Are we to conclude you never played games before this new gen, or only on PC with gimped fps? Because otherwise you wouldnt be able to see anything. Yeah... the exageration isnt doing you any favors.
The only way anyone can tell the difference is to stand really close and have a gigantic TV. Should we really be catering to such a minority at the cost of the gameplay and smoother animations everyone can benefit from?
Logic in this industry... its missing.
I can see the difference in my 40' TV sitting at a good 2.5 meters. It isn't a gigantic TV, it's basicaly the cheapest HDTV you can pick up since 32' prices aren't much different. The upscaling messing with the quality results in a blured image so I lose detail. I don't see enemies at far distances that well. In TLOU, it isn't helping me to snipe since I prefer to keep the scope off and just try to search distant enemies with a higher fov.
If you think it don't make difference unless you have a 80' screen, then the only one that's is missing some logic is you.
