my PS2 on a widescreen LCD TV using the stock composite AV cable. Nowadays I use a component cable, also connected to a widescreen LCD TV, but those games still look worse than I remember them. Component cables have the best image quality and display mode support when it comes to PS2. If I switch to composite now, the image looks vomit-inducing. And the controller also feels worse to hold.

          nah I didn't play mine on a widescreen LCD also I love the PS2 Controller, its honestly the best controller ever, i hate these new controllers with the DPAD on the bottom and all these extra un needed buttons.

          That's because you're playing them on an LCD TV. Doesn't matter if you use component.

          They do not have the "best" image quality, they have the clearest image quality. Play FFX with component, and there's hideous ghosting everywhere because of the post processing effects. Switch to composite and it suddenly looks great, albeit the text is fuzzier.

      >emulation
      Except for upscaling 2D art and the fact that PS2 emulation will always be noticeably inaccurate due to FPU emulation. AI is fricked on a ton of games, and who knows how many no one has noticed a problem with yet.

    the flicker and whine of a CRT will make you feel worse/melancholic after a long session.

    Emulation is already better, be it software or FPGA, the only problem is compatibility with some games.

    RGB scart on a CRT definitely looks better than component on an LCD. Perhaps it's just the quality of the LCD/size, but the colours look slightly dull. I'm comparing my 32" Wega to my 42" Bravia. You would think that the higher definition would definitely look better, but I was surprised to find out that's not the case with PS2 games at least
