I'm in somewhat of a lull on my motivation to play on my Xbox 360, beyond not wanting to play any of my games for it (they're all so DAMN expensive, especially because I don't have a job right now) I'm just starting to get into PC gaming. I have a couple of games in my steam backlog, like Broken Sword, The Witcher, Recettear, Alpha Protocol, among others, but I also have a real itch to play some of my older Final Fantasy games (an itch started by Theatrhythm that doesn't want to go away).
So here is my problem; I have copies of every Final Fantasy on Playstation I could find (6-12), a Playstation double linked to my HDTV via a component lead (Y/Pb/Pr; meaning 420p games looked nice from when I played a bit of SOTC last year) But the games certainly show their age with visible pixels the size of my fist. I wonder if I could have a better experience, (load times, data management, resolution management) by emulating the games using my PC. With 4GB of RAM, a 512MB Graphics card and a wired 360 controller, my set-up is good enough and a window would make jaggy edges a little more bearable by keeping the area smaller.
Long-story-short; compared to the jaggy-as-hell PS2 image on my HDTV, would spending the time finding an emulator to run my PS2/PSX games be worth the time?
