Modern televisions are great for watching modern media formats but if you've ever tried some retro gaming with a dated console on a newer set, you're already aware that things turn ugly real quick. Never mind the fact that you can't (effectively) use accessories like Nintendo's Zapper with modern sets - old consoles played on newer TVs simply look like a smeared mess.

Fret not, as the gang over at My Life In Gaming is here to help you get the best picture possible from your retro console. As you'll see in the video, they do a great job of explaining how each type of common cable works and which will give you the best results.

You'll need to spend a bit of money on an external scalar called the XRGB-mini FRAMEMEISTER to get the absolute best image possible but if you're a hardcore retro gamer, the investment will be well worth it.
