Interesting post. I too currently have a G2 and a Quest 2 sat next to me right now, the aim was to send back whatever one I don’t decide on keeping. After the original hiccups of having a X570 board with the G2 and having to use a PCI USB card the G2 is now working as it should be.
However I’ve spent 3 straight nights now, 6-7 hours per night trying to decide which one I want to keep and I can’t pick.
I put the G2 on for example in a driving game, I’ll use ETS 2 as an example because on the G2 this looks ridiciculously sharp, I mean crazy PIN SHARP, however I only need to move my eyes slightly and boom i’m in blur and chromatic abberation land, so everytime I want to glance at my speed and/or GPS/Satnav it goes from pin sharp to blurred, it’s not totally unreadable but it is extremely immersion breaking.
So then I put the Quest 2 on in the same area of the map etc, and yes it’s not so sharp, but the uniformity of the picture remains the same throughout, and I can glance down and across to my gps and speedo and remain fully immersed, I can move my eyes as far as I humanly can and the Quest 2 remains unblurred. At this point I decide, yes i’m going to keep the Quest 2 and send the G2 back.
Then I put the G2 back on, and boom I’m hit with that crazy pin sharp picture, and I’m all the way back to sqaure one, I’ve been doing this now like I said for 3 nights in a row, only difference is the games I try.
I am trying to convince myself I will get used to the tiny sweet spot on the G2, get over it you know, and not be so bothered about it, but everytime I keep trying to tell myself that and try to get myself immersed, it repeatedly keeps breaking my immersion and enjoyment.
