60FPS is crap.
People who say there is no difference between 30 and 60FPS are gullible misinformed ones.
My display goes up to 170 true Hz. And there are games where I get enough FPS to utilize that properly. Even that is not the smoothest I can imagine.
30FPS smooth, only if you use motion blur. Otherwise horribly laggy
60FPS somewhat smooth without motion blur
120FPS very smooth without motion blur
170FPS dear mother of god that is smooth, but I can still imagine it being smoother.
I would never be satisfied with 60FPS for fast paced games again.
EDIT: I'm not "telling myself" anything. Although my display does 170hz, I don't do it. Why? Because I need to lower the resolution too much. I am fine at 1600x1200 @ 110hz. I'm not trying to defend anything.
If you REALLY don't see how 60FPS seems laggy, I am terribly sorry for you. Your eyes must suck hardcore. Try it yourself. Two computers side by side, doing 30FPS and 60FPS in two easy to run games like half life 2. Limit the other one to 30, and the other to 60. You will see the difference. Until you do this, you have no basis to comment.
See this link people, this proves to you that 60FPS is visible http://webcache.googleusercontent.co...www.google.comEdited by De-Zant - 5/19/11 at 6:10am
