Slow is slow no matter what the specs or what you are viewing. I've got an fast rated monitor but it is still too slow so I notice the smearing a lot. It is less noticable watching Tv/video because it is contrast dependant. It takes the most time for a full color change between black and white. Mixed colors and shades of grey change faster. Anyhow games like FEAR have a lot more contrast than typical video so the smearing is much more noticable and annoying during game play. That said a high contrast TV show like a cartoon will do the same thing. It is a contrast thing, not a game vs video thing.
