Thing is if it's used with upscalers or not, newer high res TV's makes all the lack of resolution with older games stand out and the entire thing just looks worse.If you hook up a PSX to a HDTV that still has those god awful composite inputs, it'll look terrible compared to an old CRT TV with the same hookups. There are upscalers though... I have a cheap SCART to HDMI converter/upscaler that makes PS1 games look pretty decent. Not a difficult job when starting with SCART though...
It's almost like amplifying all the graphical limitations/imperfections of an older game because newer TV's make these stand out in sharp detail vs older ones smoothing/blending them instead.
Believe me, I've tried it with an HDTV, my 4K monitor and that's always been the results vs just using my old TV instead and that's across all the older consoles I have.
Even a PS2 can look crappy but it's not quite as bad, it's only with the PS3 and similar gen consoles it's looks fine with an HDTV but it's also a reflection on the advancement of the tech as time has passed.
Not much we can do about it except deal - It is what it is.
