I can play a game at 15 fps, any lower and it's a mess.

30 usually works, but higher is ALWAYS better.

It depends on the genre. If it's a first person shooter, minimum is 25-30 (smooth). If it's a fast paced action game then the same holds. Games like Skyrim I can make do with 25 minimum. Strategy games can dip to 20 but higher is always nicer.
Genius has its limitations. Ignorance has none.

Anything less than 60 is unplayable. The more the better. 120 would be ideal but the current so called ips screens don't support that.
The purpose of my life is to play games. Its the reason I even work.

15 fps is the lowest I can deal with, mostly because I've been accustomed to it with PC games throughout my childhood.

25 fps on up is preferencial for me.

Average FPS should be at least over 40. As for the minimum, dipping into the thirties is tolerable, but I try to avoid it. If it's a fast-paced action game, it should stay over 45 constantly.

Haven't had to compromise much lately, however. Usually not using max quality SSAO and post-processing is enough.

30 is tolerable. Lower, not so much, unless it's somewhere like in a WvW map zerg fight in GW2, in which case expecting it to not go below 30 will result in quite a bit of disappointment.
