Depends on your eyesight, the pixel density of the screen and the viewing distance.

depends more on the engine, size of the screen, and relative distance more than the resolution

I reckon 150 PPI or so would render AA pretty meaningless, unless the game is inherently jagged.

Trick question. AA is never a necessity.


This is the correct answer.

I won't concern myself with the opinions of this so-called "Master Race".

That is why you remain a lesser creature, and we sit high atop our mountain and scoff at you.

Trick question. Now we know who are the filthy casual console peasants.

When you have an extremely high pixel density I guess. So it wouldn't necessarily be just resolution, but screen size as well.

If the game is pretty demanding I won't f*** with AA settings. I could use fxaa but it looks worse than w/o aa. If I could use 2x msaa at all times with no sacrifice to performance I'd be pretty happy.
