    Some games allow you to change zoom/field of view/perspective.
    When switching monitor sizes you may need to adjust this.

    I dont... Even...
    There is zero difference between a small monitor at close or a large monitor far away.
    Adjust the resolution. Monitors are completely customizable and distance from your eyes means it's not your eyes that are the problem. Change the resolution.

    If we are talking about computers then I am perfectly fine with 15,6" on my laptop.
    But sometimes I like to connect my laptop with my 42" TV and just blast something with a controller.

    I just upgraded my tv from 32 inches to 50, and it was definitely difficult in the beginning, but I'm getting used to it now. Not being able to focus on everything at once does make it a little bit more difficult, but I'm sure I'll adapt.

    Dear god, it didn't look terrible? Even just on my 20 inch monitor it looks all stretched and pixely.
