How much difference does a TV make?

Posted on October 18, 2015 at 6:35 pm

I was recently playing a game at my friends’ house, a friend I usually beat! He hadn’t been playing the game as often as me, and I couldn’t work out why I was losing, but then it hit me. It was the TV.

Whenever I would play at home I would win, and it must be because I’m so used to my 55 inch TV. My friend had a non-HD 32 inch TV, so the quality just wasn’t the same, and it seemed to put my off my game somewhat. Some games need to be played in high definition, like FIFA 16 and Grand Theft Auto, you can see opponents clearer, and you can enjoy the game without thinking “something isn’t quite right here”.

A television is something you get used to, just like a game, and I know people will disagree and say something along the lines of “a good workman never blames his tools”, but this just isn’t the case in gaming!
