So with one monitor, if you have a smaller field of view everything looks zoomed in but your "peripheral" vision is lessened. Likewise, a higher field of view means everything looks more "zoomed out" but with more peripheral vision.
My question though is how having multiple monitors affects higher FOV. If you have 2 or even three monitors and set the field of view to 100-120 or something, does everything still look "zoomed out" or does everything look zoomed in like a low FOV on a single monitor, with the extra display width providing the enhanced peripheral vision.
Basically, would having two or three monitors allow someone to get the advantages of high FOV (wider view) without the disadvantage of things on the screen looking "zoomed out"? For a single player game I would think it more likely to just increase what you can see, but for a multiplayer game I would think it would be more likely that the wider your display is the smaller objects appear in the game world.
