    Almost no games support it well because almost nobody has these. But if you're one of those who plays a handful of games and nothing else, enjoy your ultrawide.

      depends on what you want it for and what you'll play on it.

      that's a lie, literal boomer knowledge. those few games that aren't supported very likely have program to fix it.

      I've played significantly more games that do support it than I have those that don't. And when a game doesn't, there's either an official fix or I just play it anyway with bars on the sides.

    That depends entirely on what kind of games you intend to play
    Many games have either official or unofficial ultrawide support but the quality will vary wildly.
    I played Subnautica with an ultrawide monitor and it was incredibly immersive, but other games will have noticeable popin or other visual issues as a result of forcing the wider aspect ratio.
    I personally don't think it's worth the money, not when you could get a superior 16:9 monitor instead, but there are some use cases that justify it.

      This for me too.
      I love my ultrawide for work and shitposting multitasking.
      For games it's also great if I can reach 144FPS (it help that games running this fast almost always support ultrawide ratios as well) and use black frame insertion mode, but most of the time I game on my OLED TV instead. And I sometimes run them in 21:9 (21:10 custom res if I can) because the higher natural FOV you get is really fucking nice depending on the game.

      >A-a-a-almost no games support it
      Here's Sonic Mania in ultrawide just to show you how wrong this shitty argument is. Even when a game doesn't support 21:9 some autist will mod it anyway.
      My bigger point is that PC monitors in general shouldn't be your main gaming display because they have shit motion and picture quality compared to bigger and cheaper TVs, so the question doesn't really matter if OP is looking for purchase recommendations: I don't recommend any gaming monitors, simple as, unless it has a Blurbuster certification and even they can blew it sometimes.
      Finally, 32:9 (or super ultrawides) are a complete meme because it's too wide and they cause too much FOV distortion. Even on 21:9 ratio, you shouldn't use 120 FOV setting on top of that around 100 is just enough.

    Fuck yes.
    I did tons of research on this before landing on an LG C2.

    1. Majority of games have no ultra wide so you're getting black bars on the side

    2. Of the games that DO have ultra wide, half implement it incorrectly (zoomed in, UI Is fucked, FOV fucked etc)

    It's just not worth it. It's like buying a 16:10 monitor for gaming.

        overwatch literally does have it, in fact it is only games I've seen do LITERAL 21:9 support
        ultrawides are actually 43∶18 but everyone just says 21:9, so even playing overwatch on an ultrawide will have slight tiny black bars on the sides

      Congrat on your C2 anon. That's ultimately what I recommend too.
      Remember to use oled motion pro for 60fps games.

      I have the alienware oled I bought for $1100 and it’s not worth it. Most modern games only sloppily support it. Black bars during cutscenes, fucked UI you can’t change, no way to change the FOV or vignette effect, etc. When it works, like in Plague Tale Requiem or Callisto Protocol (shit game I know), it’s super immersive. Only get it, if you also play lots of indies, because for whatever reason indies and AA do a heck of a better job supporting the Ultra than AAA games do.

    Other than that I regret nothing, but I assume you look into standard ultrawide screens so you'll probably be fine.
    You always have the option to play on 16:9 if the game doesn't support your resolution.

    Ultrawides are amazing, worth every penny.
    For gaming, it's super immersive on games that support them. I have a secondary monitor 16:9 for games that don't. But worst case you could just game on the ultrawide at 16:9 but you'll get black borders on the side.
    For productive, it's incredible. You see so much and really increases productivity. Blender, video editing, programming, gamedev, etc, IMO an ultrawide is a necessity for productivity.
    For YouTube and video watching, generally okay. Most videos are 16:9 so you'll see black borders on the side. But some movies are 21:9 which looks REALLY nice.
