Back at E3, John Carmack said that DOOM 4 is going to be a 30Hz game. What's your stance on this?

I think people are confusing frame rate and the game's tick rate. 24.4% (51)
30 fps is gay, seriously, I play Crysis at 30 fps and get pissed. Wtf John? 19.1% (40)
100% agree. 16.7% (35)
How many monsters on screen at 30 fps? 16.7% (35)
Do you think Carmack cares that you don't care? 14.3% (30)
That's it John baby, talk dirty to me oooh yeah. 8.6% (18)

Thanks to Bluehair for this week's Poll question!

I prefer games at 30 FPS, i don't know why, I just do.

wait a minute, is the refresh rate slightly similar to the frame rate?

Yea. Everyone's getting tick rate confused with frame rate. Carmack means that the game will have a tick rate of 30 (33?). Basically, that means that the game updates the level 30 times a second. (FPS is how many times a second the image is rendered by your graphics card FYI)

It mainly means in terms of modding that the engine can't be pushed much further, that it's already pushed technology that can't practically handle higher polycounts and texture memory without performance issues. For the vanilla game I doubt anyone could tell the difference. Anti-id fanboys would have a field-day with this anyway.

And baaaaby. Talk dirty to me! *guitar solo* No. Seriously. I voted for the I think people are....

...Well, I didn't understand the question (I typed that part really slow, for emphasis) but I don't really care about frame rate, or whatever this question is about, as long as it isn't like 2.

I could care less really, a games a game, if I like. I like it.

 #10 - Posted by: GIJesse7 (Member) on 07-30-2008 at 20:23

Yea, to tell you the truth, along with Dimanche, I really don't care about the technical part of a game so much as long as it is stable.
