Seriously. I remember playing games on PC years ago with an outdated card... playing something like Morrowind with like 18-20fps... and guess what I didn't care an ounce. It was completly playable. Did it make the game less enjoyable? Hell no.
I used to have a 3dfx voodoo 3 back in the day and was glad just to have 3d accelleration... DId I expect 60fps out of every game...no. Why is it something that needs to be today?
I usually would pump up the graphics to max and have lowish frame-rate.. and it was fine.
When did this obsession with having locked 30 or 60fps come from? I don't remember it being dicussed years ago. As long as the game is playable it shouldn't matter. There have been a number of games that reviewers bashed for low fps yet, I found them fine.
Shouldn't we be concerned if the game is fun or not, not if it hits 30 or 60 all the time? I could care less as long as its playable. And a few fps dips does not make a game unplayable, of course the internet seems to think so ...
