Yes sorry, I was trying to reaffirm your point based on personal experience and explain how it actually affects the games. I didn't word that quite how I wanted (it also shows why average performance benchmarks are kinda meaningless as they'd score high but still basically be unplayable due to the stalling, having 0 fps for 5 seconds is more significant than having 400fps for 60 seconds if you actually want to play something, but the average fps might indicate a playable game)

This applies to quite a lot of the bigger titles these days, not just 'some' This is likely due to the architecture of the modern consoles for which things are primarily targeted.
