Why are widescreen monitors cool?

Nobody forbids playing on conventional monitors, but their refresh rates and response speeds are not enough for dynamic shooters or fast-paced racing simulators, where the reaction plays one of the most important roles in the gameplay. It is also important that conventional monitors have a standard aspect ratio, and games are already capable of maintaining a high resolution with a ratio of 21: 9. It is gratifying that manufacturers pay attention to this and create widescreen monitors for gamers, where the viewing angle is much wider, which greatly affects the gameplay and completely immerses into the game. Playing on such a monitor in any Battlefield 1 from EA will be much more comfortable.
