I didn't pay for a ULMB G-Sync montior to have the game make itself blurry again.

Off. Always.

I used to be a big fan of it, thought it looked cool.

I have no idea what changed, but one day I thought "this looks s***" and turned it off in whatever game it was I was playing (might have been RE5). Then I started turning it off in everything. It looks so much better, I'm wondering if it was f***ing with GSYNC.

Motion blur is for consoles since they run at 30fps and it masks the awful visuals a bit. But at 60fps and above, it needs to be off.

You could never understand the humiliation I have gone through. . . The burden of having to be the best. . . of having to be worthy.

Motion Blur if it's done right isn't bad. It's certainly less necessary at higher framerates though. I'd say the higher the framerate the less it needs and at 60fps and above it should be gone or off except in cases where it's used for a special effect.

Off. It is a cheap way to try making games look cinematic. It doesn't make it look remotely good or cinematic.

Works best for 30fps and since PC is always at least 60fps or higher it isn't needed on PC. I tried it at both 60 and 30fps and it looks great for 30fps but unecessary for 60fps.

Yes. I don't see the attraction, though some people must like it, I suppose.
I'm a PC and console gamer - I love good games, regardless of their host system.

How does it work better for 30fps? Just wondering.
If you don't like microtransactions in full priced AAA games, vote with your wallet and don't buy those games.

I guess the thought is the blur will hide the chugginess of the poor framerate. Not sure I'm 100% sold on that idea though.

If I wanted "motion blur" I could just wear glasses instead of contacts while gaming, push my glasses down a bit, and then look through them while standing still and over them while moving. Boom; motion blur. Without a PC-side performance hit. Hell, given how near-sighted I am that would also function as a replacement for "depth of field" since I'd practically have to plant my nose on the monitor to see anything clearly and the edges of the display would still be all blurry.


Can relate. Have -10/-10 eyes. Laughed when I read this.
