Framerate Fuss: The Arduous Quest for Smooth Gameplay

The latest Call of Duty game recently hit; Ghosts promised next-gen ideas and changes that would blow your socks off. While it did gain some acclaim, there were those who focused on it’s shortcomings. One issue bothering players is the fact that frame rate will occasionally drop from time to time. Given the series’ penchant for 60fps, buttery smooth gameplay, this is kind of a big deal – and while frame rate is a tough thing to get right between all the options for adjusting a game’s graphics (like anti-aliasing and v-sync), it’s critical that a game perform smoothly. The fact that such a simple action as aiming down the sights can cause the frame rate to drop significantly is enough to ring alarm bells. (PC, PS4, Xbox One)

smooth gameplay is key in every game. To me it breaks or make a game.
