It's 2014, and 1080p should be standard on all next gen consoles.

It's not.

It's not the end of the world, it's disappointing but at the end of the day it doesn't make as much difference as some of the kids on here claim. Yeah it's noticeable, but whatever.

This is similar to how gamers have been shown to have superior reaction times compared to the average person. We flex those "muscles" and thus improve them in ways your average person just never really does.

4k gaming is right around the corner in the next few years. 2-3 more years until the hardware is readily accessible at a better price. Can't wait!

How long was it before they made Xbox 360 Elite?

Most people don't give a **** and fanboys do give a ****, hence most people will notice no difference even when it is pretty obvious, whereas fanboys will see a difference even when there is none. People see what they want to see.

The fact that he doesn't care much about framerates above 30fps definitely casts a shadow of doubt on his ability to assess other technical details. I especially love how the article called attention to the fact that he has a Ph.D. as if that makes him any more of an authority on the matter than the average gamer. Hint: it doesn't.

I do however think he's generally right about the fact that framerate is decided upon early in development and other technical aspects are manipulated to maintain that target. But it's also true that many developers don't abide by this and willingly choose to sacrifice framerate for prettier visuals or more stuff on the screen. I even remember the GoW devs talking about a scene where they knew throwing a lot of enemies on the screen would cause the framerate to tank, but they did it anyway because they thought more enemies was awesome.

No, it simply means gamers have developed a greater sense of detail than a normal person.

So, should some of us feel special? Does this mean some of us are smarter--well more observant--than the average bear?

Assuming that the article's comment and response are true--

If you admit that gamers have developed a greater sense of detail than a normal person...why can't gamers feel a little special about that?

i kinda do...

Because a greater sense of detail in vision isn't something that is rare. Some people can see better detail in games but suck at looking at photos. A gamer may be able to tell the difference between texture quality but when looking at handwriting wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the real person or a forger. A mechanic might be able to simply look at an engine bay and see what could be wrong but look inside a computer and be clueless.

The reason why gamers see more detail in games is because of the higher than average exposure to video games. Not because they are better than the average person in perception.
