does fps change more than speed?

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

I have noticed while playing gta: sa. I was in driving school, and when I turned on the frame limiter, I was impossible to achieve a gold medal. But with frame limiter off, No matter how bad it was, if it was 99% i got a gold medal. Does Fps effect more than speed of the game?

    Some games base their timings and physics off of framerate, hence why in MGS V, setting the framerate to go above 60 will result in thrown items and other items freezing in the air; or how in Skyrim, pushing it past 60 causes items to fly about the room. It's a terrible practice that really should stop, but sometimes we're stuck with it.

    GoldSource is like that. A framerate below 60 fps will start to affect the rate of fire in guns. That would be the most noticeable effect of it.

    The most effect of fps in goldsrc games are accuracy. It is very difficult to target a headshot in low fps.

    That's not true all the time.  In fact, it's only true maybe 10% of the time, and not completely true even then.  There's a long explanation that I'll spare you from here (unless someone is really curious) but the main idea is physics, graphics, and other major systems are independent assuming the developers don't suck and there are no bottlenecks. But to say any of these things are *based off* framerate is a stretch.
