I believe on 16:9 screens an FOV of 82.5 is optimal, so I generally use 83. I used to use 90 and then I started trying 83, feels much more comfortable.


what about 16:10 screens

How does that work? What if you have a 1080p TV which is 16:9, but its across the room, so FOV should be smaller. If its up close, it should be higher, like 90.

I try to estimate the angle between 2 imaginary lines going fromm my head to the edges of the screen.

Yep. Same here.

The optimal FOV depends entirely on how close you sit to your monitor and how big/wide it is... The reason consoles have such a crap FOV is because they expect you to sit further back from the screen. The closer you are to the screen the bigger the FOV has to be to feel natural.


Also you can't go TOO far or you're gonna start getting a warped view... But 90 is close enough to right for me... I can go as high as 120 but past that it starts to get weird... and of course yes, seeing more is better, but unless you're playing hardcore competitively I'd say just go with what you're comfortable with.

Objectively? 120 because it lets you see the most. But I find the fisheye to be a bit too much. I tend to stick around 95 and 105

Tons of numbers here yet I don't even know if they are horizontal or vertical FOV.

Which, you know, changes everything.

I think everyone is referring to horizontal, which is the norm nowadays.

I tend to prefer 80-90 honestly. Anything less and I need to use my mouse to look around too much, and stuff seems unrealistic and stretched out to me above 90.
