Retro gaming on an HDTV?

I'm mostly an old school console gamer (NES, Atari 2600, Genesis, etc.), so I've held off on getting an HDTV for a while due to its poor reputation when it comes to SD content. However, I would like an HDTV for my newer consoles and DVDs/Blu-rays. A lot of people online do claim that old school games are almost unplayable on HDTVs, but, well, a lot of people online are crazy too.

So here's my question to anyone doing some retro gaming on a modern HDTV -- does it really look that bad? Are those 256x224 NES games almost unplayable or are videophiles blowing this whole issue out of proportion?
