If this isn't about being right or wrong, then why are you still posting? I'm all for a good debate, but you guys are running around in circles. If you are unwilling to let this pass, get more experienced people involved and see what they think.

And about the FPS stuff. If you watch TV or movies in NTSC (North America) then you are watching a constant 30FPS. If movies/TV are fluid, then how come games need to be run much higher to be fluid?

You probably think 30 is bad because FPS are variable and it probably drops below 30 and that's when you notice the lag.

Now that we're effectively ignoring the debate, I'm impressed at how Gaara has debated. Hasn't lost his temper. I know I would've if Benny had called me a punk, lol.

TV a film have blur added to them. They are not exactly single pictures. in between each frame is a transistion of both the leading and following frame. For PCs that would be like trying to run MEGA bloom/hdr as far as a performance hit.

60FPS is regarded as smooth FPS. If you compare it to 60, then 30 is jittery, but its not that bad on its own. Playable.

Psht, haven't you learned anything about the world. If the popular belief of the century is that 2 + 2 = 5 that makes it a fact.

Just like the popular belief of a few hundred years ago was the world was flat.

So with that, I have deduced, I am infact God
