Video games are becoming increasingly more realistic. They offer high quality game scenes that make you feel like you’re really in the middle of the game. For the best gaming experience, you need to adjust some settings. Learn how to set it all up in the following.

Game Mode reduces input lag, which significantly improves the responsiveness when playing games. On the Home screen of your Samsung TV, you can easily turn Game Mode on and off.

Finally, adjust the Picture settings

People have different eyesight, color sensitiveness, and light sensitiveness. Your own eyes will tell you what looks best. Be sure to adjust the picture settings available.

In the Picture menu in the settings, you can also change the Picture Mode, the Picture Size Settings, and the Expert Settings, which include settings such as Brightness, Contrast, Sharpness, and the Backlight.
