Now that I have the means to capture four classic Nintendo consoles via beautiful, crisp, colorful RGB (and will probably eventually take the plunge and get some GameCube component cables), I’m looking to do more videos beyond Game Boy. Game Boy World’s not going anywhere, of course! I’m just, you know, branching out.
But this is a very important question. Do you prefer classic game videos with scanline effects?
It’s a heck of a lot easier on my eyes to play these on a 40″ screen with scanlines, but I can’t decide if the lines have a negative impact on the resulting videos. (I obviously need to calibrate the brightness and saturation of the videos in any case, so never mind the relative dimness of the scanline video.) I’m surprised by how cleanly the scanline video compressed on YouTube, but they may still be a distraction for some folks. I’m honestly torn and could use some feedback.
