PCSX2 is an open source PlayStation 2 emulator project that’s been in development for more than a decade. It’s compatible with about 95% of the PS2’s 2400+ game library. Sony’s new PS4 emulation can run these old games at 1080p, but on a decent gaming PC you can render them at even higher resolutions like 4K, downsampling them to the resolution of your monitor for a sharper, clearer picture. Even an aging or budget gaming rig should be able to handle 1080p emulation for most games, no problem.
