    There's TVs out with stunning HDR gaming with lower input lag, no Risks or chance of burn in..

    What are your gaming habits ?

    I too would be a bit wary of buying an oled just for gaming. I game 2-3 times a week on my Philips oled and have some screen burn from the static HUD (from destiny) it’s got to the point that I can see it in normal content. It’s a hdr game and so I game in hdr mode. My previous 2 oleds I gamed with the same habits and never had a hint of screen burn.

    manufacturers advise that the oled displays need to show varied content so I do not think it’s the best choice.

    Would it show the best picture? Well yeah I personally think so. Games like horizon zero dawn and destiny 2 are stunning!

    There are a lot of threads recently regarding oled burn in that you can get further information and in all cases it’s due to static bars and/or static images.

    For me the OLEDs are the best TV to play, but I am undecided on which model between the 2 is the most suitable

    Well as long as your aware of the issues and decide to ignore the manufacturers guidelines then that’s fine.

    Personally i’d Actually go for the cheaper b8 over the c8. The c8 has the better processor but if it’s excluslively for gaming, a lot of these benefits are actually bypassed.

    It doesn't really matter between the two. Both are very evenly matched for peak brightness, input lag and everything else you'd care about for gaming. The Panasonic has better colour accuracy and motion interpolation, but those aren't particularly relevant to gaming. The LG has four full-bandwidth HDMI ports and Dolby Vision support, which can be relevant depending on your setup. I'd probably go for the LG for the connectivity alone, since the Panasonic's major strengths are geared towards movie viewing.

    Even though I live the picture a oled gives,I would certainly not spend money on one just to game on. The chances of burn is very high.

    But if I was going to buy a oled just to game on I would just buy the cheapest one as you won't see any difference between them at all.

    Makes sense just to buy a good gaming LCD especially if you can get one even cheaper than what oleds go for.

    A good LCD costs almost as much as an OLED, at the same price I prefer by far the visisa quality of an OLED
