Well if you looked at the chart above it is pretty easy to decide which game capture software offers more; OBS.
Now let’s talk performance and video quality.
First you would have to go for the paid version of Fraps to release that 30 second recording limit to even start to compete with OBS. But once you do that they are honestly pretty close. To the untrained eye you can’t tell a difference although I am able to pull in nearly double FPS in my OBS recordings. Also my OBS file sizes are not huge as hell like you will get with Fraps.
The simple thing is OBS is the future and Fraps is old as crap.
