Up For Debate - What are your most controversial gaming opinions?

Written by Jon Sutton on Sun, Jul 21, 2019 4:23 PM

Opinions. Everyone’s got them, and most of them are bad. Or, at least, I think they are. Or you think they are. I don’t really know anymore. Mine are definitely all good though. That’s the beauty of my own opinions. I can just sit there and nod along all day in agreement with myself. Most people would probably want to chuck me in the bin if they heard them all though.

For a lot of topics, a lot of us probably all think along the same lines. The vast majority of people who’ve played The Witcher 3 would probably say it’s at least ‘Good’. CD Projekt RED tried hard, bless them. That’s only a majority though, and there will also be a minority who believe The Witcher 3 sucks Botchling ass. No one’s right or wrong here, although the folks who don’t like it could certainly consider their opinion controversial.

So here we’re setting up a bit of an arena. A chance for you to release that burden of guilt and unleash your most terrible opinions. You’ll need the self-awareness to know they’re bad, of course, but that’s all part of the fun.

I’ll get the ball rolling with a few of mine. I’ll keep them gaming-related though, no matter how much I want to tell you all that each and every person who uses an umbrella should be rounded up and imprisoned. The larger the umbrella, the longer the sentence. Anyway, where was I? Ok, my controversial gaming opinions, let’s go:

  • Skyrim is so average it’s almost mean.
  • I prefer multiplayer gaming to single-player these days.
  • I quite enjoy opening a loot box.
  • I believe Battlefield V is a far better game than Battlefield 3
  • I honestly don’t have a problem with the Epic Games Store (but I do with the messaging).
  • I think we should try paid mods again.
  • Watch Let's Plays is a bit odd and very boring.

Phew. That feels good to get that off my chest. Slinging a few skeletons out my closet with these. Please, lay the hell into me in the comments section below.

And now it’s over to you fine lot. Cast off the same - what your most controversial gaming opinions? Share your finely-honed bait below!

The real problem is that they control everything behind them, that they can control the values and as such coheres people into buying them. Those are MTX in general. And lootboxes are a step off of that, RNG content locked behind a real paywall.

Why do you think it's exclusive games that are almost always amazing?


Exclusive games are funded by Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo respectively, but more importantly, they are viewed as marketing, they expect to lose some money or barely break even with an exclusive and thus developers are NOT only funded to make a great game, but are also not pushed to make crazy profit off of the game, which results in amazing games being made(now not every studio can make an amazing game regardless of money). And then if the game is actually very successful and profitable, they make high quality exclusives and the marketing literary becomes profitable both directly through game sales and indirectly through console purchases.

Bring it to PC so i can disable motion blur and run it at high FPS instead of locking it down to single platforms.

Have you ever had a high refresh rate panel? That's how, hell even running high FPS and then being reduced to 30Hz is awful. Many people run into headache issues not just due to framerate or FOV or motion blur. Sometimes it's a combination of all three or a single one... but to deny that its an issue is very selfish

My previous screen wa 75Hz 1680x1050, in the last 3x months I used it I overclocked it to 100Hz just to see if I will notice a difference, I did not, not only that but when I went to my ultra wide 60Hz monitor I did NOT see a difference either. Keep in mind I could play games with my GPU back in 2016 and early 2017(especially 2017 when I got my R5 1600x) at 1680x1050 without any problem with 90-120fps, so yeah...


And I've played with low fps, as in 20-30fps on my laptop for long periods at a time when I wasn't home games like dark souls, battlefield 3, Dirt 3, etc, etc and I had very little to no problem playing them at those frame rates...

I believe that most who say that they don't notice the change are either in denial or have just never tried it. It's instantly perceivable and not only that, It's also provable and the latter is undeniable. There is a definite benefit there.

While im sure some people are in denial others haven't tried 144Hz for sure. Their brains can't perceive the clear change since we are all so different.

I think we should pit together a CSGO pro team or maybe even noobs and give them a 30hz monitors vs 144hz monitors. It's pretty clear which team will win that what would actually be interesting is 60hz vs 144. That could be very interesting i think 144 will still smash them but it will be closer than 30Hz team.

