How big is your tv and how far, when gaming, do you sit from it?

Anyway, I have most of my systems hooked up to a 42" and I usually sit 4' away from it when playing video games. Not sure if that's normal and I'm not blind by any means(not yet, anyway), I just can't get myself to play any further back.

I don't know but I can tell you this. Play around with your aspect ratio, switch from 1080p to 720p back and forth and back and forth.

After you do that a few times, you'll never want to go back to 720p.

I have a 40" and sit 3-5 feet normally. In the living room we have a 47" and I am guessing 10-11 feet and it just doesn't feel as immersive as when I sit close imo.

I can easily tell the difference between 1080p and 720p, and I don't want to go back to 720p, but that's not what this topic is about.
