Don't know if its the same for everyone, but this is definitely not true for me in gaming. I started out playing Halo 3 from 8 feet away on a 52" LCD and noticed that I played much better only sitting 3-4 feet away from my 32" CRT TV. At first I thought it was the full screen vs widescreen, but then I saw that on MLG they play with 22" LCD TV's and all the comments about it were about how much they liked that size. I needed a new computer monitor anyways so I bought myself a 21.5" monitor and sure enough I played much, much better.
In the end ive noticed that I play much better with a 21-24" monitor sitting on my desk than on any larger TV from any distance.