CS:GO sucks balls, because it has input and game logic tied to FPS, while normal/modern games have that tied to a CPU counter. Also servers are 60Hz so the argument that they get more info from higher than 60FPS as the client updates the server and the server updates the client only 60 times a second, but oh well.

No it doesn't. CSGO is tied to the servers tick rate, not FPS. There are also variable tick rates, servers of 64 ticks and 128 ticks are most common. There is a benefit for higher refresh rates even on 64 tick servers. On clients end, the animation and movement is smoother so the player is more precise due to smoother movements.

yes it does and i didn't say that the tickrate is tied to the FPS...
In CS:GO the FPS plays the role of a CPU counter, sadly and input is tied to the FPS, similar to how it was for CoD until Ghosts and many other older shooters or shooters using older or unupdated engines...


I'd like a test in BF4 for example(it's got the most competitive game modes of any BF game), or a more modern CoD game, post BO2.

Psycho is right. The input from m/k is sent directly to the PC. The monitor is made to display the output from the GPU. But it is about the respond time in ms. The higher it is, the more of the image is delayed.

That's not what psycho is saying here. He's literally claiming that games input is based on a "CPU counter" whatever that is and if that would be true there would be no difference between 30,60,144,240Hz input delay. But games don't work like that they are based on FPS which dictates to the monitor how fast to display

20:14 Jul-22-2019

But games are based upon displaying an image from the monitor from the hardware side (the fps). So 60Hz 16.7ms to render and display the image at 60fps and 144Hz 6.8ms to display it. One is objectively faster and therefore better which can provide you with a benefit in gaming. He's saying there's no difference -.-

And this is exactly how games render frames. Lets say you're at 60Hz with 16.7ms your cpu lets say takes 3ms so render a given frame and the rest of the 13.6ms takes the gpu leaving you with 16.7ms. at 144 this process takes 6.8ms instead. That's a big difference in input delay reduction across all games.

But he's saying its based on some mythical CPU counter that always renders at 60hz aka 16.7ms for an image. That's literally impossible...and as you can see above more than half the time the CPU is doing nothing in a 60hz situations but in 144 that load is spread more evenly. and 10ms makes a difference to your input

But obviously this doesn't dictate the total combined input delay. That's always higher although it's much higher on a 60hz panel (around 35-40ms) and usually sits around 10-20ms for 144 panels. The 10ms difference would be like buying a 1ms monitor vs a 10ms monitor in overall response time. It's night and day diff

way to render an image. Not to mention locks everyone down to 60Hz... super restrictive and makes no sense for a market like PC. In a console world this type of game design would make much more sense but you are literally gimping the game to 60Hz. It does even out the playing field though thats true.

And i can prove that this is how games render images as i explained it. With a recording you can easily tell the difference in witcher3 when game is capped at 30fps(the worst exp) 60fps (smoother but still not quite there) and 144fps (buttery smooth) you can see countless videos of the difference from 30,60,144,240.

Well I myself have developed a couple of (basic unfinished)games in Unity and both times I had a counter, but sure, here it goes.


Here, this explains more modern methods of tying game input and logic to cpu counters/fixed steps:
https://gameprogrammingpatterns.com/game-loop.html


This is an example of CS:GO's input being tied to fps at low fps:
https://www.reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/6y47m8/demonstration_csgos_input_buffering_issue_why/


In normal/modern games at low fps, you just get stutters/lag, but your aim moves normally, in CS:GO it starts skipping and being more than unresponsive:

Oh i understand what you meant with the cpu counter now but it still doesn't change the fact that 144Hz gives you much lower overall input latency in every game at 144fps. The thing i forgot to add was freesync and gsync make the experience much smoother and i don't think your monitor supports either theyre

theyre both essential to a high HZ panels response and smoothness feeling. About the csgo this is a complex issue from reading lenghty reddit comments it seems this has more to do with the way the test way was ran on the server used. Also input lag is tied to fps that was my point all along you said it wasn't.

