No - I'm definitely thinking of the lack of antialiasing / mipmapping or
something.  (Just to make sure you know I know what I'm talking about,
I HAVE played PSX on a VGA monitor... it's not a TV video thing... :) )

Example:  Checkerboard close up:

  ##  ##  ##  ##  ##
  ##  ##  ##  ##  ##
    ##  ##  ##  ##
    ##  ##  ##  ##
  ##  ##  ##  ##  ##
  ##  ##  ##  ##  ##

Checkerboard some distance away:

  ###   ###  
  ###   ###
   ### ### ##
   ### ### ##

Even farther away:

  ####   
      ####
  ####
