The home theater room is the center of entertainment in most homes, whether you’re in there by yourself, with the family, or hosting a party. The perfect projector can set the perfect scene for playing video games, and it’ll certainly have you excited to invite people over to experience the immersive display of the big screen. While it is a home theater projector, the Formovie THEATER provides an incredible gaming experience in 4K UHD that’ll make you wish you’d been playing on the big screen all along, and we’ve got a great list of games that can heighten that experience even further. 

Why Is a 4K UHD Projector Great for Gaming?

The most obvious reason a projector may be better than a standard TV or gaming monitor is of course the huge screen size. It allows you to have a greater view of the battlefield, and most importantly, the opponents coming from every direction. But a 4K UHD display looks fantastic regardless of the size for the following reasons:

Cinematic Resolution 

Thanks to the latest advancements in technology, Computer Generated Images, and AI, video games are created with the finest and sharpest details in the imagery. A screen with 4K UHD resolution displays more pixels per inch than a regular display to make images appear more realistic and have you submerged in the game

Swift Refresh Rate

The ideal refresh rate for watching a movie is anywhere around 30 Hz- 60 Hz, quick enough to keep up with each incoming frame without a jump or skip. For gaming, however, the visuals can be pushed out at 120 Hz on the Xbox or PlayStation 5, which means you need a minimum refresh rate of 60 Hz on the screen. A 4K UHD display can provide the necessary swift refresh rate that you need to experience the full potential of the game. 

Low Input Lag

The speed at which the console receives instructions is just as important as the speed of the images coming in. The input and response speed, also known as latency, determines how quickly your instruction to the console will appear on the screen. The lower the latency speed, the quicker the instruction output. The Formovie THEATER is an ideal gaming projector with an Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) that can detect gameplay and automatically take the latency to 34 ms. 

The Best Games to Play on a 4K Projector

Some game modes that are enjoyed best on the massive screen of a projector are First Person Shooter (FPS) games, and Role Playing Games (RPG). A projector with a screen size of about 100 inches can create an immersive and life-like experience.

Mad Max

Mad Max

Following the success of the movie franchise with the same name, the Mad Max video game was released in 2015 and received positive reviews from fans and gamers alike. It’s an FPS game that lets players take on enemies while simulating the role of the movie’s main character. On a huge 4K UHD screen, you’ll get a front-row experience of both the movie and the game, plus you’ll be in total control of the outcome. 



This music game is created to put you in the shoes of a real rockstar, challenging you to think on the spot in the face of obstacles as you navigate the steps to creating a song in real time. It’s absolutely imperative to have low latency when playing Thumper because one wrong move could throw you off and mess up the whole song. Additionally, a projector with a powerful built-in sound system can take the whole rockstar experience to a new level acoustically. 

Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy

According to Projector Reviews, playing the Hogwarts Legacy game on a projector is “nothing short of magical”, which is perfect for a game that’s based on the world of Harry Potter. Because it’s an RPG, players create their own character which they then use to explore Hogwarts, learn magic spells, and battle against dark magical forces. It’s a game that’s currently only available in the highest quality on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Windows PC, so it’s one of those that are best enjoyed on a UHD screen.   

How Formovie THEATER Enhances the Gaming Experience 

The Formovie THEATER heightens the visual experience of any picture or game by using the latest ALPD 4.0 laser light source to display a stunning multitude of vivid colors. It could be considered a gaming projector because it ticks all the boxes when it comes to features you need for the ultimate gaming experience. 

4K UHD Resolution

The crisp, computer-generated clarity of the video games will come to life thanks to the millions of pixels displayed by the Formovie THEATER. 

An Immersive Screen 

Whether you want a “standard” screen size or a huge immersive one, Formovie THEATER has an adjustable screen that ranges between 80- 150 inches to suit your desires. An FPS game like Mad Max can be transformed to feel like a virtual reality game if you sit close enough to a 150-inch screen, especially when combined with a 4K UHD resolution. 

Surround Sound

This projector has a built-in Bowers & Wilkins sound system that’s enhanced by Dolby ATMOS to produce audio with surround sound qualities with no additional plug-ins. This is great for sound details like an enemy sneaking up on you in a combat game, or to deliver the perfect rockstar sound quality of games like Thumper

Game Mode (ALLM)

One of the most unique features of the Formovie THEATER that make it ideal for gaming is the Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) which reduces the lag between the gaming console and the display. This ensures that inputs are almost instant to eliminate the possibility of a misfire that could end the game.
