Definition from PCGamingWiki:
Field of view (FOV) is the amount of game view that is on display during a game.An appropriate FOV is different depending on how far the player is away from a display.PC games should be designed with a high FOV of around 85-110 because players normally sit closer to their display. Console games should be designed with a lower FOV of around 55-75 because their players usually sit further from a display; normally the distance between a couch and a TV.
