I just don't get it, framerate has always been important to me. Like in the early 90s PC shooters ran at 75fps no probs. Even TG-16 and Genesis/SNES games ran at 50-60fps.

And these days people speak of 30fps being fine for Crysis, or 15fps (lol) being fine for your average console game.

I find this rather odd, don't you?

Just the other day I was accused of being "crazy" for asserting I could tell the diff between 30 and 60fps. So weird!

What do you think?

30fps is garbage. I can't stand going below 60 at all.

Less than 30FPS is awful. I never noticed the difference until I bought a PC, though.

The reason they can stand it is because it's playable. Not everyone strives for perfect frame rates.

It's absolutely disgusting to see the framerate drop that low, probably as bad as screen tearing.

Yea I cant stand it when i dip below 60 FPS. Probably why I went with SLI 780's for my Surround setup.

99% of the media currently being broadcast or shown in theaters is 24FPS so....
Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

99% of media currently being broadcast or shown in theaters is restricted to that framerate because 99% of the assets used to produce or view said media involve ancient relics from the past.

I like that 99% number you gave us, I don't have to back it up at all.
