Resolution and Frame Rate all depends on what you are playing and where you are playing. Effects are in the middle to me.

If I am playing on TV, I want the biggest screen possible. The bigger the TV screen, the more important the resolution. Right now, I am at 75" and 4K, I can still see plenty of room for improvement over 4K at 75". However, when 8K arrives, I will likely move to 85" - 100" depending on price, meaning some of the improvement will be diminished due to the increase in screen space. At the end of the day, I will always choose Resolution, then Effects, and the Frame Rate (30fps min) on TV.

VR is a different story. In VR Frame Rate is the most important. For me, I want all VR games running at 120FPS as the standard. Next would come resolution, which is actually more important in VR than on TV. That will continue to be true as VR moves to encompassing the entire field of view, but for me, 120fps remains most important. Coming in way at the bottem is effects.

Now when it comes to handhelds, 1080p on a 5" screen is already great to me. You can bump up the resolution, but with a 5" screen, there is just not enough space to show the details. I find framerate to be a little more improtant on handhelds than on TV, but not as improtant as in VR. For me on handhelds, I would go for 1080p/60, then just keep improving the effects.

Given the option next gen, I would love to see more games give the players options. We have reached a point where we can have 1080p/1440p/4K, or 30/60/120fps, or Low/Medium/High effects. I think the best path forward for the indursty is to let the players choose the experience that best suits them. Give us Home, VR, and Mobile, and let us play how we want, and where we want. I believe that should be the ultimate goal.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
