Why does everyone want a high frame rate when our eyes cant see it?

Play a game that has drops to 24fps. Its horrible. 16fps is unplayable. Videogames aren't movies.

/thread


To be fair spikes and drops are the main times you notice anything when playing a game. If you had a locked 30fps and a locked 60fps most of the time you wouldn't notice the difference if they weren't side by side.



Not sure if serious...are you telling me you don't see a difference: http://imgur.com/AkXNAzj

It's a difference of night & day

First off those are side by side(see the end of my last post) and second a full game is worlds apart from that image.


So you're saying you wouldn't notice that type of difference if it wasn't side by side?

I'm saying in a well made game with a steady frame rate it's not an issue. I'm also saying the main time a gamer notices frame rate is when there are spike or dips.

So all this talk about needing 60fps in games is unfounded. We don't need it because our eyes don't know the difference. Does this make sense everyone?


you are just kidding right?

you gotta be


Human brain is just like a camera. It takes slap shot of the world and process it 1 slap shot at a time. The human brain can't process more than 30 slap shot per second.



Yes it can.

I can tell the difference between fps. What I can't tell the difference between is 1080 and 720 res.

My brain doesn't play hockey.

Also, even if our eyes DID only see 30fps, that doesn't mean we can't see the difference between 30 and 60fps.

Frame rate of the human eye and why it's not at all like a camera is explained at about 1:40 into this video:

And just for the hell of it, this one is about the resolution of the human eye:

I seriously wonder if whoever started this BS way back when has impaired vision and really can't somehow see a difference in the same way color blind people can't see certain colors properly.

Take your Xbox 360 and play a Halo game for 30 minutes. Then play a COD game for 2.

If you don't immediately say, "Man, COD seems way smoother", when you go for your driver's test tell the person you need another 20 years to study.
