Don't really notice it. People use those gifs to demonstrate the difference and then I see it, but while playing a game it's all the same to me.

edit: while we're on that, I have no idea what you youngsters mean with 480p, 720p and 1094950485p. Is that resolution, or what?
What's the matter, the Zubats and Geodudes too much for you? Can't get through a cave with just five monsters? How sad. - mikeburnfire

Yeah I can tell pretty easily. However, I don't think that 30 fps is unplayable like a lot of people do. Yes, I'd rather play Halo in 60 fps, but I'm just fine playing in 30 fps.

As long as it is consistently at 30, or at 60, it's fine. If a game was only 30 FPS, but stayed 30 at all times and never dropped, it would look/feel great. Same with something at 60 fps, but only if it is going to remain a constant 60 (That is why I always have Vsync and triple buffering on for PC games. It makes sure they stay buttery smooth. )

I play 90% of games on consoles.

Anyone who says they can't tell the difference is lying or blind.


The real argument is whether or not it's a big deal to you.
For me, it obviously isn't. For some people it is. I get it.

But this is the internet and we're talking about video games, so everything has to turn into a Smug Elitism Arms Race.

Nope. I have perfect eyesight, but I notice no difference between 720p at 30fps and 1080p at 60fps while playing. I can see the difference if I look closely, but I don't do that while I'm playing.


Well first of all, nothing runs at 1080p on 360, so obviously there isn't any difference. Almost everything runs at 30 fps on consoles, so you're just assuming you can't tell the difference because you haven't seen many (or any) games running at 60fps.

The only people that will say no are the peasants, because they've never actually seen 60fps....or 1080p....or even native 720p most of the time....or even a steady 30fps lmao.
Sorry everyone, just got home from work and saw my son was posting on my account. So just ignore this topic. Megatron1111

When I play L4D2 on my PC, it usually runs at 60 FPS. When it drops below, say, 45 FPS, its very noticeable. Everything doesn't seem as smooth. Its kinda hard to explain, but I do notice it.

I have a gaming PC.
Baseless prediction as of 01/04/13 : the next Xbox will be called the Xbox On.

I heard of an awesome way to "feel" 30fps vs 60fps.
If you could ever find a wind tunnel to walk in try it at 70mph wind (30fps) vs 5mph (60fps)

With 30fps you notice resistance.
With 60fps it feels like nothing is holding you back.

moving through water would be like 15fps.