And no in any game where i drop below 45fps or into 48Hz range my mouse movements starts skipping around it does the same when i lock my monitor to 30Hz in witcher 3 or windows. This simply has to do with the Hz or FPS influencing how delayed the image is going to your monitor at 30fps its double of 60 so you skip

frames you literally cant see the mouse movements cause they are so slow so they "ghost" or teleport around. Test this for yourself works in any game not just csgo this is an ms or response time problem which is why the lower the ms the greater the benefit to the end user. Obviously scaling isnt perfect on it but still

You can only get down to 30Hz and below if your monitor supports interlacing mode and you can see how bad 30Hz truly is even when compared to only 60. Your mouse movement is completely broken and skipping around 60HZ is better but 144 is far better in terms of mouse movement than 60. That will make a difference ingame

Dont focus on the flickering (since it's interlacing) just focus on your mouse movement in windows and move it fast and try to be accurate. You'll see how much it skips around its crazy. and if you had the ability to test 60 compared to 144 you would see that even that is a big difference 60 still skips around a little

But yes low fps affects your aim no one can dispute this but its not just a csgo thing its a general thing. 30hz is horrible with a mess a long time ago before my r9 280x upgrade i had an 5770hd and playing games in 2011 with it put me in a lot of 30-40fps scenarios. The mouse experience was horrific in games

even though i had a 60hz monitor i couldnt power 60fps. but after the upgrade it was night and day difference. i thought 60 hz was sooo much smoother and the holy grail it still has ghosting issues (slight skipping too) but 144 eliminates these problems entirely. it's also got overdrive to deal with response time

I am sorry to be morbid. I might have said this before, but paying $60 dollars for a game gives you the privilege to play the game right then and there. There is the chance that, if you wait long enough for the price to drop, you won’t be around to play it at all. If you know you will like a game, have the money, price shouldn’t be an issue.

Ok,
1: Less games with better stories.
2: Controller support for pc games is NOT a bad thing
3: Epic store could have been a good thing if a % of the gain was to finance small selected Unreal devs instead of the Epic vault.
4: Japanese devs normally deliver games that are at least working
5: Bethesda is no more a dev, is just a publisher as they are unable to deliver a working game.
6: Microtransaction, if not forced, are a bad thing only for players that use them.
7: Former devs from Bioware, Maxis, and other EA"satellites, should team up and publish a game under the brand NEA ( Not Electronic Arts ).

Really? I honestly have never played an online game where I haven't encountered any kids. That includes games like DayZ, ARMA, Red Orchestra 2 and other games that are mostly intended for more grown up audiences. But I don't really have any problem with that either. Just like adults, some kids are nice, and some totally aren't.

I hate any and all kinds of PvP, and all games should have bots available for all modes.
Battle royales are pointless as you never earn anything, similar to getting high scores.
AMD is better than Intel and Nvidia because they are less restrictive and proprietary.
4K is pointless at screen sizes less than like 60".
Realtime ray tracing does not look impressive.
I want another futuristic Battlefield game.
We need way more AM4 STX boards.
All games should be playable offline.
PC games should have splitscreen.

4k works fine on 32" monitors anything lower looks terrible imo. 60" you are talking about TV's here and they work differently cause you sit further away. i'd say 50-60" for TV's for 4K and 70" for 8k. Monitors are different though if you need the extra space 4k brings 32-35" is much better than 27-28"

This. I would personally never want to use a big monitor with low resolution. On 27 inchers or smaller monitors 4K isn't needed, but in my opinion a 32 incher with just WQHD(1440p) resolution starts to look quite soft.

Exactly the PPI on 4K 60" screens is garbage but the distance is what makes the difference. It's not bad if you sit further away from it but for monitors you usually sit really close so lower resolution on 32" looks like absolute crap already why would you go further above that with 4K makes no sense to me unless you

And i've used a few 27" 1080p (still do as a 2nd monitor) monitors and 32" 1440p and while the image looks soft for sure sitting a bit further away from them solves the issue. If you sit close always use this for reference 24" 1080p 27" 1440p 32" 4K 38" or 40" for 8k. if 8k is worth the pricetag it asks

Now I assume this equation is NOT completely accurate, but even if we double the distance from 64cm to 128cm, it's still such a distance that you'll be standing away from a 32 inch monitor to see the entire screen and then to be able to see the difference between 4k and let's say 1440p or even 1080p.


I have a 25 inch 21:9 and I stay at slightly above an arms length away from it to see it all.


Keep in mind seeing the screen not in the peripheral vision, but your central/general vision.
