Ok, everyone here is more or less paranoid with thing like pedantism, period-correct obsession etc. so what are yours extremes ?
I simply cannot play games on overpowered hardware. I'm used to squeeze 100% of hardware I own and it's just like another side of the coin... Brain goes that: 'what's the point of having new PC if you still gonna play the same shit as on previous rig?'. And it not about being period correct or using og hardware, I never cared about e.g. real SNES but since I played lots of titles on Pentium 200 MMX, playing the sane titles on Core 2 Duo feels like I'm wasting hardware potential or something.
Another example? Since my og Xbox (which is just 733 Pentium III with 64 MB Ram) runs 90% of N64 library well via Surreal 64 emulator, there is no way I would run the same games on Ryzen rig without the feeling of disgust and so on.
Here in Poland, when one uses overkill measures we say 'It's like using cannons against sparrows' - and with some games I'd should say 'It's like using NUKES against them'. I know it sounds stupid but that's how it is.
