Okay, so I sold my PD games years ago. Now I’m starting to flirt with the idea of getting them all back along with a new Saturn and whichever other piece of hardware I’d need to play each of the 4 games in the best possible way.
That means I want the game to look as best as possible, with the highest resolution possible, in the best possible TV screen and running on the best hardware.
So PD1, Zwei, Saga, Orta. What is the best version of each game?
Is it PS2 Sega Ages for PD1? What’s the maximum resolution possible? Does having a 1080p make a difference? Can it run on a PS3, and will it run better than on a PS2? Or is the best version of the game, bar the better dragon model and anti-aliasing NOT the Sega Ages version? If so, which is? The Xbox version of PD1?
Same for Zwei. Does it run better on a Saturn or on a emulator with a great PC? What is the ceiling exactly?
Saga. Any difference between framerate or resoltuion between the various versions (PAL, JP, NTSC)? Is 50hz and 60hz televisions still a thing to consider in this day and age? Do they affect it in anyway?
Orta. Is the version on Xbox live better than what we had in the original Xbox? Is the Xbox One X better tahn the Xbox One in terms of graphical fidelity?
I’m not usually into this technical stuff, but for sentimental reasons I want to die having replayed each of these with the best tech we have thus far. Also! Sound! I know nothing about sound…if I were to buy a soundsystem to get the best possible sound experience for each game, what sould I look for?
Thanks for the input. This thread can serve as reference for the future, for other people who want to know what is the best PD experience possible for each game. Imagine money is not an issue (equipment needed to facilitate the experience). Bonus question…as anyone played any of the games in a VR set? How does it feel?
