Really id say the only area IPS fails is if you're talking about fighting games that require split second timing and fast paced FPS games, But I'd say I play those both just fine on my 2410... Really at the end of the day having the 120hz monitor is useless if you suck ;D
You got to take into account that the inferiority of IPS for gaming is not only the higher display lag. Its just bad for any game where there is any kind of movement.
- Be it panning/moving in a FPS or in an action RPG.
- Scrolling in an RTS or in an isometric top down view RPG
- Driving in a racing game
- Your example about fighting games
and so on...
It's the vast majority of games that are affected.
Games where it doesn't matter are the exception.
I strongly disagree with the

It's not only about having a competitive edge. It's a lot about the sense of immersion (feeling connected with the game) and about comfort.
