Does 120Hz TV affect gaming at all?

I need some testimonials from you owners of 120Hz tvs

My main TV is 120Hz and I love it...dunno if it's really any different than a 60Hz TV though.

I played Red Dead Redemption on my 120 hz set and the game actually performed worst for some reason, especially areas where I was in town. The game would look like it was chugging then speed up to look like it was above 30fps.

I played Resident Evil 4 HD on the set and the game ran beautiful. The 120hz made the game appear to run at a "fake" 60 frames per second and the graphics looked sharper and clearer.

I also played Assassin's Creed 3 and Hitman Adsolution and those games only seemed to run slightly above 30 fps.

If you have or plan on getting any TV above 60Hz, I suggest running the tv in "PC mode" while playing games. On my tv (Samsung 120Hz LCD), all I have to do is run HDMI from the 360 through HDMI2 on the tv and set it to the label "PC". This will lower perceptible input lag more than "game mode". Each tv will probably have a different way of doing this, so you'll have to look that up based on your make and model.

It's not for everyone, but I for one love the hell outta playing single-player games with pseudo 60fps that 120 hz provides. Multiplayer I turn it off because it adds response time.

Lag. Response time and input lag are two different things.

Yes. I have a Samsung 42" and I have to switch it to Game Mode or the response lag is bad enough that I can't even play some FPSes. It's usually fine for other game types though.

Wait. Does that mean all games are faster like call of duty?

So If I get a 120hz TV. I will get 120fps on it?

Playing EVEN FASTER?

Sweet.
