ppl are just more demanding now, more picky, and trying to look for more and more things to criticise. Ppl got bored for FPS, so they started IQ comparisons with 10x maginfied screenshots... Guess when the real stuff gets boring, it's time for the details. I still take the stand that if it takes a screenshot side by side to show me a difference, it's not nearly enough of a difference for me to care. I'm still all about the FPS
I also don't use AA but always use AF. Personal preference.
I also got out of the numbers game. If a game doesn't slow down, it's good enough for me
things have changed.
