Yeah, I tried OBS once, and ever since then I've been using it instead of XSplit.

I don't quite understand. If it was designed for older hardware, wouldn't it naturally look better on newer hardware?

The only thing you can scale up in most emulated 3D games is the resolution. All other parts of a game remain the same. I'm talking about things like polygons and textures. Just because you increase the resolution of the rendering, an ugly low-res wall texture is still gonna be ugly and low-res.

Wind Waker is made with a very artsy style and scaling it up to high resolutions make it look like it's far from 10years old graphics.

Twilight Princess is built for the same hardware, but it's using a much more realistic approach, and those often require more computing power to look good. (because low polygon counts(jaggy edges) look pretty unrealistic)

Just make a comparison between the two:

Pfft, compare Wind Waker instead. That is truly amazing considering that the game was made for 10years old hardware.

Sounds kinda dumb to me to make a game fit for 10 years old hardware >.>

Hardware 10years old today. Don't twist the meaning..
"I saw [Twilight: Eclipse] in theaters with a girl I was dating at the time. I spent more time staring at my toes and wiggling them than I did watching this abomination. When Edward proposed to Blank Face, I finally looked up with a revelation.
I blurted out loud, in a dead silent theater full of teenage girls on opening night "Wait a minute, Edward has no blood flow. How does he get an erection?" I heard several men laughing, and had several girls turn and stare at me.

I did not get laid that night." - Berengier817

Perhaps DuckDuckGo? Not sure if it fits the bill, or if it's too obvious.

Is the list only for Windows-compatible stuff?

EDIT: Collusion add-on for firefox.
