With VGA over EGA the only real issue may be the refresh rate. 200-line EGA modes are 60Hz (like CGA) but VGA will display them at 70Hz,
so anything which depends on that for timing could have issues. Unlikely to be a real problem with most things, but good to keep in mind.
I second that. IMHO, some EGA games were even made on VGA systems or with VGA in mind (I'm tinking of Commander Keen 4, EGATrek).
To me, and perhaps many others, EGA always had been a valid VGA mode rather than a superseded graphics standard.
Beeing the optimist I am, I believe that EGA as a mode had its prime when VGA appeared and actual EGA cards vanished from the market. 😀
Also, with the exception of some details and the 60 vs 70HZ refresh rate difference, VGA is quite compatible to EGA.
The older ISA VGA cards usually have an EGA emulation mode for programs with auto-detection,
while the newer PCI VGA's at least kept the IRQ2/9 support.
That beeing said, there's nothing wrong preferring an actual EGA card and an oldschool monitor.
Even late 90's gems such as Gateway still supported EGA mode.
