I’ve been playing COD4 on a 32" CRT for two years and done pretty well. I recently switched to a 46" LCD and started sucking, lol. I know this is subjective, but I can honestly say that the TV makes a difference. On the other hand, the LCD is much better for SFIV. (By the way the CRT is a “flat-screen”–not panel–Sony Trinitron; in other words, it’s not one of the one’s where the screen bulges outward)
The reason the LCD gives me trouble with COD4 is because the movements feel much more sensitive and fluid. This sounds like a good thing, and it probably is, but I can’t seem to get used to it. On top of that, the colors are a lot sharper and brighter. Again, this is “good” in theory, but it just doesn’t work for me.
Now I’ve decided to buy a smaller display since I think that size has a lot to do with it as well (The 46" is my family’s so I’m not losing money). I just want to know if there is any “general” difference between an HDTV and a digital monitor, regardless of cables/connections.
