In a video game with a fairly linear progression the developer has a choice in what they want to show you and how. By stifling creative choices/processes available to the creator you're encouraging mediocrity and clones.You should never, ever force letterbox throughout the entire game on anyone ever. He is completely right in calling it a sin. There is nothing worse than sitting in front of your nice TV looking at a game that takes up about 60% of the total screen space. It's ridiculous.it's no different than forced fov, which many games employ. Hell, the default Isolation FOV is 47. Frickin' 47.
