Why are gamers are so critical with the games frame rate?

i know its understandable with some games like FPS and fighting games but some gamers also complain on framerate issues on their ****ing cutscenes!! I dont understand this generation.

They're told what to think.

Largely, they have no clue about the subject.

I don't understand the difference between 30 and 60..once it gets close to 30 fps, I stop seeing any difference. I understand it from a technical standpoint, and I have really good eyesight, but 30 fps looks just like 60 fps to me..

I'm not critical but when I see 60FPS...DAT 60FPS!

I'm pretty easy going but think it is a valid complaint. Personally for the type of games I play I'm fine with 30fps. Especially being such a HT junkie I don't need a high frame rate.

But what is distracting and annoying is having a game that can't keep a constant rate. Especially if it really starts to chug and has momentary pauses. Is it a deal breaker? No but I would of been a whole lot happier if Dragon Age and Two Worlds II had a constant 30 fps.

2 things that really jump out at me with video games is varying frame rate with dips all over the place and screen tearing.

because higher fps looks better than better graphics

As long as there isn't constant noticeable slowdowns, i stop caring about frame rate
