Research shows that certain individuals may excel at Fortnite due to their ability to perceive in a higher FPS

As a journalist, I have been focused on studying attempts to break the FPS event horizon in gaming. However, I often dismissed these efforts as all games looked the same. This viewpoint would lead to people like our hardware editor James mocking me for being objectively wrong. But a study highlighted by the Guardian suggests that I might have been onto something after all. It appears that we all perceive life at different FPS rates.

This phenomenon is known as ‘temporal resolution’ – the speed at which your brain processes visual information from your eyes. If you have high temporal resolution, the world appears slightly slower to you compared to someone with low temporal resolution. This means that you may be able to react quicker in fast-paced situations. The study involved individuals being tested on their ability to perceive flickering lights, with results showing a wide range of response times. However, the study was limited to a small group of participants aged between 18-35, so further research is needed for more accurate results.

Understanding that people interpret visual signals at varying speeds is not surprising. We are all unique beings, each with our own physical attributes and abilities. Some individuals may naturally excel at fast-paced games due to their faster perception of events. Knowing your own temporal resolution score could potentially impact decisions such as investing in high refresh rate monitors for gaming. Additionally, there might come a day where professional esports players have to provide their temporal resolution certificate as part of their qualifications. In this scenario, anyone falling below a certain FPS threshold would not be eligible to compete at a professional level.

In conclusion, it’s important for gamers and esports enthusiasts alike to understand the concept of temporal resolution and how it can impact gameplay performance. By knowing your own FPS rate and taking steps towards improving it through high refresh rate monitors or other technologies, you can gain an advantage over others in fast-paced games and potentially improve your chances of becoming a professional esports player one day.
