Do you already have a TV or a monitor with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, or are you planning to buy one? Then, you need to be aware of the available games for this type of TVs, as most of the titles are 60 frames per second (fps).
In order to process 120 fps, it is necessary to have a console that has enough resources to handle such information. Fortunately, the powerful PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have everything to make this happen. Also, it is vital to have a TV with 120 Hz refresh rate to run games with such frames per second as most of the TVs have a refresh rate of 60 HZ or less.
Xbox series X with games running at 120 fps list is substantially bigger than Playstation 5 as Xbox introduced FPS boost, that in Microsoft - Major Nelson words is ''a feature employing a variety of new methods for nearly doubling the original framerate on select titles''. However, this increase in smoothness with extra frame rates comes with a cost of lower resolution. Also, some developers have upgraded various games to run at 120fps for Xbox Series X but not for PS5, like Infinite ward did with Call of Duty Warzone.
The most popular games, such as Resident Evil Village, Returnal or Spiderman Miles Morales, still are running at 60 fps, so if you currently have a 4K tv with 60Hz refresh rate, you are not missing much for the moment, at least if you own a PS5. However, this can change soon.
If you haven't seen how smooth is a 120fps game compared to a 60fps one, check this video made by this YouTuber where you can compare how amazing looks a game with such characteristics.
