Lately as more widescreen monitors are used for gaming, it makes me wonder:
Does it give someone an advantage over a 4:3 monitor player, especially in multiplayer games? Particularly the advantage of giving one player or the other a wider view angle.
There are several ways to restrict the width/height ratio, such as blocking part of the viewport with HUD, or only allowing 4:3 resolutions -- but these methods only seem to annoy people and so are seldom used.
Are there any other ways to make it a fair play for both of the sides?
