It kindof makes sense. A CRT has something more of a constant strobe light, rather than lighting discrete frames, so it makes sense that you can get closer to that experience by having more rapid strobing. I assume it makes less difference if you're already running a high framerate monitor though.

I'd never go back to playing fps games on a 4:3 monitor though... Widescreen adds an aweful lot to the experience.
