No, you are simply mistaken about the monitors and scaling, Mussels. Almost all do 1080p without scaling. The ones that don't are in a vast minority.
it was hardly specific, but i can see what you mean. i was mistaken in my interpretation.
my point still stands tho: game devs have ALWAYS been lazy with aspect ratios. even going as far back as company of heroes, 16:9 was natively supported and 16:10 wasnt (the 2D hud elements stretch - the mini map radar goes from a circle to an egg, for example)
It is my choice if i would prefer no black bars, and less issues with the games i play.
I am not telling people 16:9 is superior for everyone, i'm saying its superior for what I do. What i'm getting pissy about is people in this thread telling me 16:10 IS superior for EVERYTHING, and ignoring me and other people when we say we cant stand black bars.
If you can, good for you - but we cant, so stop Fcking telling us what we do and dont like.
