I felt compelled to start up some discussion after seeing the Destiny 2 PC advertisements tout 4k gaming with unlocked framerates. Is 4k really a selling point for PC gaming?
- I don’t think I have ever seen 4k resolution available on a TV less than 40-43 inches.
- I think a >40 inch PC monitor is a bad thing since you are generally sitting about 2 feet away from the screen. When console gaming you are often sitting on a couch, recliner, etc.
- PC games are supposed to be a personal experience, therefore you want that smaller monitor. Console gaming is where you often see multiple people in the same room. Some console games are designed for split-screen, 2-4 players playing on the same console. The PC versions of these same games generally only have single-player options.
- Can you really see the 4k improvements on a 24-34 inch screen?
Ever since I heard about 4k resolution I have considered it a “console gimmick”. I feel that 1440p is a great resolution for monitors 27" or larger. Any size less and you should use 1080p. Once you get above 34" then you really should be playing on console.
What are others’ opinions on this?
