My kingdom for a 75" 4k CRT. It will need it's own room, and may eventually fall through the floor. The rabbit ears will be epic. You all can come over to play E.T. and fill up on Doritos and Tab.

The 2600 had horrible resolution, 160 x 192 with tricks, typically 40x192.

i dunno.  i've noticed on a few online communities that CRT threads always revolve around this mythical 4K res 400 Hz CRT that can game at any FPS and any resolution.  maybe that's cool but every CRT I ever encountered looked like garbage above it's recommended resolution (this seemed to usually be 1024x768, 1280x1024, or 1600x1200).  where were all these super CRTs 20 years ago?

i was a CRT fanboi for a long time but I'm on a google pixelbook right now with a 235 ppi LCD and I can't imagine any CRT anywhere in the world looking this good...

No PC CRT monitor here, but just dumping a few pics of a couple of my CRTs in action:
