This is actually how my live streaming started: I pulled a monitor out of the basement, not sure what to do with it, and when I turned it on, it looked fantastic. It can easily compete with something more modern, except for maybe refresh rate (this one does 60Hz). I had no intention of playing a full game, but ended up playing Streets of Rage 2 to the end.
Be sure to check out the wonderful soundtrack, which isn’t part of the video:
P.S. Today is my birthday 🎂
