When you have a chance to play video games in an IMAX theater, you take it.
That's what Lewis Hilsenteger of the Unbox Therapy YouTube channel did in a video posted on Friday.
Normally, you'd play Fortnite and other games on your TV with a games console, like the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Or perhaps even a computer monitor if your a PC gamer. And those who take it to the next level usually get a projector to play on 100-plus inch projections. But playing games on IMAX is possibly the peak.
Check out what Fortnite and other games look like on an IMAX screen:
There's Unbox Therapy's Lewis Hilsenteger, clearly happy of the choice he made that morning of playing Fortnite on an 80-inch IMAX screen.
The IMAX theater at IMAX's HQ has 80-foot wide screen, which translates to 1,100 inches. It's about 20% bigger than your average movie theater screen, Hilsenteger said.
Hilsenteger said during the video that the purpose to use such a large screen is for "ultimate immersion."
"It extends below you, it extends above you," he said.
Hilsenteger played Fortnite on a PlayStation 4 Pro that can output a 4K video signal. Having that 4K video option would help make the game look sharp on such a large screen. If he played games in regular 1080p resolution on such a big screen, like you would on the regular PlayStation 4, the graphics and visuals wouldn't be as impressive.
