I don't think responses from random people who post on video game forums is "proof" of anything. Go do some real research if this is really about having a discussion with a friend. You know, go look up stuff on how the brain processes information and how that relates to the eye (hint: we don't see in "frames" at all)
Your right that's it's not "proof," but having a larger sample size of people saying one thing or another is better than only asking 10 people. Also some people have different examples of games or experiences they've had so that's also better than a few. Everybody is different so I want to know how everyone else experiences frame rates. Some people are simply too stubborn to give an honest answer and I want to know who they are.
This is one of those things that just needs to really go away. If people literally can't see the difference, then they either have 1) something wrong with their eyes. 2) their brain is incapable of registering the difference (brain damage or they are so thick that they can't tell the difference between two videos).
There is no discussion on the matter. There is a real and important difference that can be seen by people whether it "bothers them" or not.

The only time I've ever managed to see a difference between the 2 is that counter strike example. But that's not representative of actual gameplay. You don't play CS by spinning in a circle as fast as you can. And if motion blur had been applied, the would have been no perceivable difference.

The problem with asking the console boards is that they want graphics over framerate and the devs know it. I know there are a few titles that support 60 fps on the current gen consoles but they aren't the most popular choices right now.
On topic: Yes I can, if my game drops past 45 fps it bothers me quite a bit.
