Another thing that all comes down to preference but like the title says, do you like full screen or do you like widescreen? Also don't be shy to give reasons as to why you prefer and use a certain screen size. Full screen has sort of died out now but it is still around in some ways. Widescreen is way more commonly seen these days and it seems to be supported by everything now. Anyways, enough of my little thoughts. What do you think is better, widescreen or full screen?

Bah... My TV is so small so I play with 4:3... Sometimes, I can play on my mother's TV, then I play Wii with 16:9! When I play Wii, I prefer widescreen. When I play something else, I use the 4:3.

I use a 4:3 TV for playing video games but my computer is a 16:9 display. I cant really choose which one I prefer but if I had to pick it would be 4:3 Full Screen mainly because it is just silly to have two bars on the top and bottom of the television. It is like they are reducing your overall screen size. I just don't see the point in widescreen format when it uses the two bars.

It depends what I'm doing, with modern window managers (xfce, Window's dwm.exe) supporting edge tiling, fitting two windows comfortably into a 16:9 display is very nice. For portability, I prefer a 4:3, my main laptop (a Thinkpad x60) has a 4:3 screen, which makes it fit much more neatly in my bag. However, at similar resolutions, a 4:3s extra height is very nice for reading webpages or editing text.

I liked full screens more, but now we mostly use wide screen. (4/6, yes, we have 6 tv's in the house. -_- ) And I'm pissed off because the widescreen movies STILL DON'T FIT THE SCREEN! >.<

I will have to agree with Prom on that one, I freaking hate it when it all doesn't fit on the screen in fact that is a problem with the Wii U and full screen television sets in that it doesn't like to support the 4:3 format which really ticks me off. It is like they don't even support the full screen format anymore guess widescreen is all the rage these days.
