I would rather not have the black bars but still have it look great
I mean yes and no. However this game uses full MSAA x4 just like Enthusiast PC's do. That is the trade-off. This looks far better, and is a higher resolution than 900p.
I understand that having black bars allows the developers to render more things in the game as well has have better AA and etc but the thing is, I don't like having black bars at the top or the bottom of my monitor when I am playing a game or even watching a movie... I did not buy a Monitor/TV so that a quater of the screen will be taken up by black bars when I play a game or watch a movie. This is specially true for games and I find it very annoying cause it feels like that instead of playing the game at fullscreen, it looks like the game is in "windowed" mode if you get what I mean.
And I really hope more games don't do this cause imo, its nonsense. I play games to have a gaming experience, not a movie experience and that includes not having black bars. Heck, if you have a monitor/tv that is cinemawide, then ur even more fucked cause the blackbars will stay no matter what in games where as in movies, the black bars are supposed to go away on cinemawide monitors/tvs
