Why does everyone need 60 fps?

It has been my understanding for many years now that anything beyond 30 fps is virtually indistinguishable when gaming

Could care less = you care at least somewhat. Couldn't care less = you don't care at all.

A lot of older games don't give you direct, full control of the camera so frame rate isn't that big a deal. I can't think of a single PS1 game that did and even games like that on N64 were pretty rare.

For OoT specifically I've been playing the 3DS remaster which runs at a much higher fps and it still feels clunky and doesn't give you control of the camera except in look mode and aim mode, and even then the camera is extremely slow to move. I never played the original but I assume it works the same.


Pretty much, yeah. Even the FPS on N64 were quite slow to turn and a lot of stuff felt very smoothed over.

Crysis plays fine at 30fps, and is still quite playable at 20 or 15.

I refuse to believe that anyone thinks a first person shooter is playable at 15fps.

I mean... how?

wasnt the original doom below 30fps?

Higher FPS allows for better input response from your controls, be it Mouse + Keyboard or a Gamepad. No one can deny this fact. A game running at 60fps will run smoother and be more responsive in regards to the controls. At 60fps very little input lag should be felt unless it is caused by an external source, such as the monitor, the mouse, or even the game when using something called vertical sync and triple buffering.

I think the home video/soap opera camera effect on tvs is its sort of running false framerate where its either just inserting duplicate or black frames. im sure someone here knows the details better than I.

To justify spending 700$ or more on a GPU.

Wow, I can't believe how much butt-hurt I caused. I mean, thank you guys for helping me to understand, but I didn't realize this concept hit so close to home for some of you.

I feel like the difference in the DMC video is still pretty negligible, but http://www.30vs60fps.com/ shows an undeniable difference and of course I'd rather be playing at 60 fps. I've been a console gamer for so long that I was completely unaware of this shift in expectation. Glad to be up to speed.
