Holy shit can our eyes really only perceive three colours at once?

Well tickle my taint and call me Susan.

Surely the deciding factor with a swirling vortex of death is RPM, not FPS?
No, cause every 144 frames you can see the unthinkable madness on the other side reaching for you, and you need to time your blinks with that to preserve your sanity.

OT: What if you do notice the difference, but you prefer the slower framerate because the 60FPS stuff is just too smooth?

The lowest of low hanging fruit. I'm not even disappointed anymore.

Is this saying GTAV is utter shit? 'Cause to me it looks like you just called GTAV utter shit.
Not like I care, never played it and never will, so good on you.

... That's a very specific request. I'm not enjoying the imagery. Thanks.

I still can't tell the difference between 30 and 60fps. Am I Hitler but for videogames? Am I destroing this industry by putting innocent games in the gas chamber?

Meh. 60 FPS is nice but I'm fine with 30. Probably gonna be lynched for that, but whatever.

I am with you I can tell the diffence it just seemed to small to care. I have been gaming since before I could read so a small change in quality or reaction time is just part of the game. It alwaysed seemed to me that the people who want to balme things like frame rate for doing poorly or enjoying the game less are just craftsmen blaming thier tools so to speak.

Absofreakinglutely. :mad:

OT: I'm still completely and utterly baffled that people can't tell, but seeing how I can tell the difference between 80 and 90 FPS, I may just have overly sensitive eyes.

It just seems like being unable to tell red from orange... but then I remember that color-blind people exist.

Maybe Tim blinks 30 times a second at exactly the same intervals with the same amount of time distributed between open and closed eyes. I've only seen still drawings of him, I don't know.

Same here. I see the difference. I just don't care.

Unless you have medical reasons or are playing competitive games that really require twitch reactions, I really don't see the point of insisting on 60fps.

I've always wondered when people say that is it just cause they're not used to it and need to just buckle down on it?

Cause when I first started using 60 fps, I was also kinda weirded out by it. It was just so smooth. But after, like, two days, I was pretty comfortable with it and found it more enjoyable overall.

Honestly, to me any person who claims not to see the obvious difference between 30 and 60 is either blind, stupid or both.

Imagine what it would be like to be a mantis shrimp that can see 12 colour wavelengths.

I mean, we would have to imagine a colour we can't even imagine nine times because that is how a mantis shrimp do.

Woohoo! I'm only half-stupid, then!

OT: Honestly, there has only been one game where I can totally see the difference between 30 and 60... However, it was only when I was going from 60 (original) to 30 (HD) that I noticed the full difference first hand...

Other than that, even after that revelation, my amount of fucks for frame rate, in general, is about as given as an inconstant frame rate...
