While the latest generation of gaming devices are great to have an immersive experience, there’s still something about the good old days of gaming that many fans love. They might own the most advanced setup for their favorite titles but somewhere in their hearts they are still the kids from the 90s.

One such player recently tried to relive their past, through FromSoftware’s Elden Ring, using their Xbox Series X. And the eventual outcome was quite fascinating, to say the least.

As reported by Gamerant, a Reddit user named Griefreaper successfully managed to run Elden Ring on their old 13-inch CRT TV. The latter was purchased by them many years ago to play Nintendo 64 and GameCube games. However, in 2022 they decided to plug in their Xbox Series X into this retro piece of hardware to see if it was able to showcase the Lands Between or not.
