PAL is good for TV and movies.

Nope, because we had a full library of games running at their intended framerates and at full screen. The PC market also pulled way ahead around the early-mid 90s once the limeys simply gave up. You're welcome.

Show me a screenshot of a PAL game and a NTSC game where the color difference is noticeable.

The main difference between PAL and NTSC I've seen is that PAL has a few more vertical lines, but that's also the reason of the famous black bars in many games.

60hz>50hz, that's the actual most important (and noticeable) difference when talking PAL and NTSC video games.

It stretches games, it's only 50hz, everything is slow as fuck, it's awful.
And for TV it's a pain in the ass to work with, because whenever PAL shows get brought to NTSC regions, the show's visual and auditory quality gets fucked in the ass hard.
Honestly, if everyone could just fucking settle on one, and start producing for it specifically, this problem would never exist.

I'm just going to explain a couple of concepts to you guys.

The reason PAL has borders is because it has a higher resolution but an identical aspect ratio to NTSC. Essentially PAL has to fit more horizontal lines into the same shape. If the source material has the same number of lines as NTSC, then the remaining lines will be black. If the material actually takes advantage of PAL lines there will be no borders. Alternatively, if the image is scaled properly there won't be borders either.

PAL doesn't discernible lag or latency. It just has a lower cap on the maximum number of frames (which is 50). Properly coded PAL ports should actually have more consistent framerates, because PAL games need less rigid frametimes which is less demanding on hardware.

However, the PAL colour advantage is slightly
overblown. Yes, PAL does have a slightly higher frequency range of colours, but the whole "never the same colour" thing about NTSC doesn't really apply to short-distance video transfers like from your console to your TV. It only makes a bigger difference on long distance transfers like TV signals.

Not at all, the IBM machine was always the most popular in the US throughout the 80s. Business was done in offices, games were played on toys which were completely competent at playing them. Since Americans weren't poor, we could afford to do both on separate machines instead of picking and choosing and making do with what he had (very sorry you had to live through that, my condolences).

Thus there was no reason for the Americans to suffer through terrible early PCs, instead choosing to support them only when they got good. I'm sorry you fell for our marketing though, thanks for the money.
