@Jeff, I would not trust that video. If you pause at :28 and look at the 30 FPS sample, that is not at all what natural motion blur looks like (notice it looks like 4 frames overlayed, rather than one continuous blur -- this means 4 different exposures with shutter open/close between each -- something screwy in the editing or post processing).

@GQCK, however input is usually buffered not processed by the game logic immediately (because of threading). However that's really besides the point. You could be processing input 200 times per frame, but if you're only updating the screen at 20 times per second the user only experiences responsiveness of 20 times per second, which is what my point #1 is getting at.

Thanks for the vote. I'd add that motion blur (or lack of) plays a part too even when input is not involved. For instance watching a demo or benchmark scene (where the user has no input) at 24 FPS would actually look a bit choppy without any motion blur.

-1. Needs more sources, and I'm not convinced of some of the claims' relevancy.
