Bought a CRT TV for a Retro Gaming Setup – and It Was an Existential Nightmare

Recently, I’ve been looking forward to enjoying my childhood nostalgia, and as a lifelong gamer this has mostly involved spending money on a retro gaming setup. In a rosy attempt to relive the games of my youth, I went all out and bought a PS1 (the impressively small overhaul that’s still pretty, aesthetically), a bunch of games, and most importantly, a 14-inch screen. Bush 1473T CRT TV to play them.

But with CRT being such an outdated display method, why bother buying one? After all, surely any modern TV should suffice if all you have to do is connect a console to it, right? Not exactly. The problem with even the best 4K TVs is that they don’t have input for a SCART adapter, the main method for connecting older consoles like PS1 and N64, to AV.
