I'm sitting 15 feet from my TV. No problem reading anything @1080p.
Not saying this as a joke...unless you're playing on a tiny screen or from like 20+ feet away, you may need your eyesight checked.
Edit* my wife recently got glasses after I insisted she needed them. I'd be reading a website from across the room and she couldn't read it. Blew her mind when she got glasses. Says she thought she had good eyesight, but was very wrong.
All this time I'm thinking my vision is getting bad! I'm 22. I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking the subtitles, I play on my couch about...6-10ft away give or take. I think its a trend with these new games to have these small subtitles.
Ugghhhhh. I haven't played this game yet but as someone who plays PC versions on the couch this issue has been getting worse in more and more games. Lots of people play PC on the couch nowadays, you would think devs would know and accommodate that. Nothing kills enjoyment of a game faster than unreadable small text. It literally makes the game unplayable.
It's on the small side, but still perfectly readable for me, about 9 feet away from a 50" TV. I'm playing the PC version with the UI at its default scaling setting; setting it smaller definitely makes it unreadable, but I assume that's for PC monitors.
This. And this is why I think having the option to go down in resolution to increase the framerate would be great on console too, lots of console gamers clearly sit too far away from the TV to spot the resolution differences anyway while crappy framerates can be noticed by anyone.
So let the ones sitting 1 meter from 60" TVs get all worked up about all those p's all they want but please let the rest of us use the power in the consoles for stuff that really matters so we don't have to buy everything on PC all the time just to get decent framerates.
my 40 inch TV and me sitting 4-5 feet away from it disagree with you completely. Any other game I can read all the text fine, but suddenly Im doing it wrong here with small font? Dumb logic. Do you sit like 1 foot away from the TV?
I actually made the HUD smaller because it was giving me headaches while using witcher sense with the weird DOF. No problems. On PC, sitting a fair bit away from my 24" screen. But I do have very good vision. I could see it being a problem.for some.
TVs, computer screens, phone screens etc has always been measured in inches even where the metric system is used, might be confusing but would it honestly help if people around here said they had a 106.68cm TV?
I'm sitting maybe 3-4 feet away from a 22-23" 1680x1050 monitor, and I have this problem. If they had an option to make the font bigger, or even just made it white instead of the weird faded color it uses, and/or used a different font, it could help.
I'm sitting 2.5 meters away from a 50" TV. Technically, I can read all of the text. However, practically it's incredibly uncomfortable to focus on text that small from that distance. In the end, I said goodbye to my couch and now I'm sitting on the floor - feels like I'm 10 again.
Worst offender is the shop interface. There's an incredible amount of unused space and yet the item descriptions are absolutely tiny. The first time around I wasn't even able to find out how much money the items cost.
I'm actually thinking about plugging the PS4 into my monitor and call it a day. It's definitely a game that was designed for the classical PC environment with no thoughts given about console gamers at all.
The part the hawkeye/WebMD brigade fails to see when they say "get your eyes checked" is that even if you can read it all (I can), you're unnecessarily fucking your eyes because one particular dev didn't care to offer different font sizes.
