Discovering the Unseen FPS Rates: Exploring the Mysterious World of Temporal Resolution in Gaming

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

My career as a journalist has focused on exploring attempts to break the FPS event horizon in gaming. However, I often dismissed these efforts, saying that all games looked the same. This perspective would lead to people like our hardware editor James mocking me for being objectively wrong. But a recent study published by The Guardian suggests that I might have been onto something after all. It turns out that we all perceive life at different FPS rates. So, that player dominating in Fortnite might not be cheating after all, but simply experiencing the game at a different speed than you do.

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.

The fact 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 or even choosing the right type of computer hardware for gaming enthusiasts who want to optimize their performance in these types of games.

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.

Overall, understanding how our brains process visual information can give us insights into how we perceive and interact with the world around us, both in gaming and beyond it
