1. 35 fps is quite decent thank you very much.


No, it is not. 85 is but 35 feels like a slideshow.

EDiTAGE: Nevermind, people have a right to their own opinion on decent fps. But if you want a lot of it don't whine about cpu usage.

I want an fps somewhere in the middle, something like 70-80 instead of 35 or around 220.

Man, Graf would hate my computer.

I get 30 on a small map. <_< The Island gave me 6fps.

Foreverhood is unplayable on my laptop, getting 1fps. I'd hate to even try The Island, considering that maps nowadays don't come with the nodes built to save space... that ALSO eats up so much time on my laptop! (Good thing I only have to use it on road trips for that...)

Oh yeah, Randy? You forgot to potato-ize those links.

A few PS/2 mice that had a terrible resolution felt like slideshows to me... or maybe just an old time movie.

That is not the same. Pre-rendered video can use motion-blur to make things look more fluid using fewer frames. Video games cannot do this.

However, I do agree that 35 fps is quite playable and far from the lower limit of what I tolerate when I play video games.

WoW runs anywhere between 15-30 FPS and sometimes 40 if a place is empty of other players... Even at 15 FPS it doesn't look like a slideshow.
