Thought I would bring this thread back with another set of questions--
This is mainly directed towards those who have poor eyesight but generally dislike playing games with their glasses/contacts in. What is your ideal resolution? For example, are you near or farsighted? Do you use 4:3, 16:9, or 16:10? Do you like to use smaller resolutions and stretch them, black bars, etc.? How far away are you from your monitor? Any other responses are welcome, even if they're not in my list.
I cannot stand playing games with my glasses on due to constant headaches, essentially making it harder for me to focus and have fun. I'm nearsighted, so I can't see things far away, but my vision close-up isn't outstanding either, so it sometimes gets pretty hard to see heads/small details while playing. I'm probably slightly below two feet away from my monitor while I'm playing games. I use 4:3 stretched resolutions to try and supplement my poor eyesight. 1280x720 is generally my goto, but it isn't exactly perfect.
