F.E.A.R. is the first-person shooter (FPS) game, meaning that the player sees the action on the screen as he or she would in real life.
Players decide which goal is the best to execute and plan a sequence of actions to achieve it. In a real life, fear stands for False Evidence Appearing Real, the worst hazard because it creates tension, doubts, and even panic. This is not an emotion we associate with F.E.A.R., but I’ll be perhaps the first one to admit I’ve experienced it more times than I can remember. Almost every player faces this over the course of playing this game. Every next player had to overcome this obstacle. Fear comes in many forms including fear of a strong opposing team, fear of losing, not playing your best, getting injured, or fear of success. But I’m talking about another one: a F.E.A.R. that lags in Windows 10. That’s perhaps the worst fear for all professional gamers. Sounds like your situation? Yes, everyone experiences it and constant lagging messes up everything.
