being "anti-conformist" is conforming.. that kind of understanding may not be for you, tho.
Fair enough, this was me joking. If you know the non-conformist goths in the show South Park you know where I'm coming from.
i think that REQUIRING multiple monitor support for all games is bullshit because REQUIRING shit in the first place is prohibitive
No one said multi-monitor is required. Just like a high end mouse isn't required. A $1000 quad-core isn't required. A monitor that does 2560x1600 isn't required. They are just perks.
Saying a greater Field of View is somehow cheating seems funny when you compare two people with very different machines. You can be running at 800x600 res with all graphic options off/min in a blurry mess at 20fps on a crap PC vs a guy who spent a lot more money who runs hi-res, AA on, sharpest picture you can buy in gaming at 100fps.
Is the guy who had more money cheating? It's certainly not fair. So why is the PC community okay with this scenario? I think we've just come to accept the good with the bad and upgrade when we can. It would be a mistake to force everyone into the same resolution, same frame rate, only certain mice/keyboard etc.
You want an even playing field. Play a console. You have a choice.
Just like any of us have a choice to bitch about a company who see's greater FoV as cheating. We get to bitch and we also get to buy other games that are willing to support emerging tech we enjoy.
If you don't agree that's fine. But you have to admit, even not supporting eyefinity does nothing to level the divide that is the result of the PC's ability to be upgradeable.
In fact I still think having a faster machine is more of a perk than the extra fov.
